The Skyriders company builds a European version of the Ultralight Flight Phantom, which is identical to the American machine except for the power pack and a larger fuel tank.
Ultralight Flight fit a Kawasaki TA440 engine and, while this variant remains available in Europe, the popularity of Robin engines in Europe has led Skyriders to standardise on the Robin EC44 power unit.
