What Can I Expect

Book your flights in microlights over Hampshire, operating out of the lovely Daedalus Airfield. We are offering 30, 45 and 60-minute flights in flex and wing microlights and every flight comes with stunning coastal views included for free!

These microlight experiences boast quite possibly the most scenic flight paths we have on our books. There's just so much to see from the air around this delightful part of the Hampshire coast between Portsmouth and Southampton. Head over the Solent estuary and you've got the nature reserve, go the other way and you’ll look down on Hayling Island. Take a southerly direction and you're soon over the Isle of Wight.

The amazing scenery and optimal flying conditions are also what attracted Chief Flying Instructor Ian MacAdam to set up his microlight school at Lee-on-the-Solent. Ian has been flying hang gliders and microlights since 1987 and has flown all around the world, before settling in Hampshire.

Since 2007, Ian has been a main agent for leading flex-wing microlight manufacturer P&M. You'll take your lesson in one of the school's GT450 or PulsR microlights. The PulsR is a composite sem-enclosed microlight for extra comfort. The GT450, on the other hand, is open-to-the-elements model, so it's flight suit and headset on for your ‘with the elements’ flight!

All experiences are treated as actual lessons, so you'll follow the NPPL(M) syllabus, which is the official microlight pilot's training programme. That means you'll learn how these machines fly, how the controls work and have a go at flying yourself.

With a full range of flight durations, it's also good to know Lee-on-the-Solent airfield is open all year round. Blue skies and beaches in summer and silky smooth air with low winds in autumn and winter - that's the beauty of flights in microlights in Hampshire!
