Go flexi or fixed wing in your microlight

We offer microlighting experiences in both flex and fix wing types of ultra light aircraft. One of the most popular models for fixed-wing flights is the Icarus C42, whilst in the realms of the more authentic flex wing, British designer and manufacturer P&M is up there as the most popular make.

Just like any other small aircraft, the cockpit on an Icarus-type aircraft is fully enclosed and the pilot uses the rudder, ailerons and elevator to control pitch, yaw and roll using a control stick. But what makes all the difference is the weight. To be classed as a microlight the aircraft needs to weigh in at less than 450kg - hence the other name these planes are known by; ultralights.

For those who fancy flying in a flex wing microlight, it's a whole different world out there. The fuselage looks like a trike (and to look at it, you'd think it'd never get off the ground!) with a hang glider-style horizontal bar. Once again, weight is on your side, along with the huge wingspan of the foldable wing above your head.

What's more, in a flexi the engine isn't on the nose in front of you, it's right behind you. So one thing's for sure, sitting up front you're going to get the most amazing, uninterrupted aerial views for your flight, as you can see from this microlighting video over Derbyshire!

Each microlight flight is a lesson

And don't forget, when you go microlighting it’s not just as a passenger, each session is actually a lesson and you will be treated as a budding pilot on their first training flight. That means you’ll have a full ground-based safety briefing and a walk around the machine as it sits on the apron at the airfield. You then take part in the pre-flight checks and listen to an explanation of the controls before take off.

Intercom headsets are used so you can hear each other and your experienced instructor pilot will give something of a running commentary as you prepare to get airborne, so you can get a real feel for what it's like to be a microlight pilot.

Even though the take off speed is slow and your maximum ceiling height and cruising speed are pretty low too, there's something inherently charming and 'back to basics' about microlight flying. We think these lightweight little flying machines will steal any aviator’s heart!
