04 - Increasing minimum speed for microlight and paramotor aircraft
A one or two seat powered aircraft whose minimum speed at Maximum Take Off Weight (MTOW) is less than 65 km/h, and having a MTOW of:
The deck length was increased from 100 meters to 125 meters, and the weight limit increased for microlights in order to allow more type of microlights to participate, therefore also the minimum speed should be increased.
This proposal is to increase the minimum speed from 65 km/h to 83 km/h (45 knots) as the new EU regulation 2018/1139 Chapter1/Article2/8.a allows MTOM for microlights to 600 kg, and the minimum steady flight speed in landing configuration 45 knots.
