Back to the future for the CGS Hawk single place part 103 legal ultralight aircraft.

Back in 1983 the FAA came to Sun N Fun with a set of scales with the intention of weighing ultralights to make sure they were legal. It was interesting to watch as manufacturers did some very creative things to fit into the 254 lbs. weight limit.

Craft normally equipped with twin cylinder engines were now powered by a single cylinder engine. Recoil starters were removed, props went from 64 inches down to 52 inches, parachute canisters were found to be empty, foam was removed from seats, batons removed from wings. One report even had an engine installed which had no pistons, wrist pins, magneto, or electrical system.

While all this "creative thinking" was happening the people at CGS Hawk were busy flying their planes. CGS had weighed their planes before coming to Sun N Fun. They met the weight limit of 254 lbs! Doing it with a completely enclosed craft, with three axis controls a twin cylinder engine, in both tail dragger and tri-cycle gear configuration - without using the parachute allowance.

This year at Sun N Fun CGS Hawk AGAIN showed up with a U.S. legal part 103 ultralight. Not because of a threat of FAA enforcement but because of public demand! According to Chuck Slusarczyk owner of CGS Aviation and designer of the Hawk, the demand for legal single place ultralights has gone UP since the introduction of Sport Pilot.

According to Chuck, "Many pilots don't want anything to do with Sport Pilot, they want to get back to the pure fun feeling of flying, WITHOUT all the rules and regulations." To meet this demand CGS redesigned their single place ultralight to again fit part 103.

"The weight could have easily been made by just switching to a single cylinder engine, but the Hawk is designed for the average pilot of 225 lbs. or over. Using a twin cylinder 40 hp power engine makes a safer craft with better performance for these pilots."

Over the years for ease of inventory and production CGS has been using tubing designed for their two place craft in the single place. By resizing this tubing back to single place specifications the CGS Hawk once again meets the 254 lbs. weight limit without sacrificing, any safety or performance.

CGS is offering the plane in kit form and it should take between 150 and 300 hours to complete.
