Roy Clarkson's First Solo flight.

Wed, Oct 18, 2017

Roy Clarkson has been waiting for several weeks for the fog to clear and the hurricanes to shuffle past the airfield at Newtowards so that he could embark upon his first solo flight. Today (18/10/2017) his long awaited opportunity arrived and he happily grabbed his first solo using Runway 15. It was a smooth landing and we’ll worth waiting for. Congratulations Roy.

Damien Martin and son Tom go solo on the same day.

Fri, Oct 6, 2017

Like Father, like Son !! Damien Martin and his son Tom are both learning to fly at Northern Ireland Microlights and it is probably not a coincidence that they both achieved their First Solo flights in the school Thruster on the same day (6/10/2017). It was only fair that dad went first and while he was quietly celebrating 16 year old son Tom proved that he could do it just as well. Congratulations to both . Mum and the Instructor were well impressed.

Tim Gallagher Passes the General Skills Test

Sun, Sep 24, 2017

Tim Gallagher owns a vehicle recovery business and has been known to give a lift home to the odd winged vehicle that got stranded away from it’s home airfield. On 24/9/2017 Tim passed his General Skills Test in the School Thruster with flying colours and will soon be flying about in his own aircraft . So if Tim gets himself stranded away from his home airfield he won’t even need to make a phone call. Congratulations Tim Gallagher and welcome to that ancient order of Qualified Microlighters .


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!

The trial lesson was great fun, flew the entire time, thanks Ken.
