Fly Outs, Meets & Events

The Hampshire Microlight Flying Club is a very active club with many trips throughout the year. These trips vary from ad-hoc day jaunts to weeks away. The daily jaunts to local airfields are generally organised with a pub lunch in mind, so even though in the air this may not be the most social sport, we always bring a social aspect to our days out.

We also plan quite a few weekend trips, and again try and include another event such as canoeing down the River Wye or a BBQ at another aerodrome.

The longer trips obviously require a bit more planning and these are either UK based, normally attending the annual Fly UK trip, or over to Europe, where the favourites are either around France or Germany.

Over the last few years The Hampshire Microlight Club members have flown around France to The Alps and The Pyrenees and have gone as far as Southern Germany to fly around the Bavarian Castles.

Our trips are always organised by members of the club, and the HMFC use Yahoo Groups and WhatsApp to communicate and everyone that is a member can subscribe to these groups to get the latest trips and information that are being organised.
