Experience the extraordinary thrill of flying in a microlight aircraft, the excitement will warm you, the views will amaze you and flying from Kemble the spectacle over the Cotswolds is unique – wide open vistas, hills and valleys. Look down into the Roman amphitheatre at Cirencester, across the 100 lakes that make up the Cotswold Water Park and swoop around Malmesbury where over 1,000 years ago Eilmer the flying monk made this country’s first ever manned flight with wings he had attached to himself!
Whatever your flight duration you will most days see the River Severn and the Brecon Beacons to the west, the Malvern hills to the north, views across the Cotswolds way into Oxfordshire to the east and the Marlborough Downs and the edge of Salisbury Plain to the south. We will cover the ground at between 70 and 90 mph and yet float majestically as the world moves slowly beneath. We will usually climb to an altitude higher than our mountains and you will see the World is indeed a small place – there is no need to go into Space for that! And, you can handle the controls and fly the plane!

Trainee pilots follow the British Microlight Aircraft Association (BMAA) syllabus of training.
Our school is also Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved for the provision of Flying Instructor Training.
