All these years later we should be able to identify the specific makes and modelsI did not intend to, nor did I, assert that the majority of crashes were due to structural failures. Most crashes of aircraft are due to pilot error, so I would be surprised if ultralights were different.
I don’t have reliable data to make a case either way, and I do wonder about the validity of some of the ultralight crash reports from years ago, but I do know of five different new design ultralights shown at Oshkosh that had structural failures that led to fatalities. But, as I suggested above, there were plenty of other reasons, too.
and hopefully the reasons why they were unsafe. Would you please share with us
the five new design ul's that had fatal structural failures that were the result of design
flaws or inadequacies. This info should be kept alive because there still must be thousands upon thousands of ULs in storage all across the land.
