Dai Heather Hayes - Pitts Special Aerobatics Training Provider

Dai began his flying career in the Royal Air Force where he flew the Hunter and later became an instructor and display pilot. He left the RAF in 1971 to pursue a career in civil aviation which has included Air Taxi, Instruction and Examining work as well as holding posts with the UK Civil Aviation Authority.

He is currently the CAA Regional Flight Test Examiner for Commercial Pilot and Instructor Ratings and the issue of Display Authorisations. An active display pilot in the region, his displays are something of a local legend and he is a hugely respected figure in Scottish Aviation.

Dai has been flying aerobatics for fourty years and his knowlege and enthusiasm for the subject are unmatched. Flying with him is a real privelege and experience. He is a very thorough and patient teacher, but do expect to be shouted at from time to time when you get something wrong! This is old school quality instruction from a Grande Master.

The Location

Training on the Pitts Special S2A takes place at Picturesque Scone airport in Perthshire, Scotland.

The airport opened in 1936 and was a pilot training field during WWII. The airfield today, is a lively place with two tarmac runways and a grass strip.

It is home to an active and friendly mix of light aircraft owners and club members, as well as a successful and historic flying club and helicopter flight school.

The facilities are excellent, with a comfortable club house that has wireless internet access, large hangar and sun terrace. There is a busy little cafe yards from the club house and the very popular Aviator Restaurant on site for more upmarket dining in a relaxed atmosphere. Budget accommodation can also be found on site at the SkyLodge and the area has a wealth of Hotels and Guest Houses.

With the fair city of Perth, just a few minutes drive away and Edinburgh and Glasgow both accessible in around an hour, Scone is well placed within the attractive central belt of Scotland.

The airport itself sits in the lush green valley of the River Tay and you will enjoy a wonderful backdrop of distant mountains on your flights as well as unrestricted airspace. The west coast of Scotland and The Highlands proper are within a 30 minute flight of the airport, with the Cairngorm Mountains National Park even less flight time to the North.

For the none flyer, there is plenty to see and do in the area; everything from historic castles to retail therepy, luxury spas and outdoor pursuits. It's a wonderful destination for any kind of holiday.
