Ultralite Trike Page

After flying Hang Gliders at Finger Lakes Aerosports for a few years I became interested in flying Marty's trike and asked Marty if he would show me how it was done and Marty said sure thing Bob. The next time I visited the flight park Marty took me up in his Air Creations 583 trike and let me have a go at it. Marty said that with my hang gliding experience that I would likely learn quickly and he was right and I had a blast flying the trike with Marty and then it was my time to go for a solo flight. I was cautious on my first take off and got off faster than I expected due to the weight reduction because Marty was not with me. The glider felt like it handled much nicer with less weight and my first landings were touch and goes but after a few tries I put it down nicely. Marty let me fly the trike a few more times in the next few months and I did one longer flight from the flight park south to the Erie Barge Canal and enjoyed the view and landed back at the park with a big smile. Check out the two videos below for a sweet ride.

Thanks Marty
