the whole experience of seeing things from the air whilst exposed

have put neutral for ease of booking as it is weather dependent and we were not lucky many times before finally getting to use the voucher -NOT their fault though of course!

Never been in a microlight before. Glad to have managed to book one after a postponement due to poor weather (quite difficult and down to luck of the day)

I had been expecting a lesson, and the opportunity to drive, even for a short while. I was expecting an 80 minute 'lesson' with 60 mins in the aircraft. What I got was a ride in the back seat, no hands on, which lasted about 40 minutes. Enjoyable but less than expected. The staff and pilot were very nice so I made no complaint. I was relieved to be able to cash my voucher at all, before the 31 August after which they made it clear it would not be honoured.

Great feeling of flying with such an open cockpit.

A little difficult getting in touch to arrange the flight. A lot of weather variables that may cancel the flight, you need to be quite flexible with dates.
