We really like this Driving Experiences Experience in Riseley, Bedfordshire.
Looking for an extreme aerial thrill? When it comes to aviation, a microlight flight is about as exciting as it gets. Hop aboard a dual-controlled flex wing GT450 microlight and prepare for the adventure of a lifetime. Soar through the skies in an open cockpit and feel the wind on your face as glorious views of rural Bedfordshire unfold beneath the aircraft. The experience kicks off with a full and fascinating briefing and during the flight, there’s even a chance to take over the controls to feel the rush of being a real microlight pilot. As a special memento, bring along an SD memory card and the flight can be filmed, at no extra cost, in HD so that you can show off those flying skills to friends and family. Will you catch the flying bug?
Weekdays throughout the year, excluding the Christmas and New Year period.
