Ultralight aircraft represent the most diversified segment of general aviation. AERO visitors can see this for themselves again this year!

There are ultralight fixed-wing aircraft, gyrocopters, helicopters and gliders. They are used as training, touring and fun aircraft and are the ideal introduction to general aviation.

What all ultralight aircraft have in common is that they must not weigh more than 600 kilograms. ULs also have nothing to hide in terms of flight performance and can also score points for their low operating costs. The number of microlight aircraft is growing not only in Germany, but throughout Europe. At the end of 2022, around 5,400 microlight aircraft were registered in Germany alone. The number of microlight pilots also reached a new high of over 27,300 (including gyroplanes).

The industry is highly innovative and continues to impress with its diversity of ideas and speed of implementation.
