Your choice of fixed or flexi wing for these Microlight lessons in York! This microlight training centre just outside York is very well equipped, with a range of flex and fixed wing microlights that all fly the same, but look quite different.
If you're wondering what the difference is, flex-wing aircraft have fold away wings and most have a more open cockpit, with the engine at the rear. The microlights with a fixed wing often have a motor at the front and the most modern models, such as the Ikarus C42, look just like a regular plane with a covered cockpit and engine - but is still classed as a microlight as it weighs in at less than 450kg fully loaded.
The Ikarus C42 is just one of several microlights available at York and you can choose whether you'd prefer to go 'authentic' with a flexi wing experience or for a more modern fixed wing flight. The school also offers the choice of 30, 45 or 60 minute flights, to suit all desires and budgets.
John Teesdale is Chief Flying Instructor for these microlight lessons in York and you will certainly be in good hands, as John has been flying microlights since he was 16 and is passionate about these ultra light flying machines.
