Experience the thrill of flying in a microlight in the safe hands of an instructor. Fly over East Lothian's beautiful beaches and famous golf courses and see the world's largest gannet colony on the Bass Rock from a different perspective!
On longer flights you can take off over the Lammermuir Hills and down towards the Borders or over the Firth of Forth to Fife.
You never know, you may love it so much that you will decide that you want to train to be a pilot yourself!
Winter Flying is wonderful over the Lammermuirs
Gift Voucher for 30 Minute Flight
A fun introduction to microlighting
After a short briefing the instructor will pilot the aircraft, taking off and showing you the basic controls.
You will then be invited to try flying it yourself from the back seat, for as long or short a time as you wish, though the instructor will take over for the landing!
PLEASE ALLOW 1 HOUR FOR THIS EXPERIENCE.
East coast trial flight
Gift Voucher for 60 Minute Flight
A chance to spend a bit longer in the back seat
A longer version of the 30 minute flight, where you can have a go at flying it yourself from the back seat, and also have time to sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery passing beneath you. Ideal for those with a special interest in the East Lothian area, or for those who wish to take photographs and need a bit more time in the air.
PLEASE ALLOW 2 HOURS FOR THIS EXPERIENCE.
Trial flight over Edinburgh
Gift Voucher for 90 Minute Flight
Change seats with the instructor and do some flying yourself!
This flight can be done as longer version of the 60 minute flight with the chance to go further afar, or as a "two in one" experience where you start off in the
back seat, and get the feel of being up there while the instructor
shows you the basic controls of the aircraft. The instructor will then land the aircraft
and you change seats and fly the remainder of the flight from the front seat, putting into practice what you have been shown on the first part of the flight -
a great combination of fun flying and a lesson.
PLEASE ALLOW 2½ HOURS FOR THIS EXPERIENCE.
6000' over the Firth of Forth
Gift Voucher for 120 Minute Flight
A BIG adventure!
On this flight you have a choice. You can either do the same as for the 90 minute flight, with the instructor beginning the flight in the front seat, but you get to fly further with an outlanding at another airfield (probably either in the Borders or Fife, or even further afield if conditions permit) where you swap seats and have a really good length of time piloting the aircraft yourself. Or you can stay in the back seat and have a longer sightseeing flight - we have flown people over the Trossachs, up to Perth or down to south Northumberland. Ideal for those who really want to go places!
PLEASE ALLOW 3 HOURS FOR THIS EXPERIENCE.
