This is the ultimate adventurous introductory flight over the stunning nature surrounding Reykjavík. The aircraft is a two-seater, slow flying “Ultralight” aircraft, able to fly low over the ground. The wings are overhead and the windows open fully, giving you a perfectly unhindered view of the ground below. Be prepared for an unparalleled experience and photographic view! You will go in tandem with a fully qualified and experienced Ultralight Aircraft Instructor.

We recommend this introductory flight as a great way to experience the freedom of flight and the beauty of Reykjavík, Iceland from above. From a unique point of view, with a local free flight instructor.

WEATHER & CHANGES: Please bear in mind that a Flying buggy – ultralight is highly reliable on weather. We always put safety first and if weather does not co-operate we will offer you a re-schedule, an alternative or a full refund. Flying buggy weather is not necessarily the same as what non-pilots call good weather. We rely on meteorology and need to take different factors into account, like prevailing wind at height, wind on take-off and landing, wind direction, predicted changes as well as the effects of sun, sea breeze and the landscape. With Iceland being a very small island on the brink of the Arctic Circle weather can change faster than anything you’ve seen before. Please make sure we have your email and phone number and make sure to check for any communication from us before heading out. Should we need to make changes to the schedule due to weather we will strive to let you know as soon as possible.

A Ultralight Flight is a legitimate Introductory flight operated by licensed and experienced Flight Instructor pilots.
