Marcus is the School´s Chief flying instructor. He started flying hang gliders at the age of 18 and still does to this day. Since 1997 Marcus has been working as a full time microlight instructor. He now has over 5,200 hours on both fixed and flexwing aircraft and has numerous qualifications to his name; member of the BMAA panel of examiners, CAA examiner, microlight inspector, flying instructor course instructor, BHPA senior coach, airframe and Rotax service engineer.Marcus is always keen to take on new challenges and this is why he expanded his company Pegasus Scotland and created Pegasus France in 2000. Marcus qualified this year as a French instructor in both fixed wing and flexwing microlights.
Simon first got into aviation when he was 12 years old. After a few lessons on a Cessna 150 he decided that flying would be an important part of his future. At the age of 25 he dabbled with gliding before taking the plunge into microlighting. After gaining his licence in 2000, he became a regular flyer at Insch, Nr Aberdeen and later at Perth Airport.

As a keen pilot Simon gained his JAR PPL and night rating, but eventually decided to stick with microlights and to become an instructor. Whilst working for Pegasus France he has become a knowledgable instructor with over 2500 hours of training experience in both flex and fixed wing aircraft.

Recently Simon has taken up hang gliding and enjoys soaring over the local mountains on his time off.

Your course will involve one to one tuition on a rotation basis with an aim to getting the whole group around the Hautes Alpes region including Meribel, Alpe de Huez, Courchevel and many of the altisurfaces .

We can help with your routing from the UK to make fuel stops easy and will take care of your needs on your arrival. The flying is quite intensive and sorties vary from two to four hours per day. We will endeavour to take photos of your daily activities and place them on our blog the same day so as your friends and family can keep up with what you are up to.
