Take to the sky and experience a thrilling aerial adventure like never before with an incredible 20 to 30 Minute Microlight Flight.
Microlighting perfectly captures the spirit of early aviation - pioneering, thrilling and a touch eccentric. These quirky little aircrafts, with their panoramic views from the cockpit, are ideal for short trips over the countryside. Flying a microlight is the perfect treat on a fine summer's day.
To start the day you will be given a detailed safety briefing from your instructor, which includes how to use the microlight's dual controls, how to enter the microlight safely and all pre-take off checks. You then take to the sky, climbing up to 1,500 feet above ground level in a flex-wing (open cockpit) or fixed wing (closed cockpit - similar to a mini plane) aircraft (please state preference at time of booking). The instructor will demonstrate the controls and then, if the instructor is happy, control of the microlight will be passed to you. Your total experience will last for approximately 1 hour, with 20 to 30 minutes in the microlight.
*Please note, at the Wiltshire location you will fly in a fixed-wing aircraft.
This experience is available on selected Monday to Sunday dates, throughout the year. However April to September are the recommended flying months.
Your total experience will last for approximately 1 hour, with 20 to 30 minutes in the microlight.
It will be just you and the pilot.
You're welcome to bring along family and friends to watch your flight.

What did you get up to?
I have never been scared or nervous when flying in a passenger plane but this was definitely a shock to the system! I arrived at the airfield for midday and the weather was sunny but quite windy, the pilot was there waiting for me and we quickly went to the aircraft to perform the pre-flight checks. The pilot was very informative and this experience was very hands on as I performed most of the checks, these included starting the engine and contacting the radio control tower to get clearance for take-off. Once we were ready the pilot took off, from this point he let me take control of the microlight until landing, he was very calm and explained what each of the controls did, and he even pointed out the local landmarks we were passing. Overall a very nerve-racking experience but something I would definitely do again!
What did you enjoy the most?
Building up the courage to take controls and the feeling of achievement when I finally did!
Don’t look down!
