Icarus II ... the beginnings

Experimental Aviation Association's Ultralight Hall of Fame
Inaugural Inductee

Initial recipient, 1991, and namesake for United States Ultralight Association’s annual “Moody” award recognizing outstanding contributions to ultralight aviation. Southeast Wisconsin Aviation Hall of Fame inductee, 1998. Featured in numerous periodicals.

JANUARY 29, 2000

Students at East Hillsborough Independent School were enthralled to watch John Moody, Father of the Modern Ultralight, swoop low over the pond and land in the back yard. After answering questions about the technical and mechanical aspects of the aircraft, he showed an historical video. This explained the trial and error process he experienced. Mr. Moody completed the first ultralight aircraft foot launch without benefit of a hill or cliff on March 15,1975.

In his inspiring discussion, Mr. Moody encourages the students not to give up on their creative ideas and dreams. He answered numerous questions about principles of aviation that he used to invent his version of the ultralight. Moody’s story has appeared in Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, The Smithsonian, and National Geographic as well as numerous other periodicals. He performed a one-of-a-kind comedy routine at air shows until October 17, 2004, when an accident ended his air show performing.  He is currently available as a speaker for adult groups as well as schools.




1.  God wants to enter into a personal relationship with us through His Son, Jesus Christ.
           "Jesus saith unto him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me." (John 14:6)

2.  We must recognize that we are sinners and that our sin separates us from a Holy God.
           "For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)

3.  We need to understand that a penalty must be paid for our sin.
           "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our    Lord." (Romans 6:23)

4.  We must realize that the penalty for our sin has been paid and satisfied in full (GREAT NEWS!!!).
           "But God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)

5.  We must embrace and trust God's Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior.
            "For whosoever calleth upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." (Romans 10:13)                        "For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.  He that believeth on Him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  ......He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believe not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him."  (John 3:16-18,36)

TODAY, will you believe that the Lord Jesus Christ lived, died on the cross as the perfect Lamb of God thereby paying the penalty for your sins, and then rose from the grave and now lives forever thereby proving that God had accepted that payment?  Your decision will determine where you will spend forever! I invite you, my friends, to spend forever with the Lord Jesus Christ, other believers, and me.
