What Can I Expect

Book a flight in a microlight from Hertfordshire's Plaistows Farm Airfield and fly with a champion! These 30 and 60-minute flights are in flex-wing microlights and your host is a champion of microlighting.

Exodus Airsports is run by Rob Grimwood, multiple World, European and UK Microlight champion. He has actually held all three titles at once - a pretty impressive feat, we're sure you'll agree. But there are no airs and graces here, Rob is super approachable and still as enthusiastic as the day he started microlighting when he was just 10 years old.

These experiences out of Plaistows will be in the flex winged P&M GT450 microlight. It's very much all about the open cockpit feel. And despite what you might think, these ultra light planes are far from basic. They are made from super-light, high-tech materials, using modern technology to create a stable, reliable and responsive machine.

Of course, these flights over Hertfordshire aren't just for discovering the joys of microlighting. You will also (if you want to) get the chance to take the controls and find out what it's like to pilot one yourself, as all experiences are treated as trial lessons.

Back to that open cockpit thing. You might think there's no way you'd get a flex wing flying in the winter months. But with proper insulated flying suits on offer, being up in the still skies in a microlight over Hertfordshire on a cold, crisp winter's day can't be beaten. And this is why this microlighting at Plaistows Farm is open all year round.
