Instructor Jim Lister will answer all your questions when it comes to fixed wing training in Scotland.
Who can learn to fly a microlight aircraft?
Anyone. Individuals who are reasonably fit and within the weight limits.
How much will it cost to complete the course?
The average student will spend from £3000 to £4000 to complete the full course of training.
Students are charged for flight lessons based on ‘engine time’ (from engine start to engine stop). The current rate for a 1 hour lesson on a school aircraft is £135 for fixed wing aircraft.
All flight lessons include a pre-flight classroom briefing that will cover theoretical and practical elements of the upcoming air exercise. The pre-flight brief takes approx 30 –40 minutes and there is no charge for this classroom briefing.
There are also nominal administration and processing charges for each exam when taken. Where a student feels he needs supplemental ground school tutoring, this can also be arranged on an hourly paid basis.
