Ultralight in Alaska

This picture I painted for my Honey.
A Beautiful Northern landscape in Alaska and a small "Ultralight" airplane. You will find 6 times as many pilots per capita in Alaska as you will in the rest of the country, and 14 times as many airplanes. With countless towns and villages across the state that aren’t, according to the local parlance, “on the road system,” and a land mass twice the size of Texas, a plane comes in pretty handy, and an Ultralight like this one, can land in a great many places in Alaska just fine!

Alaska has many places where you can really get away from it all. My dream is to visit Alaska as soon as I can.

If you like Ultralight Aircraft, and are visiting Alaska (or moving there), you might want to investigate 'Ultralight Flyers of Alaska' for tips and connections on flying an Ultralight in Alaska.  There are other places to learn to fly Ultralights - and even a list of United States Ultralight Schools! If you get there and you REALY like the idea of flying an Ultralight - even in Alaska, you might want to buy one. Lucky you - here is a private Ultralight For Sale in Alaska! (If you discover the link goes down - please add a comment!)

I have posts with other aircraft, if you like. They are:
A Painting I did for my Honey's Birthday, and a Beechcraft Twin Baron.

Here is a video of a different Ultrailight in Alaska -
