What is Microlighting?

Microlight flying offers an exhilarating experience in the skies, emphasizing enjoyment above all else. These aircraft come in a variety of types, ranging from fully open to the elements to fully enclosed with heating systems.

Controls on microlights vary widely, from the classic handglider and parachute-style controls to conventional stick and rudder setups. Some microlights are tailored for slow, leisurely cruising and sightseeing, while others are designed for longer journeys, spanning the length and breadth of the country or even venturing abroad.

Essentially, a microlight is a lightweight aircraft powered by a small engine, typically accommodating one or two people. Think of it as the offspring of a small plane and a hang glider, combining the thrill of flight with the manoeuvrability and accessibility of lighter aviation. Its a great entry into learning how to fly and a whole lot of fun for all ages!
