Experience the most unique aerobatic sport around by taking to the skies in a microlight
This is a great introduction to microlighting and counts towards total flying hours should you decide to pursue this marvellous hobby. Fly serenely above the picturesque Wiltshire countryside, taking in the breathtaking views and the famous landmarks from a birds-eye view. The instructors have hundreds of hours experience and are keen to pass on their flying knowledge. The school is regulated by the CAA and BMAA, so you can be sure of a safe and memorable experience.
Upon arrival at the airfield you will be introduced to your flight instructor who will run a briefing session where you'll learn about the aircraft and have the opportunity to ask any questions. Take a seat in the cockpit and get comfortable - all equipment will be provided on the day. You'll be wearing a headset so that you can talk over the intercom - a helmet may be necessary depending on the microlight you choose to fly. The instructor will taxi the aircraft to the runway and run through the controls for your benefit. Once airborne, the control will be passed to you - you are free to fly the aircraft for as long as you want (within the lesson time). The instructor will land and then its off for a well deserved cup of tea.
