M18804 is a British microlight training school that was founded by Gerry Breen and his late wife Manuela in 1985. The School opened for business on 12th March of that year. The Algarve region of Portugal was chosen in order to offer microlight pilots and students the opportunity of flying in one of the most stable weather regions of Europe. Situated in the Azores high-pressure region, it affords a perfect climate for most outdoor activities. Very mild winters and tempered summers due to the cooling sea breezes have made this one of the best flying environments in the world.

You can take a trial flight, a few lessons or a whole course, all instruction is to British National Private Pilots Licence (NPPL) standard and beyond. All tests and examinations can be done with us as we have CAA authorised Examiners on site. This is also the only British Flight Instructor Training School outside the UK. With Gerry’s wife, Karen, running ground operations, Nik Payne as Chief Flying Instructor and Neil Groome as Assistant Flying Instructor, they have gained a reputation for offering a warm, friendly and personal service.
