Take a look at this Driving Experiences Experience located in Sywell, Northamptonshire.
Microlight flying is a truly thrilling experience – and the views are incredible. Hop aboard a dual-controlled fixed wing microlight with a CAA approved instructor and get ready for the flight of a lifetime. Climb to incredible heights, sit back and enjoy sensational views of Northamptonshire while the pilot takes the microlight for a spin through the clouds. This exhilarating experience kicks off with a detailed briefing which includes an introduction to the closed cockpit Cosmic Aviation Eurostar microlight. Once in the air, there’s even a chance to take charge of the controls to experience what it’s like to be a real life microlight pilot. For anyone with a sense of adventure and a strong head for heights, this experience is a must try!
Tuesday – Sunday throughout the year, excluding the Christmas and New Year period.
