About the experience

Get to know one of the lightest ways to enjoying a flying experience, with this 30 Minute Flight in a Microlight, including Briefing, available at a wide selection of UK airfields with their own microlight clubs, run and approved by the British Microlight Aircraft Association. Your instructor will give you a thorough pre-flight briefing, so you’ve got the full idea of what to expect once you’re up in the air. Once they’ve strapped you in and got you airborne to level flight, then over the duration of your 30 minute flight, you’ll be able to follow their demonstration and attempt some light mid-air turns - and trust us, they’re very simple to pick up, so we’re confident you’ll get the hang of it in no time at all! And with most venues for this experience offering both the traditional flex-wing, open microlights and the more modern fixed wing microlights, you’ll hopefully be able to find what suits you best, whether it’s being open to the elements or flying as a traditional pilot in training would in a normal aircraft.
