There are two types of Ultra light/ Micro light aircraft 3 axis or weight shift aircraft, 3 axis is what most people imagine when they think of an aircraft they have a typical aircraft shape with , wings and a tail they are also operated in the same way as conventional aircraft, whereas the weight shift aircraft is more like a hand glider with a seat attached to it and is flown in a way that has no resemblance to a conventional aircraft Its also much easier to learn to fly. Here at Fly Thailand we are more interested in weight shift aircraft

Modern day Weight shift aircraft are much more than a hand glider with a seat and now meet all aircraft safety standards and are built to technical standards that match any aircraft that fly’s today.
Unlike the old days when a guy built something in his garage and attached what wasn’t much more than a lawn mower engine modern aircraft have purpose built engines wings and frames with all modern safety features.
