What is meant by Ultralight Trike?

The origin of Ultralight Trike is hang gliding. This is why it is very similar.

Ultralight Pilot

The Ultralight Trike is a hang-glider, with a chassis suspended from it. The chassis has been reinforced to accept the increase of stresses generated by the weight of the motorized tricycle and the centrifugal force exerted by the propeller rotation. Its ability to fly slowly makes it possible to take off and land on grassy slopes at very short distances. Flying in the open air without a cabin allows you to get maximum enjoyment from the beauty of our landscapes during the different seasons. Tandem or solo, it can fly at an average speed of 100 km/h and has a range of 3 to 5 hours.

Piloting the trike is very simple because there are no fins or wing elevator. Handling it works by weight transfer. The control bar is used only to link with the wing. Over time, these aircrafts have evolved a lot and use the most modern aviation materials. It has a very good "all terrain" quality.
