Have you flown on or do you own an ultralight aircraft?
No, and my acrophobia would totally prevent that from happening. I've been on small planes (4-seater, ~8-seater) & managed to enjoy it, in spite of being terrified. But... not an ultralight.
Flying an aircraft yourself, is indescribably different than flying in a piloted plane. Control of your own safety relieves some of the fears of being in a craft.
I understand the principle of that, & it's a very good point. I still think there's not a chance of it happening with me, though. But hey, you never know....
True that it isn't for everyone, but for those willing to try, it is exhilarating. Flying at 9000 feet, shutting the motor off and gliding down with a 6:1 ratio, truly nothing like it.
No way, I've flown many airplanes but the larger the airplane I fly the less I want to try to fly an ultralight.
Yes! When I was in Mexico once, there were these guys that came around offering to take people for rides on their light airplane. Everyone thought I was nuts for wanting to do it but I did! It was an hour long flight over the ocean. It was beautiful.
That is awesome!! I have owned and flown on for the past 14 years now. There truly is nothing like it!
