Extended Microlight Flight
Add to Basket
If you have always wanted to give flying a try then there is no better way to get started than with a qualified instructor in a fabulous Microlight aircraft. Microlighting is a type of flying that has progressed a great deal over the past 20 years and has now emerged as one of the safest and most economical ways to fly. Impressively light and simple to fly, you can sit back and enjoy the ride.
Take in the panoramic scenery of your chosen location and after your instructor has run through a few demonstrations, perhaps you can give the flying a go yourself? Many clubs now use fixed wing Microlights that offer the comfort of a regular training aircraft, whilst others still use aircrafts with the flexible wing, open cockpit style, adding that classic touch to your aerial experience. Whichever you end up in, you are sure to feel the delight of this remarkable aircraft.

What happens on the day?
The lesson starts with an in depth briefing on all aspects of Microlight flying from your instructor. You will get to grips with the plane and talk through its main features. The basic principles of flight will be explained and you’ll discuss any safety information.
You will then take to the air for this extraordinary experience. So relax and take in the sights of your chosen location, whilst your instructor demonstrates a few turns and if you’re feeling brave enough - give it a go yourself for a more ‘hands-on’ experience. This will depend on the location you choose and the weather conditions of the day.
