What Can I Expect

Browse the online reviews for this microlight school based at Wolverhampton Airfield and you'll read comments like 'proper airmen', 'a friendly bunch' and 'experienced and capable', all of which bodes very well if you're going on your very first microlight flight out of Halfpenny Green.

And indeed, microlights have been flying at this Wolverhampton airfield with its trio of runways for a great many years. Chief Flying Instructor Steve Wilkes is passionate about his microlighting and has flown more hours in them than he'd care to admit, so you're in safe hands with Steve and his team.

If you're feeling a little bit nervous before going up (and that's completely normal), all the encouragement you need with the patient and kind words will be there too. The emphasis at Wolverhampton's Halfpenny Green Airport is most definitely on fun, with safety paramount at all times.

We are offering 30, 40 and 60 minute flights in your choice of microlight; that's to say a fixed-wing or a flex-wing. Both will take you on a brilliant aerial adventure and with each having its own character, every flight is different, with lots to see too.

Halfpenny Green is a fabulous place to explore the West Midlands from the air in a microlight. Get a bird's eye view of the golf clubs and parks, swoop along the wonderful Severn Valley or soar over the neighbouring Shropshire Hills. But it's not all about the view, you'll have the chance to have a go at this microlight flying lark too, when you're invited to take the controls during your flight if you fancy it.

So whether you're chasing sunsets over the Severn Valley in a fixed wing, or climbing into the big blue of a midday sky over Halfpenny Green in a flexi, you'll love your chance to be at the controls of a microlight out of Wolverhampton Airport.

Very exhilarating experience with truly amazing views from the sky. Steve was exceptional. His pre flight preparation, instruction and explanation were second to none. What a nice friendly and personable man he is!! Once we were airborne he was calm and reassuring throughout and very informative. He took time to explain where we were all the time and any interesting landmarks as we flew over them. He also took a number of great photographs throughout, which I received on the same day. Overall I can’t recommend the the whole experience highly enough..
