KENT SCOUTS

MICROLIGHT ADVENTURES

Kent Scouts own and operate a microlight aircraft

We offer Scouts and Explorers an exciting and exillerating experience that sends them blasting down the runway... before the pilot eases forward on his control bar to take them skybound for an unforgettable flight over the Kent countryside.

 

Microlighting is one of the purest forms of aviation, guaranteed to bombard the senses and give an amazing introduction to the joys of flight.

 

Activity Format for Groups and Units

Microlighting is a minimum half-day group activity, requiring a minimum group size of 10 young people.

 

Upon arrival at the airfield, group members will receive a safety brief and introduction to the microlight aircraft.

 

In turn, each participant will don flying suit and helmet and jump aboard into the passenger seat... before embarking on a 10-15 minute air experience flight, climbing several thousand feet above the fields below.

 

While on the ground, the young people will be encouraged to assist with ground support activities. There will also be the the opportunity to look around the hangar to see the variety of private aircraft stored within.

 

Location

We prefer to fly our microlight from its base at Old Hay Airfield near Paddock Wood, Maidstone. Grid ref: TQ695449

 

In some cases - usually larger events - it may be possible to fly from alternative locations.
