Flying Again?

Well after a forced break of over 3 years while I get back on my feet after divorce etc etc. Finally decide its time to fly!!

However big dilemma

*fixed wing microlights or
*light aircraft

Previous flying ~ 15 hours on Cessna 152, loved it despite lots of stress. However now £145/hr plus landing fees, fuel surchage etc etc, exams and need 45 hours… When I get my licence will buy share or hire a plane.

Alternative… Fixed wing microlights, 95/hr only 5 exams and only 25 hours. But will probably have to buy a plane , its possible to hire but rare, then will have associated hangarage costs and maintenance

Comments/thoughts anyone?

Am going to go exploring on Sunday to talk to some experts!

    I’ve noticed, they always take photographs of these daredevils when it is sunny.
