19 – Aerolite 103

On this episode we spend some time talking about the Aerolite 103, an aircraft that is in the “Part 103” Ultralight world of aviation.

Dennis Carley talks about how much fun the Aerolite 103 is to fly, tells about it’s performance, how you can build it, or even buy it fully assembled and ready to fly.

We also talk about the option of a Magnum Ballistic Parachute system (which can also be used with a number of other aircraft too).

And if you’re already a pilot, Dennis shares what it’s like to make the transition to flying an Aerolite 103.

This episode was recorded in the Ultralight area of AirVenture Oshkosh 2018, so you’ll hear some fun airplane interruptions!
