Key Information

Reviews

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. 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 sky, climbing to up to 1500 feet above ground level. The instructor will demonstrate the controls and then, if the instructor is happy, the controls will be passed to you.

Please note, at the Wiltshire location you will fly in a fixed-wing aircraft.

When can you go?

Selected Monday to Sunday dates, which vary depending on the venue, throughout the year, but April to September is best.

Fantastic Flight Experience

What a superb experience. Pilot was great. Even got to take the controls. Went for the flex wing as it's open cockpit. Highly recommended. Would love to go again.

Superb Flight

I flew with Paul, a very experienced pilot. After we were airborne he asked if I would like to take the controls - "can a duck swim?" For nearly an hour he taught/showed me how to bank the aircraft, recover from a stall and pilot the craft in a gentle circle. It was a brilliant experience and one I would recommend to anyone.

Well looked after and enjoyable.

The flight was a surprise birthday gift and very enjoyable, if short. Luckily the weather held for the duration. The airfield had been chosen to be closest to where we live and for the scenery; I was asked what I'd like to see, and if we'd had longer could have flown over our house. We were welcomed from the moment we left the car, photos were encouraged and time given to take those, as well as refreshments in the office. The flight was enjoyable and the pilot experienced and friendly. I was 'treated' to a low swoop over the airfield on return, which went right over the heads of my waiting family, which was a nice thing to do to include them in the experience! They said the other pilots were friendly and showed them around some of the vehicles in hangars whilst they waited. I would do it again there, as it was also a pilot school and so very experienced with many various planes, but for longer duration, perhaps an hour.

This was an amazing birthday gift. It was so much fun I was made to feel very welcome and my nerves put at ease from the calm nature of the instructor and experience he clearly had. The pace was easy to find from instructions and address given. Family that came with me to watch were all made very welcome and instructions all very easy to understand. Amazing day and great fun I want to do it again.
