VW Ultralite Spotted
This lightweight aircraft is powered by a VW engine, weighs only 220 pounds!
We spotted Dennis Brooks' Hummel "UltraCruiser" all metal Ultralite aircraft at the recent Volks-Weston show in Weston, Missouri, and had a chance to speak with the owner/builder. Yes, Dennis constructed this aircraft himself, and flies it as often as he can. With a 25-foot wingspan (detached in this photo) it can cruise at 60mph with its 1/2 of a VW engine that produces 37 horsepower, while sipping only 1-1/2 gallons of gas per hour.
