AeroSports Update: Ultralight Flyers Attempt A Guinness Record

On Saturday, October 10, The World Ultralight Fly-In (WUFI) Will Attempt To Set The Guinness World Record For The First Worldwide Ultralight ‘Fly-In’

If you really think about it, having a worldwide ultralight Fly-in sounds like a lot of fun on the surface, but the issue is how do you get ultralights to a single place in a worldwide Fly-in? Just in case you’re not familiar with ultralights, they’re not exactly considered ideal for long distance cross-country flying.

The event, put together by Dayton Ultralights with the help of members of EAA Chapter 48 in Moraine, Ohio, is open to all pilots who fly aircraft classified as ultralight and/or open air. To participate, ultralight pilots must fly their aircraft on October 10 and submit a dated photograph to WUFI's Facebook page with their name, location, and type and model of aircraft.

Here are the details as listed on the WUFI Facebook page:

  • WHEN: Starts at daybreak October 10th, 2015
  • WHERE: Anywhere on the planet Earth that you fly!
  • WHO: Any pilot of an aircraft considered an "ultralight" and/or "open air." Ultralight, PPG, PPC, Trike, Paramotor, Hang Glider, Hot Air Balloon. Any imaginative, magnificent flying machine.
  • WHY: Because the limitations of these aircraft mean it is unlikely all of us around the world will ever get to fly together. But we CAN all fly the same sky, on the same day everywhere on the planet, making this the FIRST Virtual Worldwide Fly-in!
  • HOW to participate: Simple, prepare your aircraft. Then starting at daybreak on October 10, 2015, fly, and photograph, or video your flight. You need a photo with "Visible proof of October 10 showing on the screen - with you in a flying machine in the air. Could be selfie, or taken from another ship or from the ground."
  • THEN: post your pictures to the WUFI Facebook site with your name, type of aircraft, and model, and a short description of where on the Earth you flew!

Once you have posted, you are officially a WUFI pilot and a member of the very first World Ultralight Fly-In! You’ll be sent a printable certificate that says exactly that.
