About the experience

Learn how to fly in Somerset style with this 60 minute microlight experience across the beautiful coastline. Not only will you get the opportunity to learn a new skill but experience a slice of history. Departing from one of the country’s oldest airports, Westonzoyland, you’ll get a place among RAF and USAAF greats as this base was used during World War Two. You’ve only got to close your eyes for a little while to imagine the Hurricanes and Spitfires soaring through the skies overhead. If you’ve never flown before, you’ll be in the best hands with microlight expert Andy Buchan who is a chief flying instructor, examiner and senior inspector with many hours in the sky. With an hour session, you’ll not only be enjoying the fantastic historical landscape that stretches from Glastonbury Tor to the Bristol channel and even Exmoor national park, but you'll be given the opportunity to take the controls. Here, you’ll feel the excitement that comes with piloting a plane with this unique opportunity to learn all about flying from an expert microlight instructor. In no time, you’ll be mastering the tricky skill of straight and level flying as you breeze over the Somerset coastline. If you’ve ever wanted to learn to fly but not known where to start, this microlight experience is the best place to start and you’re guaranteed to catch the flying bug soon after.
