Seat of the pants flying, over the desert and suburban sprawl

Recommended Posts

Took the ultralight up for a ride--it's fun flying the American Aerolights Falcon watching the scenery slowly pass by below. When I moved to Arizona seventeen years ago, virtually none of the houses flown over on my flight existed. But now with our slow home economy, the sprawl has been stopped in its tracks for almost five years. Oddly enough, the one community with regular new home activity is the one in which I live--we have a lot of interest because of our schools, proximity to the White Tank nature center and library, and our open space.

 

Anyway, enough about that--hope you enjoy these screenshots!

The kit plane looks like fun to fly!

I've visited the White Tank mountains in the springtime when the desert blooms and turns into a sea of yellow.

Stunning!

 

There's a lot of fun to be had getting back to basics and pootling around in an ultralight. I had no idea though that anyone was producing payware ultralight aircraft!
