Types and performance

Types of Microlights and their performance

There are two types of microlight in general use at the moment. The fixed wing (3 Axis) and the flex wing (weightshift) aircraft. Chose from single seat or 2 seat on both types - below are some examples of these. The fixed wing behaves very much like a conventional aircraft, but costs considerably less to run! The flex wing has a moveable wing with a trike suspended below it and is flown by moving the weight of the trike using a horizontal bar. Both are great fun and easily accessible. Book a trial flight today and see for yourself.
