Microlight Flying

Over the Mournes, over the Sperrins, along Strangford and Lough Erne; have you ever looked up and seen birds soaring and wondered what it was like? Now you can get this thrill safely by having a go microlight flying in Northern Ireland.

Microlights are small, light but very safe aircraft. If you want to just have a go then take an introductory flight. If you want to go a step further then book some microlight lessons with a range of providers and clubs. These clubs are friendly and all the facilities to realise your dreams of wind in your hair and soaring like a bird.

How to get started?
For those you just want to get up there and have a go then an introductory flight is you. Contact a provider and book your flight. Easy, anyone can do it.
If you want to take it a step further then microlight flight is easily achieved by joining one of the local clubs. The requirement for the private pilot licence is 25 hours minimum flying experience with a qualified flying instructor. Pass a number of exams and way you go.

Is it expensive?
To sample Microlighting a 30 minute introductory flying lesson will cost around £70.
