What can I expect on the day

Set the heading for Headcorn for microlight flights over the Garden of England! This very sleek-looking QuikR flex-wing microlight is ready and waiting to get you airborne with a CAA authorised examiner at the helm. Isn't it time you tried ultra light aviation?

When it comes to flying Headcorn has a colourful history. Originally a farm (and sheep can still be seen grazing the fields around the runways), the land was first used for flight training in the First World War. Requisitioned again as a base in WW2, Headcorn was named after Lashenden, a village south west of the airfield in a bid to confuse the enemy. The runways again fell quiet post-war until the current owner's Mother, who was a keen flyer, started the ball rolling again in the late 1950s.

Today Headcorn (Lashenden) is home to not only microlighting, but a whole spectrum of aviation-related businesses and it's a delightful sight to see all the light aircraft neatly lined up in rows in front of the hangars on a sunny day. Facilities here are excellent and (knowing every pilot's penchant for a good cup of tea and breakfast bap) there are not one but two good eateries; Wing's Bar and the Holding Point Cafe.

So Headcorn has everything you could need as a budding pilot, but what about the microlight itself? Well, the QuikR made by P&M Aviation in Lancashire is one of the most advanced flex wing microlights in the world. It certainly looks the part and this one has the latest onboard avionics too. It is still an open cockpit aircraft though, with just a small windshield in front of the pilot, so you will be wearing a flying suit and full-face helmet with integrated radio comms for your flight.

As for your pilot host, Chris has been in the microlighting game for over three decades, so he's a highly experienced flyer of these light and agile machines. Of course, before you take off for your lesson there's a ground briefing, but nothing can quite prepare you for the sensation of the hedgerows rushing towards you as you come into land on one of Headcorn's grass runways. This is grass-roots aviation at its best!

Our Headcorn microlight flights last either 30 or 60 minutes. In that time you'll see all that lovely countryside around the airfield (and be able to spot the actual Lashenden village from the air too) and experience just how capable these agile QuikR microlights are.

This was truly an experience of a lifetime. Chris my instructor and pilot was first class, and very informative, the flight was exhilarating and the views from over Kent outstanding from the sky, no better way to see than in an open microlight, rather than an enclosed plane.
Excellent day and a well run airdrome at Headcorn.
Yes, I recommend this product.
