In a word, microlighting is freedom! Freedom to escape the mundane routine of life, the traffic jams, the confines of conventional flying. You do not need all the facilities of larger aeroplanes, the training or qualifications for a full private pilots licence, or a huge bankroll to pay for it all. Any fair sized paddock can be your aerodrome and your garage can be your hangar.

Looked a bit rough diving down the driveway but after that the whole experience was amazing. Everything was explained very well, took off and flew over the Central Coast. I got to control the microlight for most of the flight. I recommend this for anyone with any sence of adventure at all.

This was a birthday surprise for my wife. She was excited the moment we turned into the driveway & the sign gave away what she was going to do. Len was waiting for us & gave the intro talk with safety instructions before the donning of the supplied flight overalls. Pre flight rundown over the headset when Lesley was sitting... More

Microlight Adv came highly recommended to me as the ultimate to-do on the coast, they didn't disappoint. Len was excellent, very knowledgeable, informative and professional. My son has a fantastic record of his flight on DVD and an unforgettable experience. Excellent value for money, couldn't recommend it more highly. Will definitely be back to have a flight myself very soon.... More

What an amazing experience. The take off is the most amazing feeling ever! I felt 100% safe with Len, who was so comforting, knowledgable and humble. And even though I was the last flight of the day, he still sat down afterwards and told me his stories over tea and biscuits. Such value for money. Getting to fly the plane... More

An absolutely amazing experience, highly recommended. Len really knew his stuff, the opportunity to fly the aircraft over the ocean was unforgettable! Time it right and you may be lucky enough to see some whales like we did today!

Our son had the experience of a life time for his 16th birthday with his Microlight adventure. Len was fantastic, really friendly and extremely professional. An amazing flight out over Tuggerah Lakes then tracking down the coast line and back over Brisbane Waters. Can't recommend it enough 5 Stars all the way.
