Famous the World over for our dramatic scenery there is no better country to experience from the air.

Here are a few FAQ's on what to expect during your flight experience:

  • I HAVE BEEN GIVEN A VOUCHER FOR A FLIGHT WITH KERNAN FLYING SCHOOL, WHAT DO I DO NOW?

    • Excellent news! You are in for an exciting, unforgettable experience! All you have to do now is contact the telephone number on the front of the voucher and arrange a date and time to suit.

  • WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY?

    • When you arrive for your flight, after a warm welcome you will be given a pre-flight safety briefing by your pilot one of our Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved instructors. During the flight there will be an opportunity to fly the aircraft yourself and find out what it's really like to be in control of this beautiful aircraft in flight.

    • Be sure to bring a camera to capture the spectacular views and to make the most of this exhilarating experience.

  • WHAT IS A MICROLIGHT & HOW FAST DOES IT FLY?

    • A microlight is a powered aircraft build within the following definition - maximum all up weight allowable 450 kgs for a two seat aircraft- UNFORTUNATELY THIS MEANS THE MAXIMUM WEIGHT AS A PASSENGER IS 16 STONES.

    • Most microlights fly at speeds between 70 & 80 mph but the newer designs of fixed wing microlights fly at similar speeds as light aircraft up to 150mph in some cases.

  • WHAT TYPE OF AIRCRAFT WILL I BE FLYING IN?

    • Here at Kernan we use the German built Ikarus C42. This is a top of the range microlight which is known as the BMW of the skies. This aircraft is fully enclosed and is equipped with a heater so that even on the coldest day you can come for your flight dressed in normal attire. You really will have an experience to remember! Don't forget your camera or camcorder!

  • IS MICROLIGHT FLYING SAFE?

    • Microlight flying is no more dangerous than driving – we would much prefer to fly than drive.

    • All our aircraft are built by Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) approved companies to a very high airworthiness standard and undergo a very rigorous annual MOT like inspection, by CAA approved inspectors.

    • All our gift vouchers flights are flown by our microlight instructors who are highly trained professionals who must revalidate their ratings every three years, therefore you are in the safest possible hands.
