experimental/homebuilt time


New Member
Just wondering if there are any fars that would prevent a pilot from loging time in an ultralight, if the aircraft is registered with the faa as an experimental. Seems pretty weak to me...
Logging time in an experimental aircraft that requires a licence issued under part 61 is legitimate time. Logging time in an ultralight that can legally be flown with no pilots licence is not legitimate.
I suppose you could. But why bother. An ultralight is very limited in usefulness. The only reason to have one is that you don't need a pilots license. It does not cost much more to build an experimental that is capable of carrying 2 people, goes faster, and is capable of flying longer distances.
