YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 50 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.)
On arrival you will receive a warm welcome from your instructor at the club. You will then have a short pre flight briefing, over a cup of tea or coffee, with your instructor.
As well as ansering any questions that you may have you will be told the basic principles of flight and maybe discuss where you would like to fly. There is little restricted airspace around the airfield so subject to time allowing you could perhaps fly over your own home or somewhere you know well and get a totally different perspective on it.
Then it is out to the aircraft to see what microlight flying is all about.
Shobden is a busy airfield with lots of activity at weekends - gliders; helicopters and GA.
There is also a good cafe/restaurant and a viewing area for spectators so any guests can sit and watch the goings on.
At the end you will be presented with a Certificate of Flight as a momento of your day.
This is a high wing microlight so you will get good views of the ground as you fly and getting in is much like getting in a car.
Minimum age 14.
Maximum weight 100KG.
Other microlights available.

No problem what so ever getting date. Slightly difficult to find contact as the gate to the office had 'Private No Admittance' on it! Toilets and catering facilities excellent. My pilot instructor was friendly and extremely knowledgeable and his micro light excellent. I felt extremely confident about all safety aspects and all my questions answered.I loved the experience and certainly would do it again and would recomment it to a friend. I did not take my camera as I felt I would need all my concentration on flying.
Overall rating: Excellent
