    I'm thinking Issan when I return from my contract in the UK.

    Get a regular 4-wheeler instead. A lot quieter too.

    I've seen the backpack version in pickups around Ubon and about 3 or 4 single seat trikes for sale outside a motorbike repair shop halfway between Soon Heng shopping centre and the Sisaket bus station.

    They must be legal. There should be some clubs out there where you can get info.

    Of course I would do the training. It looks like it could be a great hobby and not so expensive.

    There's a bloke who used to use one of those you wear on your back, he used to go down the beach everyday and fly over the sea between Pattaya and Jomtien, sadly oneday the engine conked out and he landed in the sea and was dragged down by it and drowned, look pretty smart though

    Have fun.

    Restricted Airspace And Danger Areas


    Prohibited areas, restricted areas and danger areas within Bangkok FIR are listed in ENR 5.1. Activation of areas
    subject to intermittent activity is notified well in advance by NOTAM giving reference only to the designation of the
    area.

    Thailand Air Defense Identification Zone (TADIZ)
    1) The Thailand Air Defence Identification Zone (TADIZ) is hereby established to cover the airspace over the land and sea areas starting on the Thai border at 100000N thence along the national border between the Kingdom of Thailand and Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia to the coast 113900N1025500E then to 094830N1014630E 085200N1021300E 082900N1024300E 074930N1030530E 072200N1034230E 072000N1033900E 070300N1030600E 065300N1023400E 065000N1022112E 062748N1020936E 062730N1021000E 061430N1020536E thence westward along the national border between the Kingdom of Thailand and Malaysia
    to 062524N100000E 063200N0995300E 062830N0993912E 063012N0993324E 062854N0993042E 061824N0992730E 061618N0991918E 061800N0990642E 071500N0980000E 094500N0963830E 094035N0972636E 093215N0975620E 093015N0980600E 093520N0981300E 094300N0981610E 094910N0981950E 095400N0982430E 095700N0982730E 095510N0983200E 095610N0983305E then to the starting point (see GEN 3.3-4).

    2) Since Bangkok Area Control Centre (VTBBZRZX) requires flight plans for all aircraft, IFR or VFR, operating into Bangkok FIR, it is compulsory that all aircraft, destined for an aerodrome within TADIZ or overflying TADIZ to
    submit flight plans at the point of departure for relaying to Bangkok Area Control Centre.

    3) Aircraft flying along the airways shall report at the normal reporting points. Aircraft approaching TADIZ off airways shall report the estimated time over TADIZ boundary at least 10 minutes in advance.

    4) If unable to establish and maintain radio communication with appropriate ATC agency, the pilot may contact the nearest Ground Control Intercept (GCI) frequency 127.0 and 331.3 MHz site for positive identification prior to
    entering TADIZ.

    5) Aircraft will be intercepted by Royal Thai Air Force interceptors if:
    - They do not adhere to the Air Defence Identification Procedures or the Air Traffic Control Regulations and Procedures.
    - They deviate from their current flight plan, fail to passing over a point, or operate 10 NM over land or 20 NM over sea from the centre line of the airway assigned.
    6) The aircraft which is intercepted by RTAF interceptors shall strictly comply with the interception procedure in accordance with Annex 2, Chapter 3 paragraph 3.8. The visual signal in accordance with Appendix 1 paragraph 2 will be used if direct communication between interceptors and intercepted aircraft can not be established. (see ENR 1.12-3).
    7) Aircraft under interception will be attacked if they fail to obey any instructions given by RTAF interceptors.
    8) The authority of the RTAF will not be responsible for any damage caused to aircraft by the interceptors of other devices.
    9) The owner of the aircraft will be charged for expenditures used by the interceptors sent up to investigate and identify.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    I agree, go for it!

    Training is soooo over-rated, you know so much more than these silly instructors anyway...
