60 Minute Microlight Flight
In a nutshell
- Trial flying lesson with a qualified instructor.
- Opportunity to take over controls once airborne.
- Panoramic views from the cockpit
Take to the sky and experience a thrilling aerial adventure like never before with an incredible 60 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.
Selected Monday to Sunday dates (depending on location), throughout the year.
Your total experience will last for approximately 1½ hours, with 60 minutes in the microlight.
It'll be just you and the pilot.
