Well Kitty can mark that off his buckcat list.

The cat looks like he's done this before.

I agree. The pilot certainly doesn't looked shocked. Neither human occupant seems willing to try to grab the cat and if they did, one of 'Fluffy's' nine lives may have been lost in the process. (depending on how many it had left to begin with) Cute video, though.

I think if you noticed the way the pilot's eyes just about popped out when he caught a glimpse of the cat that for a brief moment he was indeed shocked, and in that brief moment he must have relaxed on the controls as the craft's speed dropped, but then he quickly sorted that out.

As a non-pilot, but having read many squawks here about how pilots must keep their cool in all situations, I love the pilot's expression, and his immediate return to calm attention to his flight, when he realizes the cat is present.

I wish we could hear the conversation between pilot and passenger, or between pilot and ground.

Glad everyone landed safely (I'm presuming the cat landed safely when it leapt from the wing at the end of the flight).

PIC did not do his Cat Scan on pre-flight. Lol

His expression is priceless! Gets me everytime.
sgbelverta
Cool and calm. And the pilot looked good too.

Since I do own a cat I can safely say some trees just are not high enough! Pilot handled his unexpected passenger like a pro, passenger seemed to enjoy the hitch hiker, and the cat, well, just acted like a cat and waited for the exit door to open.

In my experience, most cats are owned by no one!

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

The cat must be saying: "My first Intro-Flight in an ultralight?! YUPIIIIIII"

I once had a hand-full of panicked cat while driving an 18-wheeler along an interstate highway north of Dallas in a true Texas thunderstorm, at night. Based on my experience (and the insurance claim), what you just saw in that video qualifies as a TRUE in-flight emergency.

There are few things in nature that match the insane destructive energy of a cat who no longer wishes to be held. I once heard someone refer to that occurrence as "pulling the pin on a fur grenade."

Know the feeling -- I done a heavy sweat shirt just to give mine a bath. And I really need a full-face football helmet and shoulder pads to do the job without shedding blood!

You give your cat baths?
Moviela
You're not supposed to give cats a bath, besides it's hard to get the hair off your tongue.
LoralThomas
Once in awhile. He's a really long-haired Maine Coon that is suppose to like water. He didn't get the message! House cat.

LOL..TRYING TO BATH MY 14 YR OLD CAT WOULD BE LIKE TRYING TO SANDPAPER A TIGER'S ASS...IT AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN.
sgbelverta
If you're bathing a cat, there's probably a bloody good reason, ie. skunk encounter. Then the little darlings are more cooperative, sort of.

Suffering succotash, I'll get that tweety bird now.

And, apparently their own pilot. The two of mine do!

Look like purrrrfect take off and landing to me.

Pre-flight?

Feline "stowaway". Wonder if the PIC did a pre-check walk around. The cat went where no other cats have gone before. Hope he/she enjoyed the ride.

The happy ending is the best finish

Frankly, I just hope the pilot stays on the ground until he learns two things:
1. Learn to find out what that dark area in the wing he should have seen in the translucent wing might be. The ending of the story might be much worse had it been a hornets nest!
2. Learn how to scan the sky when airborne. His next flight may also end less happily when other objects come from outside his tunnel vision "scan".

I think the cat has already learned its needed lesson; fly with a different pilot! LOL!
RobinSandquist
The video was immediately suspect to when the camera's preset angle is offset to capture the cat. In addition the hair on the cat and the people doesn't seem to always match the background when wind blown.
Flightdog
Something about this video just does not seem right. The pilot notices the cat at about the 0:40 mark. One would think he would mention it to the passenger and upon hearing this, she would immediately turn her head to look at the cat. Instead, she does not appear to notice this feline flyer until the 1:37 mark.

I agree with the possible conclusion raised by someone here that this is not the first time this cat has taken a circuit around the airport. I just hope the pilot did not put the cat out there so that he could make a "cool" video.
Tiggerflute
Since the cat wasn't tethered to the plane, it had plenty of opportunity to jump off during acceleration if it wasn't having fun. It's pretty hard to force a cat to stick around when and where it doesn't want to, as the many comments attest indicate. So I too think it was a seasoned flyer, and am not too worried about coercion. I see PETA hasn't taken a stand.
I also noticed it didn't seem to be complaining much.
