Types of Microlight

Types of Microlight Aircraft:

In general, the IAA expect that Irish microlights be of a type complying with the UK Airworthiness standard, (BCAR Section “S”).
Some microlights that are flying legally (and safely) here are not currently approved in the UK. These would include the Czech Urban Air machines, Lambada and Samba,Russian MiG biplane, the German Mosquito, and a Pegasus flexwing trike fitted to a Huntwing wing. The aircraft listed below are factory or kit built aircraft complying with BCAR Section ‘S’ or equivalent code as agreed with the I.A.A. The list includes aircraft for which the NMAI has full technical documentation.
