What Can I Expect

Go microlighting in Perth and 'fly it, love it, live it', as this club's motto goes! You will be cloud surfing with Scotland's beautiful Cairngorms National Park as your backdrop on these flex-wing microlight flights out of Perth airport.

The club is a fully-registered and a greatly respected flight training school for those who want to become microlight pilots. Their Perth aerodrome home boasts the full set of aviation facilities; from the fully operational control tower, to the large hangar with experienced maintenance engineers.

The team here is fun, friendly and has a great sense of humour, along with a serious enthusiasm for their beloved aerial sport of microlighting. Your experience starts with the pre-flight formalities - which might well include a model of a microlight to demonstrate how these things get into and stay in the air.

You then head out to meet the aircraft that'll be propelling you high above the skies of Perth. This school uses the P&M GT450 flex-wing model of microlight. It's renowned for being lightweight, sporty, well-equipped and easy to fly.

If you're game for getting hands-on with this ultra light aviation lark, you will be able to do just that on these Perth-based microlight lessons. We think you'll be surprised how simple the controls are and how re-active they are.

Of course, if you prefer to just enjoy the ride that's fine too. You'll see things like the River Tay as it widens out at Dundee, the gorgeous lochs around Pitlochry and Friarton Bridge on the southern outskirts of Perth - all from the privileged viewpoint of your microlight.

What we love about microlighting at Perth Airport is that flights are offered year round. That means you can choose to fly over the snow-capped mountains on a crisp and clear winter's morning. Or maybe soak up the last of the summer sun on an evening flight in July. We can feel freedom in the air!
