Ultra-light Aeroplane Definitions
- a single-seat aeroplane that has a launch weight of 165 kg (368.8 pounds) or less, and a wing area, expressed in square metres, of not less than the launch weight minus 15, divided by 10, and in no case less than 10 m²;
- a two-seat instructional aeroplane that has a launch weight of 195 kg (429.9 pounds) or less, and a wing area, expressed in square metres, of not less than 10 m² and a wing loading of not more than 25 kg/m² (5.12 pounds/ft.² ), the wing loading being calculated using the launch weight plus the occupant weight of 80 kg (176.4 pounds) per person; or
- an aeroplane having no more than two seats, designed and manufactured to have a maximum take-off weight of 544 kg (1199 pounds) and a stall speed in the landing configuration (Vso) of 39 knots (45 mph) or less indicated airspeed at the maximum take-off weight.
If registering a basic ultra-light aeroplane under option (c), the following minimum useful load (Mu or Wu) calculation shall be carried out:
For a single-place aeroplane
Mu = 80 + 0.3P, in kg; where P is the rated engine power in kilowatts
(Wu) = 175 + 0.5P, in lb.; where P is the rated engine power in Brake Horse Power
For a two-place aeroplane
Mu = 160 + 0.3P, in kg; where P is the rated engine power in kilowatts
(Wu) = 350 + 0.5P, in lb.; where P is the rated engine power in Brake Horse Power
