What about this... bring back the previous exemption and specifically allow experimental "fat ultralights" or previously "illegal" two seat ultralights to be used for flight instruction WITHIN LIMITS, including the limits that govern Part 103 ultralights such as not over populated areas, day VFR only, and limited to basic flight instruction to be used ONLY for that pilot to operate a Part 103 UL. Meaning that an experimental cannot be used to train for Sport Pilot or Private Pilot licensure. Do not allow these exempted UL trainers to compete with LSA or PPL operators, and make an enforceable policy that this is simply a basic instructional tool to make "operators" of Part 103 ultralights able to safely fly. If they want to progress on to a Sport Pilot or PPL, they have to go through the entire process for that separately.
