    Fly to work!

    I want one of these. Could someone who knows about such things comment on the license required in the UK, assuming one is required?

    OK, I suspect it's a quick way to reduce the population, but are we were looking to live in is on a very sheltered part of the coast, but the likely ~120 mile drive to work made it a non-starter. It's only 10-12 miles across the water though...

    I would imagine it could be flown on a microlight license(think these exist for a/c below a certain weight).If not,then a PPL would be required(private pilot's license).Depending on where you lived,there may be restrictions on using the airspace above...

    from the 2nd pic at the top of the page, bono already has one - so i'll give it a miss - also if you put it down a bit heavily you're going to be mince when you get pitched out of the seat and into the prop.
    From now on if my comment can be expressed in the form of a tired internet meme or picture.
    So it shall be done.

    I think this should be the only paperwork you need, Graham.

    The price of the thing actually seems fairly reasonable for such a comute, Graham. I think you should go for it and take some videos for us all to see.

    Graham, that is a great find mate!
    But come to think of it, it won't be a great transport for you... except if you don't mind to show up for work with a wet arse!
