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 a fantastic machine, becoming more and more sophisticated. 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!
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 a seat between you and the air, it gives a sensational thrill. Although not having the comfort of being inside a normal aeroplane, the Microlight will give you an experience to remember, something a bit different to the ordinary flying experience – perfect for the person who likes stepping out of their comfort zone.
On the Day
Your Microlight flying experience is packed with plenty to learn and do. If you feel like you will be unprepared for the fascinating day ahead, then think again, as you will be fully briefed on the Microlight, including principles of flying, familiarisation of flying the aircraft and an overview of the controls – you will be taught by fully trained professionals so you will be in safe hands and be taught everything you need to know.
Once you have been taught about the aircraft, prepare to take to the skies in a thrilling flying experience. Have the chance to take the controls yourself and feel like a real pilot.
