Meet the Ikarus C4 and once you fly in it, we're sure you will agree that a fixed wing microlight is definitely an aerial sensation unlike any other. Following a detailed pre-flight briefing, hop into the microlight with an experienced instructor to get ready for take-off. Once in the air, admire sensational aerial views from the cockpit whilst the pilot effortlessly navigates the craft through the clouds. During the flight (under the guidance of the instructor), take over the controls to experience the unrivalled thrill of light aviation first-hand. This flying experience is inclusive of a one day club membership and the flying time can count towards a microlight Private Pilot's licence.
