Microlighting is freedom! Enjoy the out-of-this-world views as you skim past the clouds, swoop, soar and climb high into the heavens. You will be flying with an experienced pilot in a 3-axis fixed-wing microlight. Microlighting is growing ever more popular, as the craft are small, economical and above all, great fun to fly! This amazing, unique adventure is enhanced by the small dimensions of the craft and your close proximity to the air and your surroundings - infinitely memorable!
Upon arrival you will be briefed on the principles of microlight flying. From there you will be taken to the microlight for a general familiarisation of the aircraft and run-through of the controls. After this it's time to zoom from the airfield into the sky for the 30 minute flight of a lifetime! Once in the air you will have the chance to take controls of the aircraft and so get the thrill of actually piloting a microlight.

20-30 Minute Microlight Flight in Herefordshire
I sent my daughter on this activity day cos she went on an aerobatic flight last year and loved it. Microlights always looked a bit scary to me but my husband convinced me it was safe. She had a ball up there and even took over the cockpit (if that's the right word) at points or so she tells me.
