ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

Microlight Flight Kent

Microlight over The Garden of England and enjoy the spectacular visuals provided at 2,000ft by the Microlight aircraft that is capable of over 70mph - with a qualified instructor present throughout.

Microlighting is the most authentic way to get up and out enjoying the skies and the glorious views of below, as the age old sport pits you in the seat of an open cockpit and exposes you to a pure, unbridled sea of views - none more so than The Garden of England itself; Kent. Taking off from Stoke Airfield, your 20minute Microlight flight will have you soaring through the skies at 2,000ft at speeds of up to 70mph - with nothing but gloriously picturesque countryside below. An authentic and altogether magnificent way to get out appreciating the lushness of Kent, and the brilliance of Leonardo da Vinci's age old flying machine!Your Microlighting trial flight in Kent will start with a welcome to Stoke Airfield, where you'll meet the instructor ready for a flying experience to remember - piloting a lightweight aircraft over The Garden of England that is the south's most lusciously green county. Once briefed in the safety aspects and essential protocols of Microlighting, you and your instructor will be en route to a height circa 2,000ft - where you'll reach speeds of around 70mph! Soaring through the skies with the instructor at the helm; if all goes to plan and the weather permits - you may get chance to pilot the simple flying machine yourself! Once the flying has been grounded and you're back on terra firma - you'll conduct a quick post flight aircraft check before being presented with a commemorative certificate to remember your day with.

Mark was amazing. We saw seals sunbathing on sand banks. Pumpkin fields and much more. He was really informative and friendly.

Fantastic Experience

Really enjoyed this trip and insight into flying a light aircraft. The information I received in such a short space of time really opened my mind to this experience and made me want to learn to fly in this way. The views were wonderful from the aircraft and I was being trained in the controls at the same time, so I felt part of the whole experience, thank you Gary. A very fascinating and encouraging trainer. An experience I would recommend.

Amazing time

Had an amazing 20 minute microlight flight. The instructor was experienced, confident and a great teacher. Imagine I'll be going back over the summer to try out some more!

Incredible flight!

This experience was incredible! I chose the Fixed Wing Microlight which I thoroughly enjoyed. Greg and Paul were very welcoming and friendly, which made me feel at ease throughout my flight. Would highly recommend.

Wow wow wow!

What an amazing experience! I chose to fly the flex wing and oh my god what a choice it was! Greg, my instructor made me feel at total ease and even allowed me to fly it myself. I would recommend this experience to everyone, whether the like flying or not. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before. I would urge you all to try it!

Fabulous experience

I was bought this for my retirement as I like flying. The people were friendly and the microlight was great fun to fly in and control. An experience to savour and enjoy to the full.

Microlight

I took a microlight flight on Saturday 30th May and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My son in law also flew and quite a number of family turned up to watch making it a great family day. Also very good value for money.

My wife and I both went together and flew at the same time. The flight instructors were very friendly and fun to talk to. The facilities were small but very clean and well run. The flight was amazing, having not been in a micro light before we did not know what to expect It was a great experience and I would recommend it to anybody young or old - we are both pensioners so what are you waiting for? Get it booked you won’t regret it!

Superb Instructor

The instructor was superb-this guy makes the experience wonderful

-

Fantastic experience with great people - had a brilliant day and would definitely recommend it!

-

Absolutely top drawer. The instructor was brilliant, really knowledgeable (obviously?) and constantly passing on useful information/observations which really made the time fly (?) It felt like we were only in the air 10 minutes, but it was more like half an hour.

-

Flight instruction really excellent, a genuinely friendly atmosphere. Facilities a little basic but honestly, all the best flying clubs are!! A thoroughly enjoyable day (but then I am biased as it involved aircraft!). Thanks for making it so memorable.

-

Fantastic flight, friendly staff, all good

-

Staff were more than accomodating dispite me being half an hour late. couldnt have been more welcoming and friendly, i would definatly go again. thank you.

-

A windy day which I believed would lead to a postponement of the flight. To my surprise it went ahead albeit with a 40mph wind. This led to us not going to far as, going out, we were against the wind. Coming back however was brisk! It was a great experience and would be good to do again with more time spent in the air. It did seem mad sitting in the open air 3500 ft in the air in nothing more than a bathtub with an engine!

-

Not much to say really... just that I thoroughly enjoyed my flight. It was an experience that I am glad I did not miss.
