Aerotrekking – another low-impact way to fly

photo6_sml.jpgOne problem with exploring some of the great backcountry of the U.S. is that in order to do that, you kind of have to wreck it. If you’re four-wheeling across arid lands, you’re leaving tracks and ruts, belching exhaust, and disturbing wildlife, and it’s not the greenest way to go.

But if you’re soaring above the terrain in an ultralight sport aircraft, you leave no mark on the earth. The tiny, lightweight flyers burn just about two or three gallons of fuel per hour. And no roadkill.
