After obtaining an aviation medical/student certificate, completing the minimum period of flight training, passing the FAA written test, and having a successful check ride, a private pilot licence is then issued. The Airplane Single Engine Land category enables you to fly any single engine, fixed gear airplane with less than 200 HP under Visual Flight Rules (VFR) day or night.
Special FAA certification class (LSA) is for an aircraft other than a helicopter or powered-lift—single-engine aircraft, airship, balloon, GLIDER, GYROCOPTER, ROTORCRAFT, weight-shift-control aircraft. While limiting the types of aircraft that could be flown by a Sport Pilot, it simplifies the requirements for a obtaining a pilot license and does not require a medical examination.
An aeronautical vehicle, operated for sport or recreational purposes, that does not require FAA registration, an airworthiness certificate, or pilot certification. Primarily single-occupant vehicles, although some two-place vehicle are authorized for training purposes. Operation of an ultralight vehicle in certain airspaces requires authorisation from ATC.
An ultralight trike is a type of powered hang glider using a high performance Rogallo wing coupled to a propeller-powered three-wheeled undercarriage. Control is via weight-shift and these trikes are available in both single and two places.
We’re planning some Trike flying at Rochelle with luncheon at Flightdeck and then later a Triker movie (Andreas and Doreen’s 100,000 mile trike trip - part 1) followed by pizza on July 2nd. Then more flying, a band, food, beer and fireworks on July 3rd.
Hope you can come and enjoy the chaos!
