Microlighting perfectly captures the spirit of early aviation - pioneering, thrilling and a touch eccentric. These quirky little aircraft, with their panoramic views from the cockpit, are ideal for short trips over the countryside. This is a great way to fly on a fine summer's day! Our instructors will give you a thorough briefing and then take you on a trial flying lesson. We are sure you will end up as enthusiastic as they are! You will be given a detailed briefing from your instructor, which includes how to use dual controls, how to enter the aircraft and pre-take off checks. You then take to the skies, climbing to up to 1500 feet above ground level in a flexwing (open cockpit) or fixed wing (closed cockpit) aircraft . The instructor will demonstrate the controls and then, if the instructor is happy, the controls will be passed to you. Happy flying!
