About Powered Sport Flying Magazine

the only print magazine that focuses on personal aviation every issue!

Powered Sport Flying was formerly known as UltraFlight Magazine. Together, Powered Sport Flying and UltraFlight have nearly 25 years of experience reporting on personal sport aviation. Beginning in 1994, UltraFlight Magazine pioneered regular reporting on aspects of aviation that at the time were not given regular media attention. Aircraft like powered parachutes and powered paragliders got their earliest support from UltraFlight Magazine right along with conventional ultralights.

UltraFlight was also the first of the aviation media to develop a regularly broadcast radio show dedicated to powered sport aviation, the UltraFlight Radio Show. That show was created in 2000, before iTunes or iPods were even introduced. The show grew with the technology to remain at the forefront of aviation reporting in the sport aviation market until the show went into hiatus in 2011.

UltraFlight grew with the ultralight and light sport aviation movement to what it is today, the only newsstand quality magazine (and now the only magazine at all!) completely devoted to the fun and adventure of single and two-seat powered sport aviation. In January of 2010, UltraFlight Magazine became Powered Sport Flying Magazine. The name change was made to reflect the larger audience and the full range of what the magazine had already grown to cover.

Today Powered Sport Flying Magazine remains one of the few magazines that is read cover-to-cover by subscribers. Powered Sport Flying offers an independent voice on government regulation as well as showing what many magazines forget, the true joy of flight. It does this by showing the adventures of people from around the country and around the world enjoying the freedom of flight. With excellent print quality, great editing and stunning photography, it is a great way to stay informed about a great sport.

  • A bit naughty

    You never lose the buzz of flying. Every time you take off, it feels a bit naughty, as if you’re doing something humans shouldn’t really do.

    Matt Jones Managing Director of Boultbee Flight Academy, the only Spitfire school in the world. August 2011
  • Caution:

    Cape does not enable user to fly.

    Batman costume warning label Wal-Mart, 1995
