Welcome to the Ultralight area of ByDanJohnson.com.

This is one of the most popular sections on the web site containing articles on a variety of ultralight aircraft. (Those interested in Light-Sport Aircraft or LSA should click the light blue "Light Sport Aircraft" tab for pilot reports and information on this new aviation segment.)

Many reports are from Ultralight Flying! magazine and are the most thorough of all articles on ByDanJohnson.com. Each article from Ultralight Flying! contains an in depth Report Card section that outlines the pros and cons of the aircraft reviewed. This is an invaluable resource when researching your next aircraft purchase.

Other reports in the Ultralight Aircraft section are from KITPLANES, EAA SPORT PILOT or EXPERIMENTER, or GENERAL AVIATION NEWS. These stories do not have the Report Card and they may have fewer photos. However, they contain a review based on common information and continue to provide excellent aircraft reviews.

Give One A Try.

Click on a report and see what you think. Mini Pilot Reports are free to members and registered visitors while all other reports with a $ sign in front require payment.

Members can access every single Pilot Report on the website as part of the membership fee.

There is nothing to download. Once you've paid for a Pilot Report, we track it in our system so you can enjoy the report as often as you like without having to re-purchase.
