MODERN AND EFFICIENT. OUR FLEET OF MICROLIGHTS.

What is a microlight?

A microlight is almost identical to any other type of aeroplane. In short, a microlight is restricted to two seats and must be able to fly at a slow speed. Most microlight have a maximum take off weight of 450kg which is around half the weight of a Fiat 500. This makes them very capable aircraft which are also very economical. All microlights are restricted to day time visual flight only.

There are two main common types of microlight. The first is the 3-axis microlight which look and perform just like a conventional aeroplane.

The second type is a flexwing microlight which consists of a trike attached to a delta wing commonly seen on hang gliders. Our sister school Mainair Microlight Centre operate a Quik flexwing microlight.

For more information on microlights please visit the BMAA website.
