Ultralights are to the aircraft industry what Formula 1 is to car makers: a testing ground for innovation. Since ultralights are allowed to weigh a maximum of 450 kg, including crew, fuel and baggage, the builders do everything they can to make the aircraft itself as light as possible. That led to application revolutionary developments such as composite materials. Curious? Fly with the pioneers of today.
The flying lessons are flown from Stadtlohn. The airport of Stadtlohn is located in Germany, about 23 kilometers from Enschede. The airport has a concrete runway. From the flight school you have a good view of the runway. This will make you look forward to your own flying lesson even more.
You will fly in a Tecnam P92 classic de luxe or a Tecnam P92MKII. This is an advanced aircraft with the latest equipment on board. At the same time, this is a lightweight and compact aircraft. This makes it extremely maneuverable and it steers very directly. The smallest steering movements have an immediate effect. The ideal combination for a sporty aircraft!
You start with an explanation of the basics of flying. In this 'briefing', the instructor answers important questions. How does an airplane stay in the air? How do the pedals work? What are all the buttons and gauges for? Of course you can also ask all your questions. If you bring someone along to watch you go up in the air, he or she can of course also attend the introduction. Then you both know what you will experience in the air. You do not have to pay extra for this.
The theory part always takes about 20 minutes, regardless of the time you choose for the practical part.
After the theory part you go with the instructor to the plane. First you check together whether the aircraft is ready for departure. Then you drive to the runway, this is called taxiing. Through the headphones you can hear the instructor and the control tower. The instructor asks permission from the control tower to take off. And then the time has come! In the air you can fly the plane yourself. You get to fly everything yourself except the last part of the landing. Of course the instructor helps you with everything. He will take over if you want to look outside. Or if you want to make photos or a video.
How long the practical part takes you choose. The minimum is 20 minutes, but the longer the better!
Do you want to fly in a certain direction? In consultation with the instructor you decide where you fly. The maps on this page give you an indication of how far you can fly.
