Flying for the disabled


Microlight aircraft offer fun and affordable flying. Most types can be adapted to enable pilots with limited movement or mobility to have full control and so enjoy their flying as much as any other pilot.

                  

Dave Sykes flew his P&M Quik flexwing microlight from the UK to Australia without any ground support.
