Dream Classic

Basic UltraLight Motorized welcome to the world of low-budget flying

This one looks a lot like a old-timer. I forgot the name of the airplane, but yes it looks a lot like it. In the site of Airdrome Aeroplanes (http://www.airdromeaeroplanes.com/index.html), they mention that the kit comes with only the engine, prop and instruments missing. At this time (feb. 2004) it was $ 2995. Make sure to check if the price is still up to date.

I noticed that it can be build with two different wings. A standard or a speedy one. I would suggest if you are a beginner pilot to choose the standard one. It is always safer to fly slow as a beginner pilot.

The manufacturer describes the Classic Dream as:

"The dream classic ultralight is a full three axis aircraft with a side mount stick & is covered with the certified poly fiber process. This kit comes with all machining & required welding pre-done. Construction time is normally around 100/120 man hours ."
