I should think an ultralite would be perfect for a big-ass parachute to bring the whole rig down.

But, then, it would be an ultranotquiteaslite.

Or, an ultranotquiteasdeadly.

I'll pass, either way. I have enough deadly hobbies, if you're pickin' up what I'm layin' down.

They already have parachute systems for light planes as well as ultralights. They have saved lives and should be standard equipment, IMHO.

Yeah, I think Cirrus makes small planes with a chute system.

New one on me, Mexican Air force in WW II.
Nazis torpedoed two Mexican oil tankers headed to the US, so the Mexican President declared war on the Axis in '42. Mexico and Brazil were the only ones to send troops. The Aztec Eagles(30 pilots, 270 support) were attached to a US Army Air Corps squadron and loaned the latest Thunderbolts.

Remember the tv show 'Riptide'?

They had a chopper, (vvv this one) that they called The Screamin' Mimi:

I remember it from Riptide.

I remember seeing it was a cheap old surplus chopper in the story line of that show, and wondering if someday I might be able to afford an old surplus chopper. I was a dumb kid, so I didn't know anything about the 5,000 hours of maintenance for every hour of flight rule of thumb back then.

It's a Sikorsky H-34, and was one of the last helicopters to use a piston engine.
