Oban Air Sports was founded on a dream of the proprietor, Kevin MacCuish. Kevin has been flying a variety of aircraft from the tender age of 12. Starting out on post war era sailplanes, Kevin made rapid progress and was assessed ready for solo flight at the age of 14. However, due to UK legislation he had to wait until his 16th Birthday before achieving this significant achievement.
Kevin is not only passionate about Microlight aircraft, he also flies a wide variety including Aeroplanes, Gliders, Paragliders, Paramotors, Motor Gliders, and Helicopters. Kevin is yet to fly any type of aircraft he doesn’t like. His most recent professional flying job was in Zambia, flying tourists over the mighty Victoria Falls - an experience he is unlikely to forget! Kevin is a dedicated aviator and patient instructor who believes that flying should not be considered any more difficult than driving a car.
Kevin thoroughly enjoys the satisfaction and fulfilment instructing gives him and relishes any flying challenge put his way. Under Kevin’s tutelage we can assure that you are in safe and experienced hands. We hope our flying school can encourage the next generation of pilots and instructors to join this rapidly expanding sport. Kevin welcomes all to try this sport, young and old, male and female. With Oban Air Sports and our geographical location, you are guaranteed a most pleasant flight.
