Flying microlights for over
Welcome to Mainair Microlight Centre, the leading microlight flying school in the North West. Here at Mainair we can cater for everything you will need, from a trial flight to your complete NPPL microlight licence.
We have been flying microlights for over 30 years and have travelled all over the world. I have flown across Florida, including flying down the runway at Nasa's Cape Canaveral, the Space Shuttle landing strip. We have flown around Europe on many occasions in the past including Belgium, France, Spain, Italy.
I flew a microlight I built myself from Manchester to Madrid and back to Manchester solo in 1995.
In 2005 I flew from John'O'Groats to Lands End, and then back to John'O'Groats, solo in 1 day. This was the first time this flight had been done.
In 2008 I flew over Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, which is the highest free standing mountain in the world and stands at 19,341ft. On the expedition we broke the world altitude record for a two seat microlight. We managed 24,262ft. You can watch the flight over Kilimanjaro by clicking There are 3 videos in total.
