Fetlar air field is an airfield on the island of Sketlar in Shetland in Scotland
The airfield was built in 1972 in an attempt to break the isolation of the Shetlands. There used to be a scheduled service such as flown to the other remote airfields using Britten-Norman Islanders. The service used to be to Tingwall on Shetland mainland. It was terminated however, and now the airfield is only used for emergency training. The airfield only has a runway, there are no other facilities.

Appearantly Fetlar airfield did not see much use recently, judging from this photo taken in September 2011.
