20 Minute Fixed Wing Microlight Flight
Experience the exhilaration of flight, with this unique opportunity to take the helm of a fixed-wing microlight aeroplane. Commence with a safety briefing hosted by one of the trained pilots, before hopping aboard a Cyclone AX2000. Soaring through the airwaves above Bath, enjoy a twenty minute ride, with expert one-to-one tuition on how to steer and control the plane. A microlight is a small aircraft, designed to carry up to two people and a maximum take-off weight of 450kg. Also known as a three-axis microlight, fixed-wing models are different to flexwing aircraft due to their conventional stick and rudder controls. With cruise speeds of over 100mph, it's the perfect way to take in the aerial views of Bath.
