Microlight at Netherthorpe.

The actual flight was as expected,and the Pilot very good, but as is normal for me it took me numerous attempts over a period of a day and a half to work my way through both your and the pilots websites, every question seems to me to have more than one answer, I even visited the airfield before completing the forms. I do not like websites.

A great gift!

Having been bought a Microlight flight experience as a 'secret Santa' gift I finally got around to booking it for a morning flight in the last week of August. It was very easy and straightforward to book a convenient time through the microlight flight- lessons website. All the necessary details were clearly explained on the website and contact numbers etc for weather and directions to find Netherthorpe airfield. Confirmation of booking and reminders were sent quickly via emails from Dave Buck the chief flight instructor. So we arrived - I say we - including my wife - plus the two not so secret Santas and two grandchildren. The airfield was easy to find and we were immediately made to feel welcome by Dave who explained what would happen, made the grandchildren welcome , checked my weight and got me into my flight suit. Safety briefing was very clear and the excited spectators were shown to a nice area where they could watch safely. Helmet and headset on I climbed in, Dave could not have been more helpful and we were in the air in no time at all. Absolutely brilliant!! The experience is just so immediate; flying over the countryside with Dave describing a whole list of interesting features punctuated by his vast knowledge of local history. We had a great chat and a good few laughs. You feel very secure in his hands as he corrects for wind direction and could not feel more in touch with the thrilling sensation of flying . After a good half hour flight the landing was excellent - just that thrilling sense of coming in to land with a genuinely smooth touch down. Dave was just so affable it just added to an incredible Chritmas Present and excellent value for money gift. Much better than a pair of socks! The spectators got some great photos and video clips with excited oohs and ahhs from my wife , Secret Santas and granddaughters. I would highly recommend it !!!
