The aerodrome was constructed by the Royal Engineers in 1972 and Loganair operated a daily service to Glasgow until 1988. Currently the aerodrome is maintained and operated by the Highland Council, TEC Services. Although this aerodrome is unlicensed and unmanned, the facility is open 24/7 and all suitable aircraft and organisations are welcome. The council will consider using the aerodrome to host any reasonable non air related events; in the past such events have included music festivals, big budget film locations, TV adverts, for the large scale storage of wind farm components, military use and is currently home to The Skye Flying Club.

The Skye Flying Club currently comprises three microlight aircraft.  The club is planning to grow and NPPL training with Air Experience flights are due to start next year.
