What is a Microlight?
A Microlight is an aeroplane which carries no more than two people. Better known as “Ultralights” in other countries, these fascinating aircrafts have developed into fantastic machines, becoming more and more sophisticated as each year passes.
With a flex-wing and a 'trike' unit below, it is just like a small aircraft. They are absolutely great fun to fly and perfectly safe, so waste no time and get one of our Microlight UK flight experiences booked today!
What to Expect from a Microlight Experience
As with any of our fantastic flying experiences, you can expect glorious views and a thrilling feeling of excitement! But, with a Microlight, due to your open cockpit and just one seat between you and the air, it provides a sensational buzz. Hitting speeds between 60 - 100mph, this experience will also fulfill those speed demons as well!
Although you may not have the comfort of being inside a normal aeroplane, the Microlight will give you an entirely unique experience that will not be forgotten. This type of unique gift idea is something a little different – perfect for the person who likes stepping out of their comfort zone.
On the Day
Your Microlight flying experience will be packed with lots of fun activities and things to learn. If you are concerned about being unprepared, then please don’t panic. You will be fully briefed on the principles of flying, how to fly the aircraft and an overview of the controls.
All of this will be taught by fully trained professionals, so there is absolutely no need to worry. After learning all of these skills, you’ll get the opportunity to take to the skies and truly experience the beauty of Microlighting.
Once in the air, you will get a chance to marvel at the stunning views before you take control and try your hand at flying the aircraft. This is often a highlight of the day for most people. Experiencing what it’s like to fly an aeroplane up to 3000 feet in the air, and steer your way through the skies is a thrill like no other.
Microlight flying experiences make for a fantastic day out and this unique activity is guaranteed to provide excitement for everyone involved.
