Clearprop! Microlight School offers everything from one-off air experience flights right through to full training for the NPPL. Also offering both fixed and flex wing microlight aircraft for hire. Easy to reach with locations at Blackbushe Airport, Surrey and Redlands Airfield, Swindon, both of which are within five minutes of the motorway network.
Clearprop! Microlight School was established in 2007 by David Sollom and Angus Lacy-Hulbert, with the aim of providing top quality microlight tuition at a convenient location in the south of England. We chose Redlands Airfield not only for its prime position near major routes, but also for the superb facilities it has, as well as the wonderful atmosphere on the airfield.
There has been a microlight club and part-time school at Redlands since the early 1990’s, with the school part growing steadily over the past few years. Now the school operates on a full-time basis, flying every day that the weather allows.
At Redlands, we have an office and shop, briefing room and large indoor and outdoor seating areas. There is coffee and tea available all the time, and even a small café for hot and cold snacks which is open at weekends.
In 2010 Clearprop expanded with the opening of our second school based at Blackbushe Airport in Surrey. Here we offer exactly the same as at Redlands only in a very different environment. We still have great facilities with briefing rooms, a café etc, but we are operating from an airport with a large tarmac runway with a tower to control our movements. Our students have loved the opportunity to experience both environments during their training meaning once qualified they leave us with the confidence to fly anywhere.
