Yes, you can follow your dreams and connect to the sky with Belite’s
new SkyDock. We’ve listened to your concerns about price, build time and ease of construction.
The SkyDock offers Part 103 legal ultralight flying at an affordable price without sacrificing performance or the technology that is a part of the Belite reputation.
Your Dream of Flight Comes True!
Recreational flying offers an extremely fun and rewarding experience. With an ultralight aircraft you can get close to nature with slow flying with the flying feel of a real airplane. Just take a look at this video and see what you can experience.
Ultralights are one of the easiest ways to experience flight. The term, as it is used in the Federal Aviation Regulations, applies to any vehicle, powered or unpowered, which meets the definitions of FAR Part 103. FAR Part 103 restricts the empty weight to 254 lbs. (278 lbs. with a parachute) and allows only single-seat craft. Cruise speed is limited to 63 MPH. and 5 gallons of fuel can be carried.
Many who want to fly Part 103 ultraight aircraft want the experience of building their own flying machine; but price, build time and ease of construction are concerns. And no pilot wants to sacrifice technology or the “real-flight” experience.
The SkyDock offers Part 103 legal ultralight flying at an affordable price without sacrificing performance or the technology. The SkyDock was designed to be as easy to build as possible, requiring less build time than most aircraft kits. The kit comes with parts machine cut and drilled. The builder just puts it together like a model airplane kit.
The SkyDock is made from precision CNC cut wood, foam and aluminum. No welding is required. Composite utilization of fiberglass and carbon fiber reinforcement ensure strength.
The strutless low-wing design is designed for efficient, low drag, low speed fun. No lift struts, no jury struts, easier assembly, less drag while flying! Wings build quickly – build the spar, put ribs in place and apply glue!
One of the most interesting features of the SkyDock is that the wings easily detach for storage or transport.
Performance is efficient, enabled by the very clean design. As we continue to test and develop the SkyDock, we’ll release more performance features. But since it originates from our other Belite Aircraft, performance will be similar to our other aircraft. Click here to see performance and specifications of other Belite aircraft.See also:
