Microlight Flying in Nottinghamshire
Based on the frame of a basic hang glider, the microlight is nimble, lightweight and provides a flying experience like no other. Following a flight safety briefing, head to the skies in a dual-controlled flex wing microlight with a fully qualified instructor and enjoy sensational bird's-eye views of the scenic Nottinghamshire countryside. During the flight, the instructor may even hand over the craft's controls so you can experience the microlight's surprising speed and adept manoeuvrability first-hand. For those who catch the bug, this experience can count towards flying time for a microlight Private Pilot's Licence.
