30 Minute Flex Wing Microlight Flight in Northamptonshire
We really like this Driving Experiences Experience located in Sywell, Northamptonshire.
When it comes to roaming the skies, a microlight flight is as exhilarating as it gets. Climb into a dual-controlled flex wing microlight with a CAA approved instructor and prepare for a special flying thrill. Soar through the sky in an open cockpit and feel the wind on your face as glorious views of rural Northamptonshire unfold beneath the aircraft (a P and M Quantum or GT450). This unforgettable flying experience kicks off with a full briefing and some on the ground instruction too before the flight. Once in the air, there’s even a chance to take control of the craft and feel what it’s like to be a real life microlight pilot. Whether training for a National Private Pilot Licence, or simply looking for adventure, this experience is a must try!
Tuesday – Sunday throughout the year, excluding the Christmas and New Year period.
Microlighting is extremely weather dependent. Fliers must call the venue before setting out to confirm the experience is able to go ahead as booked.
Expect to be at the venue for up to one hour including a briefing and 30 minutes of microlight flying time.
Briefings may be shared, but all flights are held on a one-to-one basis with a qualified microlight instructor.
Friends and family are welcome to come along and watch. On-site facilities include spectator wheelchair access, a hotel, bar, restaurant, cafe and a museum (open at weekends).
Please wrap up warm and wear sensible shoes (no sandals or heels) and gloves. Sunglasses are recommended all year round.
Minimum age is 16. Maximum weight is 14 stone. Participants must be reasonably fit and able to climb in and out of the microlight. Anyone who suffers from an illness which can cause incapacitation or blackout cannot fly.
