Hang glider with trike

Post by Paul Howey » Sun Mar 11, 2018 3:36 pm

Hi..... it's been a fair old while since I did any flying. But I'm retiring next month and would like to get back in to it. Hang gliding seems to have been taken over by paragliding? I've tried microlighting but it doesn't have the same appeal so been looking at perhaps a HG and lightweight trike.
Has anyone got any experience with these? Or is hang gliding the old fashioned way or paragliding the way forward?
Thanks in advance
go for it. you can always get another wife!

Hi Paul,

I think Trevor Robinson has recently done some flying on SSD microlight, he may be the man to talk to.

Hi Paul, good to hear from you. There is a sub 70kg microlight called Nanolight. Flylight Airsports build them but they are expensive £8,000 all up !

Give them a call on 01604 494 459 Ben Ashman is the main man to talk too.

p.s still teaching hangliding and the performance of the modern wings are mind blowing !!
