Ultralight Aircraft for disabled pilot

A Belite customer challenged us to improve cockpit access for our Belite ultralight aircraft; the customer has some challenges; especially with his legs.  Getting in and out of our aircraft is a real challenge.

As a result, we were pleased to improve cockpit access by lowering the fuselage right side door height.  We cut off the existing steel tube and welded a tube about 5 inches lower; with additional length on the tube to add strength.

Here’s a photo:  compare the near and far sides of the fuselage to see the difference in the steel structure.  You can see that the nearer side has a lower entry level.
