Rising interest in sports involving aircrafts including aerial acrobatics, and airplane racing has greatly put the focus on the usage of ultralight models of aircraft around the world. Moreover, the increasing application of ultralight aircraft in public and defense operations such as reconnaissance flights, search and rescue operations and more. Rising importance on aircraft operation and production regulations along with technological innovations by manufacturers is anticipated to boost the demand in the ultralight aircraft market in the years to come.

Relaxation in Regulations to Boost Production of Ultralight Aircrafts

Rising amounts of investments are being put towards the use of ultralight aircraft for sports and recreational activities for learner pilots, especially for travelling short-distances. With manufacturers giving increased importance to enhanced performances and flight speed for new ultralight aircraft designs, the demand for these aircraft is bound to increase in the near future.

One more vital aspect that must be considered, is the recent increase in the number of short-term aviation courses, which allow new pilots to gain the requisite skills and authorized certificates that are required to fly ultralight aircraft, as a result boosting the demand for ultralight aircraft.

Relatively lower costs for purchasing, maintaining, and using ultralight aircraft is a key contributor behind the rising sales of ultralight aircraft. Moreover, the capability to take off and land in very small airstrip will also boost demand.

Recently the usage of ultralight aircraft within the United States has been freed from regulations. This move by the government authorities in the country is expected to attract more end users and generate enhanced opportunity for the growth of manufacturers.

The fact that there are no fixed standards developing ultralight aircraft along with the recent losses in the market value of the aviation sector, coupled with concerns about the safety of ultralight aircraft on the other hand are expected to significantly constrain the progress of ultralight producers.

Technology and Material Improvements Gain High Importance

Major producers of ultralight aircraft such as Evektor Spol. S.R.O, Quicksilver Aircrafts, P&M Aviation, and Cirrus Design Corporation, are giving great importance to aspects such as improving material, design, and technological improvements to gain benefits over the competition.

For instance, the EuroStar SL+ range of ultralight aircraft by Evektor Spol S.R.O. is designed with ergonomically shaped interiors that include modifiable pedals, intelligent ventilation control, high seat backrest, and the use of corrosion resistant body material that allows to significantly lessen aircraft weight, to enhance load capacity for fuel, cargo, and crew. The design also enables pilots to recover easily incase the aircraft goes into the spin, thereby ensuring improved safety standards.

Similarly, the the Sport 2SE special light sports aircraft ultralight by Quicksilver Aircraft is designed to comply to regulations for FAA approved and it provides pilots with an open cockpit design, that allows unfiltered views and maneuverability, at low costs.

Widespread Presence of Market Players to Play Vital Role

The rapid growth of the tourism sector in the emerging countries including Brazil, China, and India, are expected to generate lucrative opportunities for ultralight aircraft manufacturers who are operating internationally. Moreover, Vietnam is also gaining importance in the international scene as a key hub for the production of such aircraft.

It is important to note that the ultralight aircraft are gaining in usage, in the United States of America owing to the deregulation these aircraft types, thereby enabling ultralight aircraft producers to put efforts towards innovative aircraft designs and materials.
