Microlight / Ultralight Aircraft

Ultralight and microlight aircraft represent the most diversified segment of General Aviation. AERO visitors can regularly see this for themselves. There are ultralight fixed-wing aircraft, gyrocopters, helicopters and gliders. They are used as training, travel and pure fun aircraft and are the ideal entry into General Aviation. What all ultralight aircraft have in common is that the aircraft’s weight is not to exceed 600 kilograms. ULs also have no need to hide in terms of performance and can also score points with low operating costs. The number of ultralight aircraft is continuously growing, not only in Germany, but throughout Europe. At the end of 2022, around 5,400 ultralight aircraft were registered in Germany alone. The number of UL pilots also reached a new high of over 27,300 (including gyrocopter pilots).

The industry is very innovative and impresses time and again with its diversity of ideas and speed of implementation.
