I hope to be a Air Force pilot someday and but for now I want to get some flying experiance. But being only 17 I don't have the money to buy a Cessna or any other true aircraft. I was looking at these Ultra-Light aircraft and I was thinking it would be perfect to fly around my area. Our family owns almost 200 acres of land with about 100 of it being fields. So I was thinking of getting the kind that is basically a powered hang glider with three wheels and two seats. But the problem it that I can't find really any good information on the web. Like I have found that it will cost around $3,000 but I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right thing. So what I was wondering is does anyone here have one or know any information on a Ultra Light? What I want is like a online store that sells ultra-lights. Oh yeah I do know there is a HUGE diffrence between a Ultra-Light and a F-15 but I just want to get up in the sky ASAP. Also to be able to take-off from the field behind my house would I have to get some clearnace from the FAA or something like that? I live in a F-15 training zone and I don't want to end up a smear on a canopy of a F-15. 300th POST!!
