Just one Iota
Shakeel Siddiqui is well known in Ireland for building and flying large radio-controlled models, and has gone slightly bigger with Iota G-CLCD. This high-wing monoplane is designed to be the first three-axis aircraft to meet the new CAA sub-70kg single seat deregulated criteria. Known as nanolights, or self-propelled hang-gliders with wheels, they can be flown without a licence, although the compulsory thirdparty insurance cover will probably require some formal training. Stall speed must be 20kt or less, challenging to calibrate. Certainly qualifying is G-CKZG, the first UK example of the Israeli Apco Cruiser powered parachute.
