    What Are The Legal and Licensing Requirements On Building An Ultralight And Flying It?

    At one point in my life, approximately 10 years ago actually, I had planned to build an Ultralight, and to teach myself how to fly it, here in Tennessee on my own farm. At that time, there were no laws on the book to stop me from doing this.
    I changed my mind because my life insurance company said they would not cover me if I died while at the controls of an Ultralight.
    Now, I do not know the legal and licensing requirements for my own state of Tennessee, or my county, or my city of Franklin, Tennessee.
    Many times, laws can vary from state to state, county to county, and even based on the town that you live in.
    It will be an easy task to approach your local governmental offices to obtain this useful information for your particular situation.
    Good luck.
    Best regards,
    Dr. Haddox

    It is generally regulated by the local Aviation authority.
    For example, in USA, a non profit organisation, United States Ultralight Association supports ultralight aviation and ultralight aircraft.

    The requirements on operating Ultralight are:
    Among the restrictions of FAA's FAR Part 103:

    Used only for sport and recreation
    Daylight operations only
    No operations over congested areas
    Used by a single occupant
    Maximum five gallons of fuel
    Yield right-of-way to all other aircraft
    Operation in controlled airspace and restricted areas requires prior permission
    Two-seat ultralights, except for those used for instruction, are regulated by other portions of the FAR's (see question 1.4.) See FAR Part 103.

    Similarly, in Great Britain, Civil Aviation authority regulates the requirements for flying any kind of aircrafts and classifies types of operations either as:

    ** General Aviation:
        Private flying, aerial work and recreational flying involving all types of aircraft, together with Corporate or Business Aviation where aircraft are operated by companies or organisations but do not carry fare-paying passengers.)

    And

    ** Commercial Aviation

    So, I would say, you must speak to local Aviation Authority / Aviation Regulatory Body is the one who could be of utmost help available at your disposal for such queries.

    Hope it helps.
