Tour 'n Train in the UK

microlight in flight

One of the most exciting aspects of flying a microlight is the ability to go touring.

Learn to Fly has invested in the PulsR, "P&M's grand tourer!"

Over the course of 2022 we will be developing itineraries involving multi day trips allowing you to tour and train in the worlds best flex-wing.

Popham Airfield to the Scilly Isles

Flying to St. Mary's from Popham Airfield via Lands End

A beautiful coastal trip taking in the south coast of England, the Jurassic Coast of Dorset, the estuaries of Devon, down into the craggy coast of Cornwalll and a refuelling at Lands End airport. We then cross over to St. Mary's airport on the Scillies.

The following day, we fly back to Lands End and along the north coast of Devon and stopping after 3 hours or so on Lundy, the island about 10 miles out to sea in the Bristol channel. We can then cross over the Bristol Channel, routing west along the southern Welsh coast to Swansea and the Gower Pensinsular.

This stunning coastal flight is hard to match! From Swansea we push on to Haverford West and the awesome western southern tip of Wales in time to refuel and recharge our batteries.

Depending on the weather we can bunk down for the night in a friendly pub and BnB or camp (these decision gets made according to weather, time of year and budget!)

Haverford West to Caernarfon

A flight north now takes up the Welsh coast to Caernarfon. A number of landing possibilities are en route but we finish our flight at Caernarfon having seen the breath-taking escarpment of Cader Idirs, and if conditions allow a close up of the beautiful northern Welsh mountains and Snowdonia.

A local bus ride into Caernarfon is available and there are a number of friendly hotels and BnB's to stay at and one of the oldest castles in England built in the 12c by Edward 3rd.

Caernarfon back to Popham

A return flight to Popham can take 3-4 hours.

For the fit and active a hike up Snowdon is highly recommend and your instructor Ian will be encouraging you to stretch your legs. An extra day will be needed! Tour n Train is as much about things to do on the ground whilst your touring, than getting round the route in the quickest possible time. Always allow a few extra days as the British weather can make for an interesting day's flying, and in some cases it will mean being stuck in one place untill it improves.
