I'm a VFR pilot with a couple hundred hours. I've been trying to do more flying lately but I just can't seem to afford it. I've been toying with the idea of building/buying an ultralight and keeping it at home just to "scratch the itch". I have the space for a runway, a building to keep one in, and the mechanical background for maintenance (no I'm not an A&P). What I'm really wondering about are the requirements. I know very little about ultralights and am not sure where to start. Licensing, inspections, maintaining a "runway". Is there an "Ultralight for Dummies" somewhere that would be a good place to start. It seems like all of the forums are already way above my head or only talking maintenance. As always, safety is the main concern but money is an issue too. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
