ULOPF (Ulra Light Aircrafts Pilots Federation, est. 1997) speaks for Lithuania ultralight pilot interests in discussions with the national government. We are committed to protecting the rights and privileges of all ultralight pilots and owners to assure freedom of flight in a minimally controlled flying environment. Our only focus is ultralight flying.
The organization is run by an elected Board of Directors, each responsible for one area (ultralight aircrafts, delta-trikes, moto-paragliders and autogyros).
The organisation is 300+ members strong and responsible for 600+ ultralight aircraft pilots licencing.
ULOPF is has the rights to issue microlight aircarft licences, according to Civil Aviation Administration Directors order no 4R-97, 2009-May-06 (http://www.caa.lt/index.php?-1820530558)
