Overview

Things couldn't be more different than a plane when flying in a microlight. In fact a trip on one of these nippy, lightweight little flying machines is about as close as it gets to being a bird. Begin the session with a health and safety briefing from an experienced pilot, before boarding a dual-controlled 'flex wing' microlight, which is based on the frame of a hang glider. Once airborne, experience the incredible handling and zippy speed of this lightweight craft whilst enjoying breathtaking bird's-eye views. During the flight, take control of the microlight, with an instructor on hand throughout to offer advice and encouragement. This particular flight can also count towards a microlight Private Pilot's Licence.

In a Nutshell
  • Take to the skies in a zippy microlight
  • Expert tuition from a qualified instructor
  • Take control of the craft (at the pilot's discretion)
  • Flying time can contribute towards a Private Pilot's Licence for microlights
Key Info
  • Availability Description
    Tuesday - Sunday afternoons (usually between 12 - 3pm) throughout the main flying season from May to mid-September. Week night flights can take off up to 7.30pm in summer.
  • Participant Guidelines
    Maximum weight is 16 and a half stone and minimum age is 16. Under 18s must be accompanied by a parent or guardian who'll be required to sign a disclaimer.
  • Weather
    Weather dependency means you can be cancelled at very short notice so you MUST call for confirmation between 9 - 10am on the morning of the flight. Any cancellations are rebooked.
  • Duration
    Please allow up to an hour at the venue. As a guide, the flight can last for anywhere between 15 and 25 minutes, depending on thermals and wind.
  • Numbers on the Day
    The briefing might be shared, but the flight is held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified pilot.
  • Dress Code
    These microlights have open cockpits, so wrap up warm. We recommend long trousers, closed in shoes, socks and long sleeve jumpers. Bring gloves in winter and sunblock and a hat in summer. Sunglasses are recommended all year round.
  • Other Info
    Flying time can count towards a microlight Private Pilot's Licence, for which 15 hours of dual control and 10 hours solo flying is needed to qualify.
