Smaller and smaller
The new sub-seventy kilogramme class of self-propelled hang-gliders with stall speed not exceeding twenty knots is deregulated and they do not require a licence to fly. Flylight Aviation have introduced the Peabee to fill this niche, a weight-shift trike pared to the basics, although luxuries such as a windscreen and a ballistic parachute can be fitted. Maybe as an homage to Brexit, the factorybuilt G-CLHT is marketed as the Red Line version, while kit-built G-CLHP is modified.
G-CLHU is a new member of the Italian Alisport Silent family of Single-seat Deregulated motor gliders, this a kit with a two-stroke petrol engine and a single-blade dorsal mounted propeller.
