Microlight trial lesson
60 mins Fixed Wing Microlight trial lesson
In your 1 hour trial lesson you will be have the opportunity to fly the aircraft and visit some of the local landmarks, such as Alfred's Tower, Stonehenge and the Fovant Military Badges or even go over your house!

This experience will last a total of approx. 90 minutes, with approx. 1 hour 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.)

What's included

This experience is in a 3 axis microlight. These aircraft have the same stick and rudder control as a normal aircraft, usually having an enclosed cockpit. Like traditional aircraft they have control surfaces on the wings (ailerons) and tail-plane (elevators and rudder) which can be moved in the airflow, to manoeuvre the aircraft in the air. Pilot and passenger usually sit side by side.

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.
Once airborne the student will be allowed to take the controls and actually fly the aircraft!
The weather plays a very 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.
