About the experience

If you’re after a great value way to get introduced to the delights of Microlighting, then this 20 Minute Flight, including Briefing, hosted at a multitude of UK wide venues with clubs which are all approved by the British Microlight Aircraft Association, should tick all the boxes! Weighing less than 450 kg, Microlights are an extremely light and nimble way to take the air, and you’ll be fully shown all the basic principles of flying one before you get airborne. Then the instructor will strap you in and take care of the take off and climb. Then once you’re in level flight, it’s over to you as, following your pilot’s demonstration, you’ll get to try out a few gentle mid-air turns during the course of your 20 minute flight - and it’s surprisingly easier than it looks! And because microlights are available at most clubs, including both the traditional flexible wing, open cockpit style models or the newer fixed wing models, you can either be open to the elements or take flight in the comfort of a regular training aircraft. So with total flexibility and fantastic value, there’s no better place to start your microlighting from!
