From powered parachutes and trikes to traditional fixed wings and rotorcraft, flying an ultralight means having some of the most accessible, affordable, and exhilarating experiences that aviation has to offer.
Ultralight flying represents one of the fastest and purest ways to experience the joys of aviation. From powered-parachutes and trikes to traditional fixed wings and even amphibians and rotorcraft, ultralights are fun, exciting, and in most cases, remarkably affordable. Flying ultralights is not a step up or down, but a step into a completely different and exciting sector of the flying community.
In the U.S., flying an ultralight doesn't require a license or a medical certificate of any kind, providing the aircraft meets the Federal Aviation Regulation called Part 103. Part 103 defines an ultralight as an aircraft that meets the following criteria:
Max. Empty Weight (Powered Aircraft)
Max. Empty Weight (Unpowered Aircraft)
Max. Fuel Capacity
Max. Speed @ Full Power
Max. Stall Speed (Power Off)
If the aircraft has more than 1-seat or exceeds any of the above criteria, it's not an ultralight, and thus not eligible for operation under Part 103.
These are the legal rules by which we fly; they are the most lenient in the world. These privileges, however, carry responsibilities: while there are no specific legal requirements, ultralight pilots must be trained just like any other pilot.
Serving the needs of and representing EAA members involved in ultralight and light sport aviation.
