Flex Wing Microlighting in Nottinghamshire
Get a unique flying experience with a microlight flight and take to the skies in a lightweight frame based on a basic hang glider. The experience begins with a safety briefing, then take off with a qualified instructor and enjoy the spectacular views of the Nottinghamshire countryside from the dual controlled, flex wing microlight. The instructor might even hand over the controls during the flight so you can see the speed and manoeuvrability of the aircraft. For anyone who wants to fly again, the flight can count as flying time towards a microlight Private Pilot's Licence.
