Your recipient will take to the skies with an experienced pilot for this flight of a lifetime. This is the perfect opportunity to feel the exhilarating freedom offered by these superbly maneuverable machines. With the design of a hang-glider or small aeroplane, these amazing machines might look scary but they have become a stable, safe and recognised form of travel. An amazing chance to soar like a bird for a full 60 minute flight! Your instructor might even let you take the controls if they feel you are up to it!
Upon arrival at the aerodrome your recipient will be given a briefing on the principles of microlight flying. From there they are taken to the microlight for a general familiarisation of the layout and a rundown of the controls. After this it's up, up and away for a 60 minute flight of a lifetime! If the instructor feels confident that his new student is ready, they will even be able to take the controls and get the thrill of piloting the aircraft. Facilities and microlights will vary between locations and the images used here are a guide only.

Christmas gift 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 23 June 2014
microlite magic 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). 23 May 2014
My Hubby's adventure in the air 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! 08 March 2013
The feeling of soaring through the skies open to the elements on a microlight is indescribable! What a buzz man! I even got to do some steering for part of it when the wind died down so it was like my own private flying lesson! 16 November 2010
