Welcome to Microlighting

Microlights offer the opportunity to fly your own aircraft when and where you want. You might fly from one of the many microlight airfields around the country where you will make friends with other pilots and share their adventures and social activities, such as flying across the sea to France for lunch or taking part in a flying competition.

Or you might fly from a friendly farmer's field taking off at a time to suit you to explore the local countryside and see the views that are only there from the air.

How to become a Pilot

The first step is to take a Trial Lesson with a microlight instructor so that you can find out at first-hand how achievable and what great fun it is. Use the link below to find a local club where you can take your first flight.

After your introduction to microlight training through your trial lesson you can take further lessons to complete the microlight pilot’s syllabus which will take you up to gaining a pilot’s licence. For more detailed information try our Resources.
