What is considered an Ultralight?

In 20 years, the ultralight has passed the experimental state and is being built in series, studied by engineers and tested exhaustedly in France by the aeronautic industry in Toulouse.

The Ultralights are limited to carry two persons and the restrictions compared to normal aviation are simplified. This brings a user-friendliness that no other aircraft can offer.

In France we distinguish 5 types of ultralights :

Class 1 (motorised parachutes)

 
An ultralight motorised parachute is an aircraft suspended by a flexibel parachute type matras. It complies to the following technical conditions:

Class 2 (weight shift trike)

  
An ultralight weight shift trike is an aercraft suspended by a tissue clothed rigid frame under which there is normally a motorized carriage fixed.

Class 3 (fixed wing)

   
A fixed wing ultralight is an aircraft with a fixed wing and commands equal to normal aircraft. Both weight shift trikes and fixed wing ultralights comply to the following technical conditions:

Class 4 (ultralight autogiro)


An ultralight autogiro complies to the following technical conditions:

Classe 5 (ultralight balloon)


An ultralight balloon complies to the following technical conditions:

Sub-classes 1 A, 2 A et 3 A of classes 1,2 or 3


(with external engine) The ultralights with external engines comply to the following technical conditions: The machines are registered by the Civil aviation and are being driven by engines of aeronautical design produced in large numbers. The Ultralight is now an establihed part of aviation which does not have anything to envy compared to "normal" aircraft from a safety point of view and wotkload capacities.
