Forget the EasyJet to Alicante, the really romantic way to fly is from the front seat of a microlight soaring over majestic Highland scenery.
Sure, there’s no snack trolley, but this is a unique way to get a bird’s-eye perspective on Scotland’s glorious scenery.
Today’s Big Deal from Into The Blue takes you sky high with a choice of microlight flight experiences from Balado Park Airfield. With everything provided from flight suit to headset, you’ll join your experienced pilot for an unforgettable flight over Perthshire.
You’ll even get the chance to take the controls.
Touch the clouds
The Big Deal offers a choice of microlight experiences, allowing you to opt for a short flight taster or for a lengthier time in the sky.
Option one is for one person to have a 20 minute microlight flight from Balado Park Airfield.
Option two is for one person to have a 30 minute microlight flight.
Option three is for one person to have a 60 minute microlight flight.
Note that all flight times are measured from chock to chock as we old aviation hands say (that means taxi, take-off and landing are included in the timings).
All safety equipment and flight clothing are included with the offer.
Ready for take off
After an initial safety briefing and a chat about the aircraft you will be using, it’s time to don the helmet and flying suit and hop aboard.
You take the front seat, with a headset to maintain radio contact with the pilot over the noise of the rotor blades.
During the course of your flight, you will have the chance to take the controls and discover just how sporty and reactive the microlights can be.
There are plenty of opportunities for sightseeing from the sky, and the longer the duration, the further towards the likes of Stirling, the Wallace Monument, Falkland Palace and the Strathearn valley near Perth you’ll get.
All year round flights mean it is possible to enjoy views over snow-capped mountains on a crisp and clear winter’s morning, or soak up the last of the summer sun on an evening flight in July.
