Microlighting is, according to statistics, the safest form of sport aviation in the UK. A common question is "what happens if the engine stops?" - the answer is that they glide gently down to earth, and in East Lothian there are plenty of suitable fields to land in. At East of Scotland Microlights the aircraft we use are top of the range, UK-built to extremely high CAA-regulated safety standards and they are maintained and inspected regularly. We also pride ourselves that the level of training we offer is of a very high calibre - once you have trained with us, you will be prepared for most eventualities you may come across.
There is a bus service which runs between Haddington and North Berwick (First Bus, number 121) with a drop-off at the Museum of Flight and East Fortune House - ask them to drop you at the end of the runway - I'm sure they will oblige! Details here.
