Exactly my thoughts when I watched the video yesterday. I understand it is probably quite expensive to produce, which is a shame, because if it were a lot cheaper, they'd sell gazzilions of them!Carbon fiber Corsair. Fabric cover. Yes very cool, but most expensive ultralight ever?
Well, he said it met FAR103. I guess he meant it meets the weight criteria and single seat criteria. But the speed criteria is not mentioned. Quite a few ultralights don't meet the speed criteria and the FAA doesn't enforce that (according to EAA).Not a FAR103 ultralight.
No. But EAA said you might want to stay with only 5 gallons fuel.For that matter they don't enforce weight limits either. Ever know anyone to get busted for an overweight UL?
We all know the airport/aviation community often contains people who might be considered "special needs", including the FAA.....I believe it is best to try to stay close to the regulations, because a complaint is just one "cut off" in the pattern away.I think the FAA tries to turn a blind eye unless they are pushed into action by complaints or an accident report.
