Sure, you've flown in a seaplane. And there was that time you jumped out of a plane for a dare. But have you ever skimmed past the clouds in a two-person light aircraft with an open cockpit and minimal controls? Microlighting is probably not as terrifying as it sounds, and in an intimate 15-minute flight ($100 for groups) you could be spotting whales from an impressive height, while also catching glimpses of national parks and surfers in the distance.
Taking off from Somersby Airfield, Microlight Adventures operates flights over Central Coast's 42 beaches every week. And to make the most of it, opt for the $250 flight and you'll join a qualified flying instructor for a full hour of soaring above the sights.
