Microlight flying is the most exciting and cost effective way of getting airborne. Modern two seat microlights fly at upwards of 60mph and carry sufficient fuel for a 5hr flight. If you have the urge to fly, an introductory lesson may turn your dreams into reality and soon you could be free to fly almost anywhere in the world. Indeed, members of our club often fly the length and breadth of Great Britain and throughout Europe.  The pleasure is freedom!

The School
