    If you’ve never been in a weight-shift control aircraft or if you just like to have fun…Tracy can hook you up! While visiting Colorado Springs, I saw Tracy’s bird in the sky—googled it, found his website and decided to give it a try. I had a great time with Fly Colorado Ultralights. Tracy’s love and enthusiasm for what he does is contagious! While I hold a Private Pilot—Rotorcraft (Helicopter) rating, I’ve been on a long hiatus. After one flight with Tracy and his Evolution Revo I’ve decided to end the hiatus and pursue a new rating.

    Flying in an Ultralight has always been on my “bucket list”. I did an Internet search and found Colorado Ultralights. I contacted Tracy and we set up an appointment to perform a flight. We had to reschedule once due to weather, but on August 12th, we got to fly.
    The experience was awesome. Tracy explained all the flight criteria and before I knew it we were in the sky. The views were spectacular, we got to see things I didn’t even know where in the area we fly over. We got to fly over a house I used to won. We even saw some turkeys and deer. Tracy let me fly the craft and I got to experience how easy it was to control.
    I recommend this to anyone who wants to see the ground view like nothing you’ve ever seen before. With Tracy at the helm, I felt totally safe. He’s a great instructor and knows his aircraft inside and out.
    Try it – You won’t regret it!

    Sept 8th 2017. Tracy took me up around 9am, and conditions were good for flying. The Rockies were a little hazy due to smoke from the fires in Montana and Canada but we still had pretty good viability. We shadowed the mountains and flew some great looking range land. We had a little turbulence but nothing to be concerned about. Tracy is a great instructor and guide. I never felt in any danger and Tracy’s Ultralight is in great shape and well maintained. As a safety measure he has the latest parachute technology fitted to his machine. Tracy is also very accommodating, I am a wheelchair user, T2-3 injury level, he worked with me to get me in his machine. I was well secured and was able to fly the machine for a while. If I ever decide to pursue this I would probably have to make a few adjustments to hold myself. With that said I would not need to change anything if I was going to just be a passenger. Don’t wait, Book your flight today! :) Thanks Tracy.

    What a life changing experience. Tracy has a true love and calling for flying weight-shift controlled aircrafts. He educated me on the aircraft and procedures and made me feel comfortable and confident on the ground and in the sky. After take off he showed me Colorful Colorado from a birds eye view. What an amazing view of Colorado, learning more about the area and the view of pikes peak is unforgettable. EVERYONE should feel this rush in life. It was amazing to watch, learn and then to do. Tracy showed me and explained to me everything he was doing and why. After being in the air a while he then offered me the chance to take control of my own adrenaline and take control and fly. Flying this aircraft was the greatest feeling in the world. I found Tracy by chasing things to accomplish on my bucket list. And now the other things on my list are going to have to wait because I can say that I will be back to finish my schooling to become a pilot and could not be happier and more thrilled to learn from the best. I have been into unique adrenaline for years now and Tracy offers the best experience and future education in this beautiful and unique thrill. Thank you Tracy it has only been a few days since my flight and its all I can talk about. I cant wait to get back out there and be in the sky with you.

    Thanks Again :)

    One of the most amazing things I’ve ever done. An absolute must for sight see-ears and adrenaline junkies. Tracy is a great guy and he knows what he’s doing. If there are any fears or uncertainties of how safe the flight is he will inform you of all the failsafe installed into the aircraft including a Parachute that can be deployed.

    I highly recommend the video package as well. So worth it!

    A truly wonderful and exhilarating experience! Tracy was an excellent coach and very accommodating to my needs and answered all of my questions. I truly enjoyed being in the sky above Colorado taking in all it’s beauty and majesty. I was completely comfortable and felt safe. If you plan to take a chance on this adventure, pay the extra dollar for 90 minutes–you will be glad you did! You see more, enjoy more and are simply able to get the most worthwhile adventure. Additionally, get the video package so you have a memory to take home. :)
    I truly enjoyed this experience and will one day do it again. It was both unique and fun. Thanks Tracy for a scenic, safe and fun ride! Until next time.

    I’ve just had my first ever ultralight flight and lesson at the same time with Tracy. It was a cold November morning in the Rockies, and I really thought it was going to a miserable experience, but Tracy fixed me up with all the warm clothing I needed, including foot warmers inside my sneakers. I was never cold. For an open cockpit, you feel amazingly safe in the vehicle. I’m not afraid of heights, but I’d say to those that are, flying in these type vehicles would not scare you, or freak you out like a roller coaster would. Tracy is a great teacher, and I learned a lot. The vehicle is very stable, and nimble. I can’t wait for my next lesson, and I hope to buy my own some day.

    I was one of Tracy’s oldest students when I undertook the task of getting my pilot’s license. I built a trike from a kit with a 912 ULS engine. Tracy’s attention to detail and the many years of flying experience put me in the air in my own trike. When it comes to finding a C.F.I. I cannot recommend any one with better qualifications and abilities. I can only say that the attentions to airworthiness, weather, and cautious flying is of the utmost importance.
    Thank You Tracy

    My kids gave me the awesome gift of a flight with Fly Colorado Ultralights and Tracy – and what a gift it was. We picked a near-perfect day weatherwise for an outstanding trip. Tracy selected a great place to explore with sightings of elk and antelope. The entire flight was a real lesson in how ultralights operate, and the hands-on time was terrific. Tracy thoughtfully and carefully explained each and every operation, which made the entire flight as educational as it was fun.
