Durham Tees Valley Airport sets up microlight school

An airport in County Durham has set up a new microlight flying school, after a rise in popularity for the hobby.

It comes as Durham Tees Valley Airport in Darlington is losing money and seeing passenger numbers fall.

Instructors say flying a microlight can be a route into professional piloting and airport bosses hope the new school will help it become a centre for aviation.
