This awesome 1 hour Microlight flight in Lincolnshire gives you a full-on flight experience, where you even get to fly the ultralight aircraft yourself! Up, up and away!

Price for 1 participant

A microlight flight experience is a completely unique sort of flying experience, and one that is as far away from a 737 at Gatwick as you could imagine! Microlight flying is a little closer to the elements, and offers a brand new perspective on the world of aviation - and on the gorgeous Lincolnshire landscape beneath you! This is a 60 minute Microlight flight in Lincolnshire's Wickenby Airfield, that allows you to get up there and sample the considerable delights of ultralight aviation.

For this Lincolnshire microlight flight, you can choose whether you want to try a flexi-wing or fixed-wing microlight, and will get a full hour-long flying experience from engine-on to engine-off.

Take off is at Wickenby Airfield in Lincolnshire, a lovely ex-RAF airfield with a museum and catering facilities on-site. In the very capable hands of a pro-pilot instructor you'll reach the dizzy heights of 2000ft, and speeds of 60mph. Then you sit back, breathe the air up there, and look down as Lincolnshire passes far beneath you! If you're feeling comfortable, you will even have a chance to take the controls of the microlight yourself, and fly it yourself for a while!

On the day, you will arrive at Wickenby Airfield in Lincolnshire, where you sign in and meet your pilot/instructor for the flight. He or she will deliver a thorough briefing on the ins and outs of Microlight flight as well as any safety information you need to be aware of. That done, you will head to the runway, climb into the aircraft and sit back as your pilot takes you up, up and away! Reaching an altitude of 2000ft and speeds of 60mph, you have nothing to do but sit in wonder as you soar above the Lincolnshire countryside for an hour-long glorious introduction to Microlight flight!

During the 60 minute Microlight flight experience, you will even be given the chance to actually pilot the aircraft yourself, when the instructor passes the controls to you for a portion of the flight! This is purely at the discretion of your instructor, and is not compulsory! At the end of the hour, you will land gently on terra firma at the lovely Wickenby Airfield in Lincolnshire, where you will have a post-flight chat with your pilot.
