The Easy Riser’s airframe was developed in the mid 1970s and was used as a hang glider until 1975, when it became a powered ultralight. The Easy Riser used back and forth weight shift changes by the pilot to affect pitch changes and used rudders on each wing end to affect turns. The Easy Riser was manufactured in kit form as an alternative to the delta wing (rogallo) design on the market.

Tom App assembled his own Easy Riser from a kit in 1977-78 in Manawa, Wisconsin. His Easy Riser was never flown higher than ten feet off the ground and was powered by an 11 hp McCullough go-cart engine. In 1997, Tom donated his Easy Riser to the EAA AirVenture Museum.
