Ultra-Light Aircraft Registration Made Ultra Simple

ultra light aircraft registration

Have you been looking for a way to register your ultra-light aircraft with the Canadian government? Alternatively, have you been on the fence as to whether or not your aircraft would qualify as “ultra-light?” These are important questions that have to be dealt with quickly, before you take your aircraft up in the air. Here at the Canadian Aircraft Registry, we’ve been helping aircraft owners like you for a long time. Whether your aircraft is ultra-light or not, we can provide you with the ultra-light aircraft registration that can make it legal for you to get up in the air and stay there.

Ultra-Light Aircraft Registration  

The authorities are quite clear on what constitutes an ultra-light aircraft. First off, it can’t have more than two seats. So, if you have an aircraft that makes you say something like: “well, see, this third thing isn’t necessarily a seat, exactly,” then just think of it as “not an ultra-light.” As ever, there are exceptions, and we’ll be glad to answer any questions that you might have. Beyond that, an ultra-light aircraft has to have a maximum take-off weight that’s no more than 544 kg (or 1,199 pounds if you aren’t on the metric system). Additionally, the stall speed in the landing configuration can’t be more than 45 miles an hour (or 39 knots). If your aircraft hits all of that, then it’s an ultra-light. 

Advanced Ultra Light 

If you look on our form, there’s a simple “yes” or “no” answer to the question: “advanced ultra-light?” While the answers are monosyllabic, the questions might not be. There are many, many different kinds of aircraft that qualify as “advanced ultra-light.” The actual list the government maintains is lengthy at best. If you believe that your ultra-light aircraft might be advanced, or just want to know definitively, our staff is more than happy to help. 

Registration Made Easy 

An ultra-light aircraft is, in so many ways, ultra-fun. Taking this aircraft up in the sky is a real rush, as it’s so, so different from piloting another kind of aircraft. With that in mind, we know that you want to spend more time up in the air and far, far less on the ground. That’s why we’ve made it easy to fill out these forms from just about anywhere. Instead of having to spend hours in front of your computer, you can fill these out on your phone – from just about anywhere you can get connected to the internet. 

All Forms of Canadian Aircraft Registration 

You might have read to this part of the blog and thought: “hey, that’s all great, but I don’t have an ultra-light aircraft.” In that case, we have all of the forms that you’ll need to register other forms of aircraft in Canada, too. You can get the initial registration, register your aircraft once you purchase it from someone else, even get a replacement for your certificate, should it become lost or mutilated.
