This extended flight in a fixed wing microlight is the perfect experience for those who love having their head in the clouds. Microlighting is a real thrill and an amazing way to see the beautiful sights of the surrounding Hull area. Upon arrival, receive a pre-flight briefing on safety, then put on a flying suit and get familiarised with the controls. Once in the air, take in the breathtaking views of the east coast and see things from a different perspective. During this 60 minute flight, you might even get to take control of the craft and get some flying experience.

Numbers on the Day
The briefing might be shared, but the flight is held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified pilot.
Spectators are welcome to watch you take off and land, dont let them forget to bring a camera or pair of binoculars. They can relax in the cafe and viewing area on the airfield. Sorry, dogs are not permitted at airfields.
These microlights have open cockpits, so wrap up warm. We recommend long trousers, closed in shoes, socks and long sleeve jumpers. Sunglasses are recommended all year round.
Flying time can count towards a Private Pilot's Licence for microlighting, for which 15 hours of dual control and 10 hours solo flying is required. Please be aware that this is quite a high adrenaline experience, not for the faint hearted.
