To fly a microlight aircraft you require a National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL), with ‘Microlight’ type rating. This is gained by undergoing a microlight training course with a qualified instructor at a microlight school, in accordance with a CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) syllabus of training. You will require a minimum of 25 hours of instructional flying time made up of both dual training and solo supervision, this is a minimum Flylight time requirement and in most cases can take longer.
Flying lessons are booked as a two-hour slot that allows for up to one hour flying and time for briefing and debriefing.
Your microlight training can be done in a way to suit you. With no set time frame you can chose to fly regularly or to your flight training around your lifestyle. The pre-paid lesson rate gives you a discount on our standard hourly rate when you purchase a pack of 5 lessons. Whether you are starting from scratch, getting back into flying, or need a little extra confidence building, we can make a Microlight flight training programme to suit you. Dual Training can be as little as £90 per hour when using your own aircraft.
