Microlighting
Written by Mark Millard   

Microlighting is powered flight in one of it's most versatile, accessible and simplest forms. Microlight aircraft are essentially large, flexible wings with a trike unit suspended underneath for the pilot, passenger and engine.

Microlight aircraft are small, light yet surprisingly robust and adaptable and have been flown at altitudes above 30,000 feet and at speeds of up to 290 kmh (180 mph).

Th origins of microlight flying can be traced back to the 1960s when NASA were looking at ways of returning the first space shuttles to earth.

Microlights are now one of the most numerous types of aircraft around and pilot training and trial flights are widely available and less expensive than other forms of powered flight.
