Helicopter Crash - Near Calgary

Says an ultralight helicopter in the article. I didn't know there was a category for that? Do they mean a homebuilt helicopter or perhaps a gyro?

Anyone hear more?

Sad. I knew John, although not well. He was a smart guy, big in to innovation. He didn’t live far from me.

We have one on the field here in Vernon. I'd like to fly it, but it's single seat... (;>0)
