Product review: Microlight lesson by , 17 Jan 16 5/5 Excellent "Very easy, suitable dates.Sat Nav took me straight there. Toilets very clean, cafe a bit limited but lovely bacon cob. Excellent helpfull staff, very knowledgable and made me feel safe. The briefing was thorough and gave me confidence in the pilot. This experience was fantastic! I would recommend it to anyone, and want to do it again! Lots of photo opportunities; and we also took the opportunity to hang around the airfield and watch the airoplanes for a time. "

Once airborne at a safe height,you will have the opportunity to take control of the aircraft and fly yourself.
The sensation of flight in a microlight is quite unlike anything else you will ever experience.It is probably the nearest thing to what the earliest days of flying must have been like; slow flight at relatively low altitudes in an open cockpit where you're almost completely exposed to the elements - the view from the cockpit is unbeliev
