A 60 minute fixed wing microlight flight in Northamptonshire
Enjoy amazing birds-eye views of the local countryside
Take over the microlight's controls during the flight
The open cockpit microlight is either a P&M Quantum or a GT450
Flying in a microlight is a real thrill - and the views are outstanding. Climb into the closed cockpit of a dual-controlled fixed wing microlight with a CAA approved instructor and get ready for a unique flying experience. Soar to sensational heights, sit back and soak in birds-eye views of Northamptonshire as the instructor shows you just what this three axis Cosmik Aviation Eurostar microlight can do. The exhilarating adventure kicks off with a detailed briefing, introduction to the microlight and, once you're in air, there's even a chance to take charge of the controls to find out just what it's like to be a real microlight pilot - a thrill which is sure to be remembered for years to come. Will you catch the flying bug?
Tuesday - Sunday throughout the year, excluding the Christmas and New Year period.
Minimum age is 16. Maximum weight is 14 stone. Participants must be reasonably fit and able to climb in and out of the microlight. Anyone who suffers from an illness which can cause incapacitation or blackout cannot fly.
Microlighting is extremely weather dependent. Fliers must call the venue before setting out to confirm the experience is able to go ahead as booked.
Expect to be at the venue for up to an hour and a half including a briefing and 60 minutes of microlight flying time.
