Microlight Training Courses and Costs

Your microlight training can be done in a way to suit you.  The pre-paid lesson rate gives you a discount on the standard hourly rate when you purchase a pack of 5 lessons. Whether you are starting from scratch, getting back into flying, or need a little extra confidence building, we can make a programme to suit you.

There are two general routes to follow for training :-

  • On the school aircraft
  • On your own aircraft

Using a school aircraft is the most convenient method as there is no need to outlay the cost of an aircraft to learn to fly, and during the initial lessons you may decide that the sport is not for you. However, once convinced that you do want to continue, having your own, or a part share of an aircraft to train on will save you money. In addition your aeroplane is always available to you, whereas a school aircraft may not be.

Booking Lessons
