Sydney Microlight Centre

Sydney Microlight Centre is Sydney's closest approved microlight training facility. Located at Illawarra Regional Airport, Albion Park Rail, just over an hour's drive south of Sydney at the end of the M1 Princes Mototorway. The Illawarra region is the perfect environment in which to learn to fly. The stunning scenery, beaches, Lake Illawarra and the escarpment as a backdrop are some of the most beautiful views in Australia.

They usually fly out over Lake Illawarra, down the coast past all the fantastic beaches towards Kiama then back through the Jamberoo Valley if conditions and time allow. Alternatively, out to the coast and then northwards following the beaches, towards Wollongong and return. Either way, there is no better aircraft for sightseeing than the microlight.

Flights last about 36 to 40 minutes. They provide helmets, headset and intercom. Bring a warm jacket and gloves, in case the day turns cold.
