Microlighting in Northumbria - fly from this friendly airfield 25 miles north of Newcastle! This airfield is really well located literally just 300 yards off the A1 trunk road at Felton. Once a busy air training facility in war time, the aerodrome is much more relaxed now, aking it the ideal place to have a go at microlighting for the first time.
Eshott airfield, as it is now known, still reaps the benefits of the tarmac runways that were originally built and with hangarage having recently been extended, the venue now has planning permission to welcome up to 70 microlights and light aircraft. There is also a pleasant clubhouse on site where you will sign in and register before your lesson.
Choosing to go microlighting in Northumbria means you will be taken up into the Geordie skies by chief flying instructor Steve Clarehugh, or one of his team. The centre is fully BMAA (British Microlight Aircraft Association) registered and no matter which flight duration you opt for, you will have time to experience flying in a microlight and even have a go at the controls.
