What can I expect on the day

Have a go at Microlighting in Oxfordshire and enjoy your first aerial miles in a microlight! This small and friendly school is based at Enstone Airfield around 14 miles north west of Oxford city centre and boasts tranquility in the skies, as well as the chance to see the lovely Cotswolds from the air - what more could you ask for on a microlighting lesson in Oxfordshire?

Your flight session will be hosted by Phil Reed who has been microlighting since 1989 and a fully qualified CAA instructor here in Oxfordshire since 1993. He is also an examiner, so he tests budding students and those pilots wanting to be tutors too, so we know you're under safe wings as you prepare for your introductory foray into flying these Ultra Light aircraft.

Our Enstone venue offers trial flights in fixed wing aircraft from renowned ultralight manufacturer Thruster. Thruster's Sprint microlight is powered by a four stroke Jabiru engine that is mounted above the cockpit, rather than on the nose of the fuselage. This fix wing craft uses 'standard' controls, that's to say it has a control stick and rudder pedals inside the cockpit. The centre is also fully registered and licenced to sell, service and maintain many marques of microlight.

On arrival, you will be met by one of the microlighting team at the HQ which is located within the Oxfordshire Sportflying Clubhouse, underneath the airfield's control tower. You'll see there are lots of other privately and shared ownership planes around the apron alongside the asphalt and grass runways and in the hangar, making this a bustling little aerodrome. The advantage at Enstone is that you are in pretty much all unrestricted airspace around these parts of Oxfordshire, so there is plenty of scope for circuits and various flight paths in the immediate area

Microlighting Oxfordshire is offered on a one to one basis, with all flights taking place in dual-controlled fixed wing Thruster microlights. We have 20, 30, 45 and 60 flight durations available and in each case you will have a pre-flight safety briefing before take off and once airborne, you will be invited to take the controls - and if you fancy continuing to get your NPPL(M) (that's National Private Pilot's Licence Microlighting) these initial lessons in Oxfordshire do count towards the minimum 25 flying hours needed to gain your licence.

I thoroughly enjoyed my Micro-lite experience at Enstone. Phil (the instructor) was very friendly, relaxed, professional and helpful. The entire process from taking the Micro-lite from the hangar through the taxiing to runaway, flight and return were all part of an excellent experience. The flight was really good with lovely views (including good look at Blenheim Palace) and also flew over the Renault F1 centre. Phil allowed me to take control for quite a good part of the time, including some gentle turns and part of descent. (I had done some hang gliding a LONG time ago). I felt totally safe at all times and really hope to be able to do more in the future. Whether you have flown this way before or not you will feel reassured and in good hands. All in all; Superb!
Yes, I recommend this product.
