Microlight – Flex wing

At Airways Airsports Microlight Training we offer air experience flights and microlight lessons and training courses using two different kinds of microlight – flexwing and fixed wing. A microlight is a small, light aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of under 450 kg.

Flexwing microlights have a “hang glider” shaped wing with a trike unit below, containing the engine, seats and landing gear.  Flexwings are open cockpit aircraft, exposed to the elements, with either two seats (passenger seated behind the pilot) or a single seat. They are steered by the pilot moving the trike unit from side to side and forward and aft.

All our microlight instructors are highly experienced pilots and you will really enjoy your flying experience of microlighting at Airways Airsports, whether you come for a single microlight trial lesson or a full microlight course.

If you want to buy something special for a birthday or other celebration, why not treat them to a microlight experience?  You can choose from a range of options among our gift vouchers 

Flex Wing - Single Seat Deregulated & Sub 70kg

Single Seat De-Regulation (SSDR) & Sub 70kg has opened up access to many wonderful flying machines to the solo microlight pilot. There is the possibility of further cross-credit routes to a microlight licence from hang glider and paraglider power ratings.
