The Hampshire Microlight Flying Club was formed in the late 1970s by Mark Henson who became the Chief Flying Instructor (CFI) of the club and taught many of the current senior club members to fly.
They were flying lightweight aircraft which were based on the flexwing hang glider design with a small 2 stroke motor attached. Since then the aircraft we fly have improved significantly both in safety and in performance. Modern aircraft are able to cruise in excess of 100mph and have a range of 4 hours or more before needing to be refueled.
The Hampshire Microlight Club serves to bring the wealth of experience gained by members of the club over the years together in one place for the benefit of all. Our aim is to promote a friendly and safe environment for members new and old to enjoy the freedom of the skies.
