Currently learning to fly a flexi-wing with Gordon and just completed my first solo circuit today (Thanks Gordon).
Excellent training at Eshott in a friendly and easy going environment, great club with lots of support and advice from everyone. Cheers!
I have more than 2200 hours on light aircraft (and a fair number of years on the clock as well!) but wanted to convert on to 3 axis microlight.

Well you are never to old they say to do something new and I agree the family clubbed together to buy me a pleasure flight to celebrate my 80th birthday, The flight was marvellous but to take the controls for 10 minutes or so was the real icing on the cake.
