Is the New P&M Quik R, set to revolutionize the flexwing microlight world?
I don’t know about you, but if you are like me? a flexwing pilot that is and pay through the nose for hanger space! and the thought of being able to save all that hard earned cash on hangerage has a big pull then read on. Saving your cash and ditching the hanger space is great until you contemplate the prospect of having to rig your machine once you have delivered it to your airfield of choice! Ahhhh, not for me thanks. However I am told that in the not too distant past, well the last century to be precise this is what my fellow flexwing owners did and some still have to do it today, with hanger space being similar to joining that fancy golf club where you end up on an indefinately long list. Well now that Mr Jim Cunliffe and his wonderful team at P&M Aviation not far from hear in sunny Rochdale, UK have developed what has to be a revolution in the flexwing world, the new Quik R. A folding wing on a Quik trike! A long time coming… I’ve been wondering how long it would be before someone designed such a simple concept I hear you say. Whilst the concept may seem straight forward enough, the engineering complexity is not and again it appears those chaps in Rochdale have done it again.
