OUR FIXED WING AIRCRAFT

Eurostar SL Microlight – “G-FLYJ”

Used as our primary training aircraft, this is the latest and most luxurious model of the successful EV97 microlight and comes complete with glass cockpit panel and ballistic recovery parachute. The Eurostar is a modern high-performance microlight with extremely smooth and responsive handling.

Truly a pilot’s aeroplane, the Eurostar is powered by the well-proven and reliable 80hp Rotax 912 engine.  This engine gives you outstanding power-to-weight ratio, enabling a cruise speed of around 100 mph, yet still retaining the short field characteristics of more traditional microlights. You will discover that the aircraft is a delight to fly with outstanding all-round visibility and an effective cabin heater. 

As well as being our training aircraft, we also offer G-FLYJ for hire to qualified pilots who are members of the Scottish Aero Club at an hourly rate of £105 wet, giving you the convenience and availability of a high-end aircraft without the large financial outlay.

EV97 Eurostar Microlight “G-CFNW”

We know that the EV97 Eurostar microlight is a true favourite amongst our pilots, and we offer this trusty steed for hire to qualified pilots who are members of the Scottish Aero Club at an hourly rate of £95 wet.  This gives you the convenience and availability of a high-end aircraft without the large financial outlay.

You can hire November Whiskey per the hour or day, so feel free to get in touch to book.
