Product review: Here we go... by , 13 Jun 16 5/5 Excellent "It was very easy, I rang the number on the gift voucher to arrange the date unfortunately the flight was postponed twice due to adverse weather conditions but it was not a problem as I had the instructors phone number and he was very easily contactable Old Sarum airfield was very easy to find as I only live 10 miles drive away and the instructor had given me precise instructions where to meet him I didn't experience the catering but other facilities were more than adequate. Instructor was very friendly and knowledgeable it was my first flight and he was very reassuring especially bearing in mind I'm not good with heights. I was given detailed safety briefing and I felt I could not have been in more capable hands I was told the path we would take the time we were likely to take and the effects of the weather conditions. Having only ever flown four times before on commercial airlines this was quite an experience I really enjoy the flight and intend to book another ASAP. I did take a few photos but not very good ones hopefully the next batch will be better. As the voucher was bought for me as a gift the only contact I had was when booking the initial date "

What's included

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 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.
