What Can I Expect

Go microlighting over Peterborough and fly over the fens and forests! We are offering 30 and 45-minute flights out of Conington Airfield. This flying club operates modern C42B Ikarus light sport aircraft, which, although classed as microlights, give you all the comfort of a standard small aeroplane. 

What we love about these Conington microlight experiences is the personal service and attention to detail. Captain Gareth Aggett has many thousands of hours of flying experience and his preferred method of teaching is more like mentoring. He is with students all the way from the first time flight, right through to passing their licence.

And these trial microlight flights out of Conington are totally bespoke to you too. Captain Aggett loves it when those new to microlighting get to experience first hand what it's like to fly in an Ikarus. Each flight is geared to you and, most excitingly, totally hands-on.

Your in-flight training starts with explanations of the main control inputs. Lessons then get straight down to business with you at the controls, as you circle over the Conington Airfield area. On the 30-minute lesson you'll make good progress, flying straight, flying level - and flying both together.

Choosing the 45-minute experience (our most popular voucher) extends the flight time, so you learn more in the air and get the benefit of more hands-on time at the controls. You might even get to the stage of following some local Conington line features (important visual aids for pilots!), such as the drainage dykes and motorways around the Peterborough area.

With lots to see and do during these microlighting experiences in Peterborough, your flights are sure to be engaging and fun from the moment you taxi to the runway, to when you step out of the Ikarus at the end. Oh and don't forget your camera, there will be lots of photo opportunities too! Buy your Conington flight voucher now.
