What we do

Sky Gypsies fly a unique type of aircraft. Known as flex wing microlights, weight shift control aircraft, WSC aircraft, trikes, or kite wing aircraft, they have no tail or control surfaces and direction is controlled through shifting the pilots weight. We spend time high in the sky, traveling, or aerotrekking.

The FAA defines these aircraft as - “Weight-shift-control aircraft means a powered aircraft with a framed pivoting wing and a fuselage controllable only in pitch and roll by the pilot's ability to change the aircraft's center of gravity with respect to the wing. Flight control of the aircraft depends on the wing's ability to flexibly deform rather than the use of control surfaces.”
