Airplay Aviation is a flexwing microlight training school based at Sutton Meadows airfield, near Ely in Cambridgeshire. Ideally based in the flatlands of Fenland, Airplay is the closest microlight training school to Cambridge itself, and easily accessible from the A1(M) and A14. Many students also travel to us from as far afield as Norfolk, Suffolk, Northamptonshire, Bedfordshire, Essex, Hertfordshire and even London.
We offer trial flight air experiences, with gift vouchers available for that unique and unforgettable Christmas or birthday present. For those who wish to learn to fly a microlight aircraft, Airplay can take the budding student pilot from their first lesson all the way through to obtaining their Private Pilots Licence.
Airplay is operated by Chief Flying Instructor David Broom, who is the current World Air Games Microlight Champion. David has been flying since the age of 8, and his microlighting achievements include winning the British Championship two years running, numerous medals at World & European championships and holding two World Microlight Speed Records. You can be sure that you will be receiving training from one of the very best in the business.
October 2016: After spending the summer managing Sandown Airport on the Isle of Wight, I have decided to return to full-time flight training at Sutton Meadows. I missed flying too much! A new website is under development, but in the meantime please get in touch if you would like a trial flight gift voucher or even take up lessons.
