New C42 Microlight

The Sandtoft Flying School C42 has finally arrived at the distributers in the UK and is being fitted with its avionic equipment. It will have a full glass panel with backup analogue instruments, a Mode S Transponder and 8.3Khz Com. It is fitted with a ballistic parachute recovery system and uses Mogas.

Virtually unstallable and with a very low approach speed it will be an ideal learner platform. We will offer Microlight rental immediately and shortly afterwards Microlight training.

New Base at Sandtoft

We have opened a new base for aircraft maintenance at Sandtoft, which with its 4000' long tarmac runway will allow us to service faster aircraft.
