Pilot Scotland is a website that touches our hearts on two levels... travel to Scotland and airplanes... We especially like old planes, but anything that flies will do... even birds!

If you've ever found us at Antique-Airplanes.com, you'll know that we're always looking for fun planes to see... and to fly in if we can. When we were looking around this website, it reminded us of a trip we took a few years ago.

We were planning a trip to England and Scotland. We're great tourists and we love to see all the usual tourist site, but we're always looking for more... so Mark was doing research on airplanes and air shows. We even planned the date of that trip because Mark had read about an even at the Coventry Airport. This was way back in 2000.

It wasn't an air show, but a flying day.... and the real hook forgetting us to Coventry was the chance to fly in a Scottish Aviation Twin Pioneer.

Part of Mark's heritage is Scottish, so when he read about that, he couldn't resist... He called England from California and made a reservation... and that's something we don't do too often! Then we planned the rest of our visit around that. Nothing wrong with planning travel around your hobbies... right?!?

At coventry, there was a small group of people going for flights that day... as I remember, they took the "Twin Pin" up two or three times, so we got to see her fly as well as fly IN her. In addition to our flights, we were given a guided tour of all the restoration buildings and got to see their other planes close up. What a treat! Check out our photos from inside and out of the Twin Pioneer.

The chance to see antique airplanes fly is always a draw, and as luck would have it, the Shuttleworth Collection at Old Warden was also having a flying day where they pull many of their old airplanes out of the hangars and fly them... Providing the grass isn't too soft (no paved runway here!) and the wind doesn't get too strong. Talk about antique airplanes!

If you want to see where we've explored in the world... for planes or birds or anything else, we have a website for travel tips MouseToursTravels.com. For a Scottish twist check out the story about when we went to find "Our" Scottish Castle on Loch Fyne.

And since we're assuming you love aviation like we do, take a look at Antique-Airplanes.com. You can add your airplane story there too just like we did here.

Happy flying! Judy and Mark

Mark and Judy enjoyed flight in a Scottish Aviation in Twin Pin. You told the whole story of that flight which is really interesting for me. I think Pilot is a great job where risk and enjoy both available at the same time. This website have good information about Scotland Pilots which other pilots like to read it.

If you would like a link ASK.
by: Jim

I will be happy to share links with other websites provided they have some relevance in exchange for a link back. Fair is fair after all and if you ask me, I can make your link more relevant than it would be if you simply steal one.

Cheers,

Jim.

Living history.

I'm off to google flights like this! The twin pioneer was built at Prestwick airport when we still had a manufacturing industry. I love these old machines especially if they still do what they were built to do.

Brilliant. Thanks.

Jim.
