Micro Lighting Equipment

Micro Lighting equipment depends on the type. The main equipment is, of course, the aircraft itself, which could be a paraglider, parachute, weight shift control trike, hang glider, balloon or a typical fixed wing Aircraft, which is essential a very small and lightweight airplane.

Clothing is important as well, both to protect people from the colder temperature up high in the sky and the possible injuries during a difficult landing.

Layers of light clothing are better than wearing heavy clothes. Wearing a windproof jacket is a good idea because it can get quite cold and windy up there.

Overalls or an all-in-one ski suits are also both appropriate clothing for this type of aviation. When the weather is less cooperative, consider putting on gloves and a waterproof jacket. The right footwear is important, too.

Consider wearing hiking boots or trainers with ankle support as it will protect your feet when landing. Footwear that keeps your feet dry is essential.

Important Information

You are required at all times to wear the appropriate safety equipment, for example protective clothing and / or suitable head protection.

Please also ensure that you hold a full and valid United Kingdom Driving Licence that permits you to use such a vehicle.
