SKY-LAC aims to promote travel by ultralight aircraft
Based at EBAV (Avernas Ultralight Airport, Wallonia, Belgium), SKY-LAC is your partner for ultralight aircrafts of the brand FLIGHT DESIGN, in Belgium.
SKY-LAC, an extension of the company E-LAC which has been active for more than 60 years in the field of domestic and office technologies, joined the Flight Design General Aviation in 2020.
Since 2017 the Flight Design general aviation GmbH headquarter is located at the airfield Eisenach / Kindel (EDGE). From there, every aircraft they build are shipped to customers after passing a lot of extensive quality tests.
They also offer a maintenance shop! They are able to perform repairs, do warranty service and support the entire line of new and used aircraft.
SKY-LAC is currently demonstrating the CTLS light aircraft and will soon offer it for rent.
Become an ultralight pilot!
Flying is a dream that seems inaccessible for many people, maybe you think it is a dangerous activity, but it is all about learning and rigor.
At Avernas Flying School (UES) you can become a pilot at your own rythme depending on your goals and motivation.
The process to become a pilot is open to everyone. You just need to be in good health but if you have glasses or hearing aids, no problem! Age is not a limit either, some pilots start at 60 and become a pilot in one year…it all depends on your motivation.
The budget to start flying is really light, about 250€ to pass the medical exam and get the learning license. Then you do your flying hours with an instructor for about 135€ per hour.
You progress at your own rythme and according to your abilities.
Today, an ultralight is a truly complete aircraft, equipped with many instruments. Those designed by FLIGHT DESIGN are not only equipped with the usual flight instruments: altitude, speed, engine details, radio, compass, but also:
- parachute for safety in case of accident
- a glass cockpit with GPS to easily reach your destination.
FLIGHT DESIGN offers only high wing aircraft, with a better view and more safety in case of a crash. If you fail to land and do a 180 degree turn over the wing, you can easily exit the plane! In addition, the cockpit’s carbon-aramid composite cabin helps to protect you and your passenger.
Renting / Purchasing an ultralight aircraft
Becoming a pilot is one thing, but for most people, owning an airplane is another and the purchase price can be a barrier. This is where SKY-LAC comes in!
In general, schools have planes for training, but not enough to allow them to travel off base. An agreement is being put in place between SKY-LAC and the aviation school to offer their aircraft for rental for travel. You will only pay for the hours you fly!
SKY-LAC is in the process of offering its aircraft to EBAV, so that you can become a pilot in the school and eventually rent our aircraft at the same location. We are also open to offer our aircraft at other locations depending on the agreement with the local schools or clubs.
