Extended Microlighting in Devon
Take to the skies in a speedy, feather light microlight for a sensational aerial experience. Start off with a concise briefing, before stepping into a dual-controlled microlight and ascending to the skies. This fixed wing microlight is akin to a conventional light aircraft, ensuring safety at altitude. Once airborne, enjoy the incredible velocity and agility of the nippy craft and take over the controls with an instructor offering tips and guidance every step of the way. This particular flight can count towards a Private Pilot Licence for anyone who wishes to take their flying further.
