Learn to Fly
Ever wonder what its like to fly an ultralight? Heres
your chance to experience the feel of soaring through the air
like a Florida pelican. Our ultralight flight instructor will
take you on a scenic introductory flight along Floridas
Gulf Coast. Find out whats involved in becoming an ultralight
sport pilot as well as the mechanics and aerodynamics of the flying
trike. It wont take you long to understand why trike flying
is one of the most popular air sports in Europe. Choose a one
or two hour orientation flight.
The Location: Our flight operations are based at Airport
Manatee, located one exit south of the Florida Sunshine Skyway
Bridge. The airport is just a short drive from Sarasota, Bradenton,

What should I wear? We recommend jeans or other comfortable
long pants and tennis shoes or other closed-toe shoes. No sandals
or flip-flops are permitted. Riding in an ultralight trike is
very similar to riding on the back of a motorcycle. We will supply
you with a helmet to wear during your flight and a windbreaker.
Sunglasses are optional. If you plan to take your camera on the
flight, you will need to have it on a secure camera strap. No
loose items (keys, coins, etc.) are permitted in your pants or
shirt pockets during the flight for safety reasons. Anything dropped
from a hand or pocket in the air could prove to be a hazard to
you, people below and/or the trike.
Are there any restrictions? You must be at least 16 years
old. If you are extremely tall or weigh more than 200 pounds,
please let us know when scheduling so we can make sure our ultralight
can accommodate you. There are additional restrictions based on
type of intro flight and general physical condition, which can
be discussed prior to the flight.
Who is the pilot? We have three different pilots. All
are authorized by the Aero Sports Connection to provide basic
Is this safe? Everything in life has risk, including learning
to fly an ultralight. Ultralights and ultralight pilots are not
regulated by the FAA and no insurance covers these flights. You

When are flights available? The best months to fly are
April through July, when winds are most favorable. Flights are
generally scheduled early in the morning or shortly before sunset.
