Number 5: Ultralight Flying
Ultralight aviation came about because of people wanting to fly more affordably in the 70’s and 80’s. The planes are called Ultralight or Microlight. These are very light planes that can fit 1-2 persons. On the weekend after my birthday, we drove to Angeles City Flying Club to try this out. I already looked it up on the internet but you never really know what it’s like until you’re actually there.
Some planes had enclosures at the front but mine was completely open. There was a short runway then we were off! It shook me out a bit at the beginning. Fortunately Alex, my designated pilot guide, was a very relaxed and chatty guy. It took no time before I was able to relax and get used to the feeling of riding a bicycle in mid air. I even tried my hand at driving the plane!
The skies were clear when we went flying and the view was just spectacular. If you look very very closely, you might even see people standing by the riverbanks or working at the fields.
