£117.50 inc VAT

Microlight trial lesson
30 minute Microlight Trial Flight
Experience the truly amazing sensation of flight in one of these tiny, yet incredibly robust, flying machines.

This experience will last a total of approx. 45 minutes, with approx. 30 minutes spent in the air. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)

Wanting more than one voucher? It's a pain unless you call 0208 133 9327 - I can do all the work AND give you a discount!! (Please note: your product code is 36433).


What's included

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.


Special Conditions

Minimum age 9.
No maximum age.
Maximum weight approximately 14stone 2lb (90KG)
People with physical disabilities can also fly, depending on the nature of the disability and providing they are able - with the help of a relative or carer where necessary - to be seated comfortably and securely in the aircraft. Check with us if you're not sure.
Please note that flight times are calculated from engine start to engine stop, so they include engine warm-up, pre-takeoff checks and taxying to and from the runway.
If weather conditions are not conducive to flying, we'll simply re-book your flight.
Our trial flights take place on Saturdays and Sundays from 10.30 am till sunset
