What can I expect on the day

Microlighting in Northumbria - fly from this friendly airfield north of Newcastle and get a taste for high-altitude adventure with our range of Northumbrian microlight flying experiences. Whether you’re looking for a superb sightseeing session or an introduction into aviation skills, these courses are the perfect way to discover the thrills of flying and even piloting your own microlight.

Eshott Airfield is located just off the A1, in a prime location for visitors and providing excellent aerial access to the beautiful, rugged countryside of the North East. Once a busy wartime air training facility, the aerodrome is much more relaxed now and offers microlighting in and around Northumbria, making it the ideal aerodrome to find your flying wings. The aerodrome still reaps the benefits of the tarmac runways that were originally built and with hangarage having recently been extended, the venue now has planning permission to welcome up to 70 microlights and light aircraft and is fully BMAA (British Microlight Aircraft Association) registered.

There are two flight durations available – 30 or a full 60 minutes of airtime – allowing you to experience the full aeronautical ecstasy of microlighting in a session tailored to your individual wishes, with an emphasis on photography and panoramic views, or perhaps with some time at the controls included. Regardless of which time limit you choose, you’ll take off on your first microlighting mission with Chief Flying Instructor Storm Smith or one of his team of Northumbrian-based expert flying instructors.

Before leaving the ground, there is a short registration process, where you’ll also be given information about the aircraft, the sport of microlighting and any relevant safety procedures. Then it’s out to the tarmac runways to meet your instructor and the magical machine that will be taking you up to the Northumbria heights for your first go at microlighting.

If you or someone you love would like the incredible chance to soar through the Geordie skies, then try your hand at microlighting in Northumbria. This whirlwind combination of piloting and panoramic views is not to be missed and you’ll be rewarded with some breathtaking vistas of the North East from the prime spot in your seat in the microlight thousands of feet up in the air.
