Soar over the Gauteng countryside with only the tune of the microlight’s engine in your ears as you embark on an excursion with Microlight Adventures. Based near Benoni and Petit in the East Rand of Johannesburg (Gauteng Province), Microlight Adventures offers local South Africans as well as international visitors a really special opportunity to see the land, and breathe in the crisp air as they soar high up over the fauna and flora of South Africa.
Microlight Adventures offers personal, individual flights, which are conducted by one of the top microlight pilots and instructors in the country, Andy Kaspersen. There is a choice of two different microlights. One is a 3-Axis Cheetah, which is an enclosed two-seater plane, while the other is the open-cockpit Aquilla, which is also a two-seater craft. The latter microlight gives the passenger the opportunity to feel free and unhindered, soaring through the air and enjoying breath-taking views.
The views of the East Rand and the magnificent Highveld are incredible, and are best enjoyed from these elevated heights. Features include the farmlands, mountains, hills and dams.
Flights start from 30 minutes long, and can be tailored to suit your needs and requirements. Organising a flight for someone for a special occasion is a fantastic way to spoil them with something a little different.
All of the pilots are experienced and qualified, with plenty of hours in the air. Microlight Adventures also offers training in the 3-Axis aircraft or the Delta Wing trikes, as well as LSA maintenance.
