Overview
More
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.

You depart from the airfield in Somersby and fly overland to the Entrance then along the coast to Terrigal then inland to Gosford and finally returning to the airfield. Fantastic views and a great commentary from the great pilot - Len
