YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 6 hours, with approx. 3 hours 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.)
Your chance to be introduced to the world of microlight flying!
This is designed as an in depth introduction to microlighting for those who may wish to take up the sport.
If you have not flown before, then on arrival for the first lesson you will receive a full 30 minute briefing on the effects of controls on the aircraft, its main characteristics and have the basic principles of flight explained to you. You will also look at the local weather forecast for the day. You will then go with the pilot for a guided tour of the aircraft, including pre flight safety inspection; all really interesting stuff even before you've taken to the air!
Package includes: a pre flight safety briefing, use of flight suit, headset, helmet and gloves.
You will be flown by an experienced pilot who lives and loves flying. It will feel like you are in another world as you see Bedfordshire from this unique and amazing perspective.
Each hour of flight will start with a pre flight briefing: the first will include being shown round the microlight aircraft.
Once securely strapped in, the instructor will handle the take off and climb. Once settled down in level flight, your pilot will demonstrate a few gentle turns and you may be given the opportunity to try for yourself.
You may not believe us now, but you will find it is really quite easy (yet still totally thrilling and addictive!) to actually fly the aircraft yourself.
Package includes a log book to log these first important flights which will count towards your licence.
This experience is pure magic and will really get you started towards your goal of flying!
