POWERFUL MEGA MILLION LOTTERY SPELL YOU PAY AFTER WIN +27738304812 It's hard to meet a person who's never dreamed of winning the lottery. Many people buy lottery tickets ,but their dreams never comes true, Perhaps, they just don't know a certain system, are unlucky or choose the wrung numbers.

From the Otter pilot

Pilot notes: Find airport info on http://www.nats-uk.ead-it.com airport information

For Tidal info, consult the tables for "Barra North Bay". Generally speaking when the tide is below 3.0 meter the runways are usable. The first to be flooded is runway 29, then 33, lastly 25.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/coast_and_sea/tide_tables/7/314

There are normally two scheduled flights a day with a turn-around time of 20-30 minutes. The twin otters will receive priority so plan a landing and departure at other times. Schedules are at irregular, but published times.

It is advisable to phone Barra airport authority before departure.

IT'S TIDAL

The only airport in the world where you need to consult tide tables before making your flight plan - the runways are only usable at low tide.

Intro

Learned to fly there in mid 70s. First to use first tar runway,m which we build with stones from the former railway line. Once you have soloed there no airfield will appear daunting, since the runmway is the worlds narrowest aircraft deck, which seldom points into wind. Still a great place to fly/soar/tour, all year round. Got my Gold height in Jnauary, Diamond in June, it really is all year soaring, but just a touch cool in winter

Helicopter tours

The airport currently seems to be a base for helicopter tours:

A field with lots of character

This is a former RAF base from world war II which is the only one still using the original buildings. The FBO, Far North Aviation, is in the original tower. You feel very much into "Battle of Britain" here. Great service, very friendly, no hassles with the paperwork. A very nice place to land after or before crossing the pond. The approach is a LOC DME and the weather can be low, but even though it's called the Highlands there is nothing solid to hit near the airport. The local scotch (Old Pulteney) is excellent, as is the beer (the Real Mackay).
