For an aerial adventure like no other, this microlight flying experience in Darlington is sure to deliver. Meet a seasoned microlight flying instructor for a briefing before getting kitted out and meeting your zippy, GPS equipped Ikarus C42 Bravo to get ready for take-off. Hop aboard the Ikarus and head to the skies for a flying experience that you will remember for years to come. Soak in incredible panoramic views of County Durham from the enclosed cockpit as your pilot takes the microlight for a spin through the clouds. During the flight, take over the reins to experience the amazing capabilities of the Ikarus first-hand.
