Wanabe for weight shift control aircraft as a pilot
« on: May 26, 2017, 09:42:53 AM »
Greetings all, A fine site you have here, I had a ppl roughly 17 rears ago and quit to raise the family and never came back until now.
At this point in 1991 I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and to this day I can walk unaided for approx. 400 ft.
Now I have renewed my interest in flying but with a weight shift control aircraft or powered hanglider (trike), would it be possible to derate my ppl to a category 4 license ? Thank you for your help and if you have other comments it would be welcome.

Hi norm, I'm not sure about weight shift aircraft per say, but weight shift in a paramotor is possible. That's what I fly currently (I went from a ppl in 2010 to ppgps in 2014 and now looking at going back to flying but ultralight advanced).

You should perhaps look into ultralight as the medical requirements to my knowledge is cat4.
