Thumbs up Flying Ultralight Aircraft In The Philippines

Gene,

More info please about Ultralight activity in the Islands. I started basic piloting in 1958 and have been a Licensed Pilot for almost 35 years, have recently started to find interest in Ultralights. I did not know of any in the ROP, and would like to know more as we have lately been doing more discussions about moving there on a permanent basis.

Fred

Hi Fred,

I know that there are several clubs in country. I'm familiar with only the one that is close to our home. The club by us is the Angeles City Flying Club. They are extremely professional and maintenance/inspections is always up to date.
I'll also stick a You-Tube video of the club and flying below if I can find it. Don't know what area you plan to live here. But if anywhere close to Angeles, then this is the club to get involved with.

Gene...

I can't tell you how great it is not have my knees jammed up against the seat in front of me for a 15 hour flight. Also, leaving mid week the flight was only half full so my wife and I had an empty seat between us. We left SFO at 11 pm and arrived in manilla around 4:30 am which is nice because we didn't have to deal with Manilla traffic getting up to Tagaytay. Anyway... I'm sold on PAL.
I've only flown PAL domestically. I work for an airline that also flies the A320 domestically and PAL definitely has much more legroom.

Also amazes me how they can turn a full A320 in Tacloban without a phalanx of bag vehicles or a jetbridge or tugs or technology in 2/3 the time of any US airline. Unbelievable.

Most of the aircraft I've seen use the Rotax engines. Easy and low cost maintenance. Rotax engines are what most order with a new kit but suppose Honda or others are available. I would mostly be concerned locating parts for the Honda...

Ah okay. Glad it helps then. Pretty good club and they even have lower cost non-flying memberships I'm told for those that just want to hang out and use the swimming pool etc. I'll probably join there when retirement starts next year. That is if it doesn't cost too much by then.

Gene,

Thanks very much for the video's which included the links. Looks like a good starting point to find out info. I am sure there may be others on here who may be interested. We are thinking more of settling on Panay Island as She is a retired Real Estate Broker and She grew up on that Island.

Hi Fred,

You're welcome and I hope the info will help in locating other flying clubs in country.
If anyone here knows of other ultra-light groups or flying clubs, please list all contact information for them including links.


Thanks...

Almost forgot, Close to the ultra-light club, over at Clark Field is Omni Aviation. They are a certified flight school for all light aircraft (except ultra-light) I think there is aircraft rental available there or right next door to them. They do share airport and runway(s) with commercial jets so it is a controlled airport.
Here is the site for all airport information including but not limited to tower and approach, departure control.
