Ray and Sher's Shipway Ultralight Aviation services provides Ultalight pilot training and services in Cloverdale, CA 060 (Cloverdale Airport designator) thirty miles north of Santa Rosa on Hwy 101. Ultralights are very light weight single seat aircraft used for sport and recreation. They fly “low and slow” during the day and good weather conditions. The term ultralight can include everything from unpowered hang gliders to powered parachutes to fully instrumented, sleek-looking “cruisers” weighing less than 254 pounds. Flying an ultralight does not require a pilot certificate and there are no minimum age or training requirements. Because they are often easier to operate, training normally takes just 10-20 hours. Aircraft costs are also low, with average new ultralights costing between $8,000-$15,000. Used ultralights can cost as little as $5000!
