On arrival you we'll discuss the route of your flight and then there will be a short pre-flight briefing on the flight. Then we will fix you up with a flying suit, helmet and intercom headset, and get you securely strapped into the aircraft.
After carrying out full pre-flight safety checks, we'll taxy out onto the runway.
Depending on the flight conditions, if you wish you will get the chance to have a go at flying the aircraft from the back seat, using the student training bars fitted to the control frame.
This trial lesson or 'air experience flight'is actually the first step to getting a licence should you wish to continue. It is Flight Exercise 3 from the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA) Syllabus of Microlight Pilot Training.
Like the earliest pioneers of powered flight, you will experience for yourself the sensation of an open-cockpit flight in a small aircraft.
The microlight flies at around 45-60 mph although the sensation of speed is very different to being in a car or on a bike.
All the equipment you need for your trial flight - flying suit, gloves, helmet and intercom headset - will be provided.
