Overview

Get ready to soar with excitement!

Discover the thrill of microlighting like never before with these unbeatable nationwide microlight lessons! They’re rolling out the red carpet for you, offering 20, 30, and even 60-minute microlight experiences that take off from airfields across the entire country. Yep, you read that right – they're everywhere!

Your voucher is your golden ticket to adventure, and it's valid at all the fantastic locations currently listed. That's right, folks, these microlight lessons are not only the best value in town but also the most flexible ones out there.

Before you take flight, you'll kick things off with a pre-flight briefing that'll get you buzzing with anticipation. You'll get up close and personal with the aircraft, and here's the kicker: these microlights are so light (less than 450kg, to be exact) that they practically defy gravity! We'll also sprinkle in some fascinating insights into the basic principles of flight – trust us, it's like a science fiction movie before you even leave the ground!

Once you're securely strapped in, leave the take-off and climb to the pros – our experienced instructors have got you covered. As you settle into the clouds, your pilot will treat you to a few graceful turns, and then it's your turn to shine. Believe it or not, you'll find that piloting a microlight is a piece of cake (and incredibly thrilling!) – it's like riding a bike, but in the sky!

Microlight aircraft come in all shapes and sizes. Some clubs across the UK are cruising in modern fixed-wing microlights, offering the comfort of a regular training aircraft. Others are keeping it old school with flexible-wing, 'open cockpit' style microlights that give you that wind-in-your-hair, open-to-the-elements kind of flying.

Safety is our top priority, so rest assured that all the microlight clubs and training schools we feature are proud members of the British Microlight Aircraft Association. Plus, their aircraft meet all the British Civil Airworthiness Requirements set by the CAA – no shortcuts taken here!

Ready to take the plunge (or should we say flight?) into the world of microlighting? Our nationwide vouchers are your ticket to over 20 different microlight schools all across the country. No matter where you are, there's an airfield waiting to whisk you away on this ultra-light adventure. So why wait? In just a few clicks, you'll have your best value microlight experience booked and ready to rock!
