Welcome to Swift Light Flight

Swift Light Flight is a Training School and Microlight Club based at Shobdon Airfield, set in the beautiful countryside of Herefordshire. Shobdon is a relaxed and friendly place to learn to fly and we welcome aspiring microlight pilots. The airfield is sufficiently busy with all types of aviation to give our students an appreciation of larger, more procedural airfields.

Firstly, for a description of microlight aircraft, go here.

We specialise in Pilot Training to a very high standard complying with the Microlight Training Syllabus for the National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL).  We welcome student pilots who have never flown before. For experienced pilots, we offer Type Conversions, Differences Training, Advanced Courses and Pilot Revalidation, with safety being a high priority in all microlight training. We currently offer training on fixed wing Ikarus C42b, Thruster T600N and flexwing P&M Quik GT 450 912S aircraft. 

Courses are tailored to the student’s needs and abilities. Accommodation is available on site with a café and bar. Package offers, including accommodation,  are available – see here
