A 60 minute flex wing microlight flight in Northamptonshire
Enjoy stunning birds-eye views of the local countryside
Take over the microlight's controls during the flight
The closed cockpit microlight used is the Cosmik Aviation Eurostar
Flying in a microlight is an incredible rush - and the views are second to none. Climb into the cockpit of a dual-controlled flex wing microlight with a CAA approved instructor and get ready for the flying experience of a lifetime. Soar to sensational heights and feel the rush of wind from the open cockpit as the instructor shows you just what the weightshift machine can do. This exhilarating adventure begins with a detailed briefing which includes an introduction to the microlight. Then once you're in the sky, there's even a chance to take charge of the controls to find out exactly what it's like to be a real life microlight pilot - a buzz that has to be experienced to be believed. 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.
