There are many different types of hang gliders out there on the market today, some are better than others and some just offer different options. We are going to look at the light sport trike flying aircraft such as the Airborne XT-912. The light sport trike has also been called a ultralight trike, flex-wing trike, a weight-shift-control aircraft, a microlight trike, delta trike and even a motorized delta plane. It doesn’t really matter what you call it, it still performs the same.
The light sport trike is a powered hang glider that uses a high performance Rogallo wing along with a propeller powered three wheeled body, hence why it is named a trike. The trikes have been very popular among the British since the early 1980’s; they have just recently made their appearance here in the Unites States. The wing of hang glider was first invented by a man named Francis Rogallo in the 1940’s. As you can see the Ultra Trikes have been being perfected for many years, so it’s easy to see how they are one of the safest aircrafts out there.
