Microlight Flight Training Herefordshire

Go microlighting over lovely Herefordshire! Based at the bustling Shobdon Airfield this microlight flight training school and club is a brilliant place to go flying in either flex or fixed-wing microlight aircraft. We’ve got a full range of experiences for you so have a read and see which takes your fancy!

First up are your classic microlight taster lessons. This Herefordshire school is offering 30 and 60-minute flights for you. In both cases you’ll see the superb scenery around this lovely corner of the county including Clee Hill and the Marches as well as having time to have a go at the controls yourself. For these lessons you can choose between a fixed and flex-wing microlight.

If you can’t decide then why not go for the flex and fixed combination voucher? You get a 30-minute flight in a trike-style open cockpit flex-wing microlight and another 30-minute blast in the skies above Shobdon in a closed-cockpit fixed-wing microlight. This gives you the ‘back to basics’ feel of the P&M GT450 flex-wing and the modern comforts of the fixed wing Ikarus C42 all rolled into one thrilling experience.

Those wanting to clock up some miles in their microlight after taking off from Shobdon will love the landaway experience. You head off to another airfield in the vicinity somewhere like Welshpool Halfpenny Green or Broad Farm. After landing there you’ll have time for a cuppa in the club house cafe and then head back on your return leg. It’s two flights in one aerial adventure. Once again you can pick flex or fixed wing for these landaways.

Back at base you can visit the on-site cafe and watch the action. There are always lots of arrivals and departures with parachuting gliding helicopters and light aircraft operators as well as this microlight school calling Shobdon home. There’s even a camping and caravan site nestled next to the cider apple orchards at the aerodrome (and some lovely pubs within walking distance) so you can make a weekend of microlighting in Herefordshire.
