The Trial Introductory Flight might be your first open air experience but it is also your first lesson in a microlight aircraft. It is your chance to experience the truly amazing sensation of flight in one of these small, yet incredibly robust, flying machines.
You will experience for yourself the filling of open-cockpit flight in a small aircraft. The school's microlights fly at around 90-120 km/h, no faster than a sedate cruise on a motorcycle, and we will fly at around 1000-2500 feet, so you'll have plenty of time to take in the unrivalled views you get from the back seat and practical contact and observation of an aircraft capability.
You can choose a duration of flight from 15-60 minutes however 30-40 minutes flight should be sufficient to achieve our goal. All the equipment you need for your trial flight - flying suit, helmet and intercom headset - will be provided.
The Trial Introductory Flight includes comprehensive pre-flight briefing, description of the aircraft and how to board it. We will then give you a basic explanation of procedures and controls. During the flight, if you wish, you may take control of the aircraft if the weather conditions are suitable.
Microlights are unaffected by rain and are perfectly safe to fly in quite rough atmospheric conditions. However, we want you to get the very best out of your flight and so will make every effort to ensure you take a flight in pleasant conditions. If weather conditions are not conducive to flying we will simply re-book your flight.
Please call Richard on 0407 281 687 to confirm flying conditions.
Passengers under 18 years old will require the permission of parent / guardian. Maximum weight is 100kg.
