Ultralights are pretty badass. I dont think you need any form of aviation licensure to fly one either.

That look really so wearied, I really don't mean for abusive words but that is very unsophisticated. Doug impressed by your post, like your post.

Ultralights are kickass.

No you don't need a license to operate one because they are so light that they fall under hanglider law essentially, not airplane law according to the FAA

That's why they look like hangliders with engines strapped to them...cause you need to shed all extraneous weight

I've wanted an ultralight for a long time, but now that I can afford one the safety aspect puts me off (+ I currently live at high altitudes where they have a tough time)

Also, if you want to be an FAA ultralight, it has to be a one-seater.

For a really cool option, check out the amphibious ultralights.

For an even more elemental, paired-down approach to flying check out paragliders and powered paragliders.

I remember when I first learned Engrish.
