Experience flight like never before, as you glide through the clouds in a stunning microlight aircraft. These ingeniously designed aeroplanes appear like a scary prospect; however, they are safe, sturdy and facilitate an exhilarating aerial experience. No other aircraft gives the level of freedom and manoeuvrability that these machines allow. When you arrive at one of the airfields available nationwide, your expert pilot will greet you and go through the safety procedures with you, as well as giving you an introduction to the microlight itself, getting you used to the cockpit and controls. Once strapped in, it’s then up, up and away, as your pilot expertly takes off and demonstrates the capabilities of the aircraft. Should you feel confident you may even get the chance to take control! The exact model and type of microlight will vary at different locations; however this information can be retrieved when you call your selected airfield to book.

ultimate buzz

5 out of 5 10 September 2015
Location: north east essex Age: 55-64 Bought For Son Occasion: Father's Day
Great fun at the Sutton Gault airfield.Nothing rushed and everything explained before take off and whilst in the air. Plenty of hands on, not just sitting being flown around and full info as to the region we were flying over. Very exiting yet felt totally in safe hands. Dave Groom the instructor didn't seem in any hurry to get me done and finished which made a nice change as you can sometimes feel you are just another job to get crossed off the list. Definitely not just a 60 minute experience!

A memorable experience and Barry was extremely knowledgeable as the pilot talking through both the technical aspects of the microlight to the landmarks we flew across. A must do experience and one I would most definitely recommend.

Not what I expected

2 out of 5 31 August 2014
Location: Birmingham Age: 18-24 Bought For Partner Occasion: Christmas
I had this gift brought to me by my boyfriend for Christmas! I had been wanting to fly a micro light for some time and I was extremely excited! When we arrived, I couldn't see anything like the micro light that the pictures shows that I was expecting to fly anywhere! When they took me to the micro light I was disappointed to find out it was a small light aircraft and nothing like what I expected or the picture shows! This was not what I wanted to fly! I did enjoy the experience as I was able to take controls of the micro light for the whole journey including take off and landing so the experience in that micro light was amazing if that's what your looking for however please be aware that it is not the micro light advertised.
What would you improve for next time? Details and pictures of the micro light you will be flying at each location.

Hi, Thank you for submitting your review. I am really pleased to hear that you enjoyed your experience and were able to take control of the Microlight. We do make every effort to ensure that all images used and descriptions are as accurate as possible. When we have a product that has several different locations included as part of it, some of the locations may offer slightly different Microlights and as such we are not able to display all of them on the site. I have passed your comments across to the relevant teams so that we can ensure that the correct images for this experience are being used. If any amendments do need to be made, please be assured these will be done as quickly as possible. Thanks once again for taking the time to let us have your feedback as we really do appreciate it.

60 minutes of genuine pleasure

Sad Muppet
Location: Wales Age: 45-54 Bought For Mum Occasion: Birthday
From the relaxed informality of the initial briefing, to the exhilaration of being up with the birds this was a truly brilliant gift. The pilot had the right mix of knowledge & experience, but his enthusiasm & passion for flying shone through. The technical guidance wasn't too complicated, but all my questions were answered and the finer points of navigation & flying made clear. I was also impressed by the knowledge of local history, e.g. old Victorian forts along the banks of the Thames and the rotting hulls of old German U-boats in the mud, and also the geography of the Medway Valley where we flew. I would definitely recommend this to anyone. It's not physically demanding, but it is snug so the weight limits are for a good reason. I would definitely want to do this again.
What would you improve for next time? The provision of a 'head-camera' or one mounted on the microlight to record the flight would be a great addition, and could also raise extra revenue.

Christmas gift

Location: Telford Age: 55-64 Bought For Wife Occasion: Christmas
Excellent. My wife, Chris, bought me a micro-lite flight as a Christmas present as I'd been thinking of taking lessons. I took the lesson at Shobden with Swift Flight and found it very professional. Steve, the instructor, conducted a thorough brief and the flight was carried out in near perfect conditions. Steve allowed me to take control, under his monitoring, and it was very enjoyable, intense but enjoyable. I would definately recommend it for anybody interested in flying , just for the experience. Thanks to Steve and, of course to Chris xx

microlite magic

5 out of 5 23 May 2014
Location: west yorks Age: 55-64 Bought For Partner Occasion: Birthday
Everything about the experience was first class. The arrangements with the flying club (Baxby) were easy to make, the 'leader' (Dave) was approachable, pleasant and very professional. The flight itself lasted the full hour but time seemed to fly by (no pun intended) as we talked about almost every topic under the sun. Heartily recommended for anyone who has a head for heights (if you haven't then definitely give it a miss).
What would you improve for next time? Everything was pretty good

My Hubby's adventure in the air

5 out of 5 08 March 2013
Location: Burtle, Somerset Age: 35-44 Bought For Myself Occasion: Birthday
I surprised my husband with this gift voucher for his birthday but had already booked the appointment as well, giving him no reason to delay. As he loves to fly and is an aerospace engineer I knew he would have no worries - but little did I know he had a bit of fear being in this microflight, but that soon changed as he was given the command for the entire flight and absolutely loved it. Steve, the instructor, was great to explain everything and even quicker to get my hubby in the air and having the full experience. It was well worth the fee and so easy to make the arrangements. This was a great intro into the world of microflight"ing" and gave my husband the experience he was looking for to see if his interest might go further than a joy ride. Another tick off the bucket list and well worth giving it a go yourself if you're considering. Have fun....we both did!
