Importing an Advanced ultralight aircraft

Post by marakii »

I am curious on the difficulties and costs of importing an AULA advanced ultralight aircraft into Canada whether it’s from the US or Europe? We’re not talking about a certified cessna or piper where I hear it’s a little more difficult due to the maintenance standards , if anyone has pros and cons please share. I know it’s easier to buy from Canada but the prices can be better in the US.
Thanks in advance

Your biggest problem is going to be opening up any enclosed spaces. When first built - the aircraft goes through a pre-closure insp. If you import an already finished aircraft - those areas need to be re-inspected to ensure they were built properly. Depending on the aircraft type - that could be very invasive and expensive.

He said Advanced Ultralight, not Amateur-Built.
