One day towards the end of March I got the urge to fly. A friend had a plane and I thought what better way to get introduced than a small Ultralight. I contacted a fellow in Lodi who offered flights. The machine is a Antares two seat trike which cruises at about 50 mph. For the most part we stayed between 800 and 1000'. Although the ceiling is about 12,000', the view is much better at lower elevations. Of all the flights I have ever made, including in small Pipers, this was the most enjoyable. It's motorcycling in the sky.
