A safety briefing with a fully qualified instructor
Take to the skies in the lightweight frame
Time in the air can count towards a microlight PPL
See the world from a birds-eye view in a lightweight microlight. This extended flight is an exhilarating experience and a great gift for those who have their head in the clouds. After a thorough safety briefing from an experienced instructor, board the aircraft and take towards the sky in the dual controlled, flex wing microlight. The light frame, based on that of a hang glider, is capable of impressive speed and manoeuvrability and the instructor might even let you take the controls so it can be experienced first-hand. For any budding pilots, the flying time can count towards a microlight Private Pilot's Licence.

Numbers on the Day
The briefing might be shared, but the flight will be held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified microlight flight instructor.
Spectators are welcome to come along and watch take off and land. A camera or a pair of binoculars will come in handy.
Most microlights have open cockpits, so wrap up warm. Wear sensible shoes (no heels) and gloves. Sunglasses are recommended all year round.
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. Please be aware that this is quite a high adrenaline experience, not for the faint hearted.
