On the afternoon of Monday 14th August 2017 I took to the skies over Swindon in a flexi-wing microlight with my pilot Dave. What a wonderful way to get a different view of the Swindon and the surrounding area. Dave pointed out all the places and landmarks of interest and took me over the area where I live. The chance to actually control the microlight, briefly was the icing on the cake. This is something I would like to do again.
My microlight flight on Sunday 21st May 2017 was a wonderful experience. I thoroughly enjoyed every single minute and was very fortunate to have a wonderful pilot - Dave - who told me everything that was happening and pointed out all the various points of interest. It was a little bit blustery but that did not spoil the thrill and joy of the flight in the slightest - I hope to be able to take another flight in the not too distant future. Thanks and kind regards to you all, Pat Foster
