There are two types of Microlight aircraft - Weight shift and 3-axis. For further details please see
All about Microlights
This experience can be taken in either type - please specify on booking.
Microlight trial lessons are an increasingly popular way to enjoy light aviation.
Our Taster Microlight Trial Lesson allows you to experience the thrill of flying and will even count as the first step towards your Private Pilot's Licence.
The trial lesson is preceded by a short flight briefing with our instructor who will explain all aspects of the flight including the effects of controls and how a microlight flies.
The flexwing microlight has a tandem seating arrangement - your instructor will generally ask you to sit in the P1 seat at the front - don't worry all instructors on these types prefer to sit in the rear seat anyway, it's the norm for them and s/he can oversee you all the time in the air.
3 axis microlight usually have two seats side by side.
The student will then be allowed to take the controls and actually fly the aircraft!
The weather plays an important part in all forms of flying, but Microlights are a little more susceptible to the elements than other forms, so please bear that in mind.
Contrary to popular belief, the wintertime is the best time to fly in the UK, OK it's cold, but we can wrap up against that. The difference is the stability of the air, cold crisp winter days are the best, saying that though, last thing on a summers evening can be just as enjoyable.
A truly fabulous gift for anyone of any age and also a perfect introduction to flying for those who have always wanted to try flying a microlight.
