Flying a microlight aircraft could be described as true freedom in the air. It's certainly an exciting form of flight that has developed greatly over the last 20 years, evolving into one of the safest and most economical ways of getting into the air. So, if you've ever fancied having a go at flying, here's an opportunity to experience the thrill and excitement of this fantastic form of flight.
Like the earliest pioneers of powered flight, you'll experience for yourself the sensation of flying in one of these small yet robust aircraft. You have the option of flying in either a fixed-wing or flexwing aircraft, and you'll be cruising over the beautiful Kent countryside at around 50-60 mph at up to 2000 feet. You can book for a 30 or 60 minute flight, and all the equipment you need will be provided. However, it's a good idea to bring along a warm jacket or sweatshirt, as even on the warmest of days it can be a little chilly in the sky. In Winter you might also want to wear an extra pair of socks.
After briefing you on your flight and carrying out a full preflight safety check on the aircraft you'll taxi out onto our grass runway at Stoke Airfield, situated right alongside the Medway Estuary. Once airborne you'll climb to around 2000 feet from where you'll have a marvelous view of the surrounding countryside. Depending on the weather conditions, and whether you want to or not, you can have a go at flying the aircraft. And your instructor will show you how to perform basic flight manoeuvres like turning, climbing and descending.
We're open 7 days a week all year round, so you can book a flight when it suits you. We can fly in a wide range of weather conditions, but sometimes the weather does defeat us. We want to make every effort to ensure you enjoy your flying experience in pleasant flying conditions. So if the weather isn't good enough we'll simply rebook your flight with you. There are no age restrictions and we're happy to fly people from 14 to 90. You can also bring along any friends or family who wish to watch you from the ground.
We promise that you'll be transported into a new and unique dimension. You are guaranteed a mind-blowing event that won't be equalled anywhere. You will have a truly magical experience that will long remain a treasured memory. We'll even give you a souvenir certificate at the end of your flight to remember it by.
