60 Minute Fixed Wing Microlight Flight
Named after its slight size and low take-off-weight limit (450kg), the Fixed-Wing Microlight aeroplane is an agile aircraft, ideal for both leisure flights and long distances. Grasp the opportunity to take flight in one of these dainty models, with this exciting flying experience in Bath. Starting off with a safety briefing with an experienced pilot, participants are shown the ropes, before hopping into the driving seat for a sixty minute flight. Learn how to steer and control the plane with one-to-one guidance from an experienced instructor, while taking in the breath-taking views of Somerset from up high.
