Airsports Training is a "Centre of Excellence" in microlight pilot and instructor training and has successfully trained hundreds of microlight pilots and scores of instructors in our 25 year history. Our highly professional but friendly and enthusiastic instructors are all approved by the Civil Aviation Authority and their goal is to equip you with the skills and knowledge to operate a microlight aircraft legally and safely.
THE BEST INSTRUCTORS
JOHN TEESDALE: Chief Flying Instructor John Teesdale is one of the most experienced instructors in the UK. He has over 10,000 hours of training pilots and instructors over a 25 year career and is one of the 8 “Examiners of Flying Instructors” in the UK that make up the BMAA Panel of Examiners.
John says “I had always wanted to learn to fly but thought I couldn't afford it. I tried all branches of flying - conventional light aircraft; way too expensive, tatty old aeroplanes, indifferent instructor every time. Gliding; interesting but you can't choose where you go, can't land and come back. Can't take passengers, very restricting.
Then I discovered microlights and what a revelation! Affordable, go where you want – and for me the most important bit , massive enthusiasm from the instructors! What did they do on their days off? They went flying their microlights! Total no-brainer. Been hooked ever since.”
ALAN GULLIVER: Flying Instructor, learned to fly with John Teesdale then trained to become an instructor. (Also with John) Alan teaches on both flexwing and fixed-wing aircraft, and also flies light aircraft including aerobatics!
MIKE POOLE: Assistant flying instructor, Mike also learned to fly with John Teesdale. He built his own microlight, then also trained with John to become an instructor! He teaches on fixed wing only.
THE BEST FACILITIES

With top class facilities and a track record of success second to none, you could not find a better place to learn to fly.
