Perth Airport is situated just 3 miles to the North East of Perth, just off the A94 heading towards Coupar Angus. The airport entrance is on the left and is well signposted. Once you turn into the airport, follow up the avenue until you arrive at the mini roundabout. Parking is available beyond the roundabout in the main car park in front of the control tower. Then on foot, head back to the mini roundabout and turn left and follow the road behind the maintenance hanger passing ACS Aviation on your left, turn left down the narrow lane between ACS and the Cafe, this now opens out into another private parking area, and the Scottish Aero Club buildings which are well signposted are too your right. Once in the building follow the signs or ask for directions to the Gyrocopter Experience.
