Who can fly
an ultralight ?
Almost anyone. You must be over 15, be medically fit to drive a motorvehicle and hold an AUF Pilot Certificate. Ground and flight trainingfrom an approved facility could see you passing the test for the Pilot Certificate in as little as 20 hours of flying. If you already have flying experience, some of this can be counted towards your pilot certificate.
all-metal -easy to assemble, economical, tough all season aircraft, it performs equally well
on wheels, ski or floats. Its wide 44 inch or 1.2m cabin
with side by side seating on adjustable seats affords
even a 6 ft or 1.8m plus pilot a comfortable ride.
We use only Aviation Approved 2024-T3, 6061-T6 aluminium and 4130 steel. Specialty parts are pre- formed and welded. Constructed with pop and solid rivets, this aircraft is one of the most robust and sturdy homebuilts flying today.
