Microlighting Questions when flying along the North Coast.
Microlighting is an intimate experience. You’re above ever-changing landscape with the Indian Ocean at your feet.
Microgliding is possibly one of the best ways to experience something adventurous, new and exciting. With the wind in your hair, this is hands-down the most amazing way to see our coast.
We offer a variety of flight times ranging between 8min (T&C’s) – 1 hr, depending on how far along the coast you would like to fly. It can be arranged to film an HD copy of your flight which we burn to disc for you while you wait. There is a Shell Ultra City across from us where you may purchase drinks or a snack while at Comefly!. Many Microlighting Questions are asked on the day of the booking. Let’s look through some common ones asked.
