Welcome to Microlighting

Microlight flying is all about having fun in the air with the least expense and greatest freedom. 

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.

It's your choice when it comes to microlight flying. Follow the links and book your flight today. You don't know what you are missing until you have tried it.

Professional instructors are waiting for your call.

How do I become a Microlight 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. If you haven’t already done so you can buy a voucher for your first lesson now through this link.

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.

You can find out more about learning to fly in our Information Library.
