Flying is an experience like no other. Whether you are in a plane or a helicopter or even paragliding, having the opportunity to fly is an experience you will never forget. There are so many breath-taking flight experiences available in South Africa and Celestial Gift Experiences has some of the top flying adventures on offer. From microlight flights and helicopter flights to hot air balloon experiences and skydiving as well as introductory microlight lessons – they have it all.
One of these spectacular flying experiences is the scenic coastal microlight flight valued at R650, which takes place in the KZN North Coast at the Groutville airfield. “Enjoy this spectacular coastal experience flight and enjoy an awesome aerial view between Ballito and the Tugela River Mouth”. The microlight flights depart from Groutville Airfield and then take you on an unforgettable experience along the coastline. You will need to wear a flight jumpsuit and a safety brief will be given to you before take-off. “The microlight is completely open so clients will enjoy fresh air, sun and the ultimate exhilaration of appreciating the surrounding scenery”. As if this isn’t amazing enough you might even feel the refreshing sea spray as the waves break beneath you. Flying in a microlight plane with a beautiful view of the ocean (and even the possibility of spotting some dolphins and whales) is an experience that won’t leave you feeling disappointed.
The history of micro lighting dates back to the late 1970s and early 1980s when affordable flying experiences were in big demand. As a result, many aviation experts set out to create a lightweight, slow-flying airplane – the result was the ultra light or micro light plane. In wealthier countries, micro lights or ultra lights account for about 20% of the civil aircraft fleet. Initially, microlight planes were used for local area flying, but today, microlight planes are considered a high performance aircraft, reaching higher speeds and range. According to Celestial Gift Experiences, “In recent years there has been a dramatic rise in the number of General Aviation pilots flying high performance ultra lights due to the cost benefits”.
Celestial Gift Experiences also offers an introductory microlight flight for only R499, which includes a 30 minute introductory flight over the Cullinan district countryside. “Relax and absorb the peaceful nature of the African cliffs and bush and experience the ultimate with a micro light flight!” What a wonderful gift this micro lighting experience would make for a birthday or even as a corporate gift.
If you have a passion for flying and you want to fly a microlight plane then you are sure to find a microlight school in South Africa that can give you the microlight flight experience of your dreams. Go on…take that leap…you are guaranteed an adventure of a life time.
