filip_sWe are very sorry to have to report the death after a relatively short illness of Skyranger designer and BestOff principal Philippe Prevot.

‘Father of the Sky’ – Phillippe was well loved by all who met him. He was polite, sincere and had a great passion for his aircraft and the community of owners and builders. He is a great loss to the Microlight community in France and worldwide. He leaves behind a loving family, and our thoughts are with them at this time.  In the 15 years we had business with him he soon became a firm friend and inspiration and we feel honoured to have known him.

So what happens to his designs and the 1500 Skyranger and Nynja aircraft out there? – We are proud to report that Philippe’s family have chosen Flylight to continue the legacy. At the time of writing we have an agreement and are in the process of handover of the business and rights to Flylight.

We are working with the suppliers and component manufactures and at this time are able to take orders for kit deliveries with the standard delay from order to delivery remaining at around 8 weeks. We have a stock of spares and more arriving soon so are also able to supply spares and keep aircraft flying.

We believe passionately in Philippes products and ethos and will try our best to build on the wonderful legacy he created..

We are working on finding the details of trade and dealer contacts and will be getting in touch with everyone soon. Such contacts are welcome to contact us directly before then – paul@flylight.co.uk.
