Description

Take to the sky and experience a thrilling aerial adventure like never before with an incredible 20 to 30 Minute Microlight Flight.

Microlighting perfectly captures the spirit of early aviation - pioneering, thrilling and a touch eccentric. These quirky little aircrafts, with their panoramic views from the cockpit, are ideal for short trips over the countryside. Flying a microlight is the perfect treat on a fine summer's day.

To start the day you will be given a detailed safety briefing from your instructor, which includes how to use the microlight's dual controls, how to enter the microlight safely and all pre-take off checks. You then take to the sky, climbing up to 1,500 feet above ground level in a flex-wing (open cockpit) or fixed wing (closed cockpit - similar to a mini plane) aircraft (please state preference at time of booking). The instructor will demonstrate the controls and then, if the instructor is happy, control of the microlight will be passed to you. Your total experience will last for approximately 1 hour, with 20 to 30 minutes in the microlight.


*Please note, at the Wiltshire location you will fly in a fixed-wing aircraft.

Well looked after and enjoyable.

The flight was a surprise birthday gift and very enjoyable, if short. Luckily the weather held for the duration. The airfield had been chosen to be closest to where we live and for the scenery; I was asked what I'd like to see, and if we'd had longer could have flown over our house. We were welcomed from the moment we left the car, photos were encouraged and time given to take those, as well as refreshments in the office. The flight was enjoyable and the pilot experienced and friendly. I was 'treated' to a low swoop over the airfield on return, which went right over the heads of my waiting family, which was a nice thing to do to include them in the experience! They said the other pilots were friendly and showed them around some of the vehicles in hangars whilst they waited. I would do it again there, as it was also a pilot school and so very experienced with many various planes, but for longer duration, perhaps an hour.
