On arrival you will receive a warm welcome from your instructor at the club. You will then have a short pre flight briefing, over a cup of tea or coffee, with your instructor.
As well as ansering any questions that you may have you will be told the basic principles of flight and maybe discuss where you would like to fly. There is little restricted airspace around the airfield so subject to time allowing you could perhaps fly over your own home or somewhere you know well and get a totally different perspective on it.
Then it is out to the aircraft to see what microlight flying is all about.
Shobden is a busy airfield with lots of activity at weekends - gliders; helicopters and GA.
There is also a good cafe/restaurant and a viewing area for spectators so any guests can sit and watch the goings on.
At the end you will be presented with a Certificate of Flight as a momento of your day.
This is a high wing microlight so you will get good views of the ground as you fly and getting in is much like getting in a car.
