Our experience of Microlight flying Bangalore

Piloted by Captain Aravind, you get to be the co-pilot of the micro light that takes you 4000 feet above the ground level. There are times where the captain lets you take over the plane and try your hands on the shaft.

The best part is that the flying experience offers a fantastic aerial and bird’s eye view of an early morning scenes of North Bangalore, and the beautiful lakes surrounding the aerodrome.

My friend Akshata from ‘Dialog with life

Akshata, my friend said “Initially, I was apprehensive, but as soon as I held the steering shaft I felt a rush of adrenaline. And the sense of thrilling control which cannot be expressed completely in words. At the end of it, I felt the 5 minutes ride was too short and wanted more time up air.”

My experience

The best moment for me was the sudden acrobatic drop that Captain Aravind did. The story was that he asked me to scream up air at the top of my voice, to which I refused instantly. So in order to make me scream, he plunged the flight out of a sudden pumping up my blood through my veins. It was an amazing feeling. And I agree with Akshata that the experience could have been a little longer.
