Proposal from

Naaman Tam Israel 

Proposal title

DEFINITION OF A MICROLIGHT OR PARAMOTOR AIRCRAFT

Existing text

1.3.1 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:

- 300 kg for a landplane flown solo

- 330 kg for an amphibian or a pure seaplane flown solo;

- 450 kg for a landplane flown with two persons

- 495 kg for an amphibian or a pure seaplane flown with two personsNote. These definitions also apply to foot-launched Microlight and Paramotor aircraft.

New text

 1.3.1 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:

- 375 kg for a landplane flown solo

405 kg for an amphibian or a pure seaplane flown solo;

- 450 kg for a landplane flown with two persons

- 495 kg for an amphibian or a pure seaplane flown with two personsNote. These definitions also apply to foot-launched Microlight and Paramotor aircraft.

Reason

The AL1 and WL1 classes have not many competitors in the last years.

One reason should be that not many pilots own that aircrafts.

The other reason should be that pilots that own AL1 or WL1 do not like competing.

The MTOW change can let pilots who own AL2 or WL2 to compete solo.

Most of the AL2 empty weight is 255-270 kg so if pilot is 85 kg and at least 22 kg of fuel we get 375 kg MTOW.
