Light Sport Planes and Microlighting have fast become a vibrant and energetic form of flight.
Microlighting has come a long way since the late 1970's when simple undercarriages were added to hang glider wings. These single seater aircraft did not require licensing until 1984 when the Department of Civil Aviation noticed the Microlight. Shortly after, in 1987, Geoff Dyer moved down from Botswana to Durban with the aim of setting up a Microlight training school.
Geoff based himself at Cato Ridge Airfield and in 1988 was awarded Air Services Licence G205D. It was at this stage that Geoff had the only full-time Microlight School in KwaZulu Natal. In 1990, a 200 acre farm on the Georgedale Road in Cato Ridge, just off the highway between Pietermaritzburg and Durban, was discovered, purchased and transformed into a permanent base for a Microlight Flying School. Light Flight was born.
Light Flight Farm
Light Flight Farm was purchased in 1991, primarily as a base for Light Flight Flying School and Light Flight Flying Services. The farm is 200 acres in extent, consisting mainly of grasslands. There are 2 registered springs and a stream with indigenous trees. There are resident small antelope such as Grey Duiker and Oribi with occasional sightings of Bushbuck and Reedbuck.
