Microlight Taster Flight, Oban

  • Enjoy a flight in a flex wing microlight
  • Take control and fly it yourself
  • The best way to view the West Coast of Scotland

Take to the skies in a flex wing microlight and see the beautiful sights on the West Coast of Scotland. If you are feeling confident you’ll also be able to take control of the aircraft and fly yourself!

Upon arrival at the airport, you’ll be met by your instructor who will go through a full safety briefing with you and introduce you to your aircraft. Modern flex wing microlights are capable of speeds up to 100 MPH and are extremely safe and reliable, offering great handling characteristics and safety. You’ll be provided with a flying suit, gloves, balaclava if required, and a headset.

In this 30 minute trial flight you’ll be shown around the local area with a brief introduction to flight controls. Typical routes are from Oban to the Head of Loch Etive, taking in the four castles surrounding Oban.

Once you are airborne and relaxed the instructor will demonstrate how to fly the aircraft. You’ll be invited to take control and from then on you can do as much of the flying as you like! Alternatively you are welcome to sit back and enjoy the flight and the stunning views. Don’t forget to bring your camera!

This is a truly amazing experience that is lots of fun and guaranteed to provide unforgettable memories!
