People use small wings to rest and refresh. The joy and the sensation that the flight gives is indescribable and best of all – you get the opportunity to enjoy the scenery every time. Of course, each country uses ultra-light flying machines according to its specific domestic needs. For example, in Mexico and the Caribbean countries, small aviation provides services for tourists who want to look around from above, take photos or visit the exotics islands. In Indonesia it is used as a taxi and personal transport. In Canada, fishermen explore the fish stocks. In Africa, specialists count fauna from small planes. The benefits of ultralight aircraft have already been appreciated by geophysicists, liaison officers, police officers, rescuers, tele operators, foresters, oil workers and people of other professions. In many countries, small planes and powered airplanes are widely used for agricultural work. This is especially true of the USA, Italy, France, and Austria.
