Experience description

Modern Flex-Wing Microlights can reach speeds of up to 100mph (160km/h), and have been flown over Mount Everest, and around the world. Broadly-speaking they fly like hang-gliders, exposed to the elements, and offering spectacular 360 degree views. You’ll be flying the latest aircraft, built to UK safety specs, with a qualified and experienced professional pilot at your side. Expect to take the controls during your 30 minute flight, try out a few manoeuvres, and feel the wind beneath your wings!

This mind-blowing experience in an ultra-lightweight aircraft takes place high above the scenic Somerset landscape, so if you have a Go Pro, we recommend bringing it along. Microlighting is becoming a popular hobby since it is a relatively inexpensive and uncomplicated form of flying. If you ever wanted to learn, then getting up in the air is the best place to start!
