Learning to fly is a fun challenge. Anyone can learn from 14 years+, we currently have students from 14-85 years old. The only limit is that you must weigh 115kg (18 stone) or less. Medical requirement are simple: If you can drive a car, you can fly a microlight.
A flying lesson consists of a briefing, an hour of flying and a debriefing afterwards so we allocate a two hour slot per lesson. Our lesson start times are: 10am, 12pm, and 2pm, with 4pm available from March to October.
To qualify as a pilot you’ll need to fly for a minimum of 25 hours in total. However it is rare for someone without previous flying experience to be able to complete all the training in that time, 35-45 hours is more typical for a beginner. Most people elect to spread the cost over a year or two of learning, but training can be done more intensively it you prefer, this will tend to reduce the total hours needed. We can be flexible so let us know what works best for you. Find out more about The NPPL Course
