Hello all, I first will say I have got a lot of good info from here before I signed up today.
looking for what everyone thinks on this.
I have been looking at ultra lights for several years, have a couple real good friends that have them.
One is very anal, does everything by the book, never speeds, asks for directions, every tool in its place, puts the seat down every time, you know this guy.
The other one, is like most guys, carefull, but fun loving.
Both have fat ultra lights, both been flying 12 to 15 years. guy 1 got the N numbers, LS lic, did everything to the letter of the law.
Friend 2 is still flying his just like he has been for the last 12 years.
OK now for the question, I just got a smoking deal on 2 Quicksilver 2 seaters, 1 is a Sport, with a 583, loaded with only 24 hours, the other is a Sprint, with a couple hundred hours. No N Numbers..
One buddy says to sell them, buy something with N Numbers, get the light Sport ticket, again letter of the law.
The other one says, since I am planning to only fly from, home, and land at home, to just go flying and have fun, and not worry about it.
I have rode many hours with both, and friend 2 seems to be the better pilot.
By the way, they are also good friends, and fly together often.
