A couple of microlights

Here are pictures of two microlights that I took photos of when in Nelson a while back. The first is a "Moyes Dragonfly C" and the second is a "Rans S-6ES Coyote II". Both of these are registered in the "Microlight Class 2" category. Personally, I think the first one would be the most interesting to fly [even if presumably a little slow.... and cold!].

Hm yes, "interesting".. Don't think I would fly that one, bit exposed up front there lol!

Wimp :-) Looks like it has a balistic chute though - that could be useful!

Gavin said...

Heh heh heh. Hm yes a ballistic chute would be useful. Course gotta make sure your pax doesn't ask "Hey what's this thing do?" While pulling on the handle lol!

On a slightly different note, CAA website's weekly accident (28 August) indicates that ZK-ROY had a landing incident recently.

Looks like circuits with the last one resulting in the left main wheel breaking free. Bummer.

Gavin said...

Yeah that is a bummer, hard landing or structural fatigue I guess.

ROY is based at Nelson...I think it's operated by the Nelson club President. I've seen it doing circuits the odd time.
