Mike Leonard, the owner and pilot has 1300 hours PPL (Private pilots licence since 1996). He has about 900 hours on type and has most generously offered to contribute to the charities, the same amount as whoever wins the bid. For the record Mike has an accident free flying history. He has flown most of his friends (those that meet the weight restriction!), all of who have found it a thrilling experience. There is a weight restriction of 80kg for the passenger – Peter Tawell would not qualify as a passenger!


The trip would take place from Pamiers aerodrome and the flight route would be subject to mutual agreement between Mike and the successful bidder. Weather dependent, a flight over Andorra or down the Cerdanya valley could be options.


The successful bidder would be required to sign an indemnification document prior to the flight.


The aircraft: Dynaero Sportster MCR01. 2 place side by side, MTOW 490kgs, empty weight 249kg (ie very small, but not a Microlight). It is a kit plane built 50% in the factory in Dijon and the other 50% by VPN Technoligies in 2006. Finished and maintained by yours truly - t is in the experimental category.

The minimum bid for this experience is €100
