Mark , Declan, Garry and Richard are all learning to fly at Northern Ireland Microlights and these four are thinking well ahead to when the get their own Flying Licenses . So , they grouped together to buy their own Microlight which is pictured next to the rather chuffed looking owners. The aircraft is a Jabiru 450 and is in super condition . No doubt airfields throughout the UK and Ireland will be seeing alot of this Microlight and its owners in the months and years to come.…

Kimmo goes solo.

Tue, May 23, 2017

The happy looking Pilot in the cockpit of G CGFZ has just completed his first Solo Flight after and incredible 6hours 20 minutes training. Kimmo ( apparently a Finnish name) has hundreds of hours logged on a Flight Simulator but had never flown the real thing until two weeks ago. He was not detered by the fact the the Thruster did not appear to have an abort/reset button on the control panel and completed his first solo on 23/5/2017.…


Hi Ken,

I hope you’re keeping well!

Just wanted to let you know you can add one more to the list of Fast Jet pilots you have trained! Out of 19 students being streamed after elementary flying training, 6 of us were selected for fast jet! I definitely wouldn’t have been in that top 6 without the training you gave me back home, so many thanks once again! Still plenty of work ahead but glad it’s going in the direction I wanted!

I don’t start my next stage of training until the summer so going to put my NPPL to good use with the RAF Microlight Association in the meantime!
