This brings up a question. Is this contest for a recreational or utility personal flying device? The bicycle was built as a utility vehicle, and is now used for recreation. If a flying device is built under FAR part 103, it can only be used for recreation. The GoFly rules and guidelines point more towards a recreational flying device. However, some of the webinar's and allot of the posts lean towards building a utility type flying device. So which type of flying device is GoFly looking for?
Just to be clear:
Recreation type flying device is intended to be used for the joy of flying only. Such as ultralight aircraft, powered paragliders, and regular gliders.
Utility type flying device is intended to be used mostly for A to B transportation.
