What can I expect on the day

Head off in a microlight over Cornwall for some super light flying with grade A views included! Bodmin Airfield is the perfect location for having your first go in a microlight. 

And what a great airfield it is! Originally a farm, the aerodrome was purpose built for General Aviation use by plane enthusiast and well-known local Cornish business owner Mike Robertson. In 1972 the airfield was sold to the flying club that now owns and runs it as a non-profit organisation, ensuring aviation is as affordable as possible, so the enthusiasm for microlighting in Cornwall can continue for generations to come.

As well as the sound business set up Bodmin boasts, you can’t ignore the fabulous scenery. Within minutes of taking off you’ll be treated to aerials views of Cornwall that’ll take some beating as you cruise along in your microlight. Expect rugged coastline, swathes of blue blue sea, hidden bays and rolling green countryside too. All pretty idyllic we think you’d agree.

So what sort of microlight will you be getting airborne in? This Cornish club has chosen to go with the both fixed wing and flex wing microlights. The Ikarus C42, is a German-built ultra light aircraft that has started a bit of a revolution in the light aviation industry.  

In essence, these modern, closed-cockpit, fixed wing microlights have brisk acceleration (having even won World Speed Records), are easy to fly and comfortable too, with plenty of legroom, good views from the cockpit and a feeling of stability too. You’ll also be surprised about how quiet it is in the air. But one of the best things (as well as actually getting to have a go at flying one of these microlights) is the fact that they have gull-wing doors to get into the cockpit!

But if you want to go authentic, it has to be the flex-wing P&M GT430 microlight. This is all about the wind-in-your-hair moment, as you go soaring over Cornwall in an open cockpit aircraft. Nothing beats that feeling as you taxi off in these quirky little flying machines - and it’s all so different from your typical light aircraft.

We are currently offering 30 and 60 minute flights in a club-owned and maintained microlight from Cornwall’s loveliest little aerodrome near Bodmin. And be warned, once you’ve flown an Ikarus or a P&M, it could be the start of a wonderful new hobby…

This was a genuinely fantastic experience. The site was difficult to get to due to the road works on the A30 but well worth the detour.

The microlight wasn't quite what I expected (I was imagining a hanglider type one) but it was one of the best experiences of my life. The pilot was professional and funny and made me feel at ease.

I was amazed at how much I was left at the controls! Once in level flight I was in charge of the stick....a brilliant experience. The pilot then showed me what the aircraft was capable off which was fantastic.

A genuine 10/10.
Yes, I recommend this product.
