I had a fantastic flight just north of Toulouse. It was an absolute thrill to be at one with the air. It was so warm while flying we had short sleeves. The views across the area were astounding and the pilot took great pains to point out various items in the landscape. Was a bit astounded when he took both his hands off the control bar but he said ultralights, as they are called in France, are extremely stable when at their correct cruising speed.
