£89.99 inc. VAT

Microlight trial lesson
Microlight Flying Lesson (Flex Wing)
30 minute trial Lesson in a Microlight.
Short flight briefing after which the student will be allowed to take the controls and actually fly the aircraft!
This is for flying in a weight-shift, but a 3-axis might be possible.

This experience will last a total of approx. 60 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.)

For later dates, schedules will not yet be available and so you should have a wide selection of dates to choose from when you come to book.

What's included

There are two types of Microlight aircraft - Weight shift and 3-axis - and this experience is for a weight shift - you might be able to use a 3-axis, ask when booking.

Microlight aircraft are an increasingly popular and affordable way to enjoy light aviation, and our Microlight Trial Lesson allows you to experience the thrill of flying: it 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 can be 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.
