One of the reasons why microlight flying has become so popular in recent years is that it's much cheaper to train for and maintain a NPPL-microlight licence than a conventional light aircraft licence. Less hours to do, cheaper medicals and much cheaper fuel costs.
Pre-fight briefings are an essential part of flight training. We give these free of charge with every flight training hour taken. As a result, each lesson lasts for approximately 1.5 hours, but you only pay for the aircraft flight times.
