The demonstrator has arrived at Barton Aerodrome. Mark Jackson has had P&M's new baby there for a few weeks now. Initially the wing was set up for slow flying so Mark had been unable to give it a good test. "It flies and handles very much like a Quick" Mark told me which was probably due to the way the wing had been configured and he was hoping to get Roger down from P&M to make the necessary changes.
Here are a few photos I took whilst at the airfield last night. Hopefully weather permitting we'll get a good fly out in the Quik-R and will be able to report back to you all on how she flies and handles. Initial indications are that this is a superb piece of engineering if the review by Geoff Hall in the Nov-Dec 2008 edition of BMAA's Microlight Flying magazine is anything to go by. Well only time will tell? I love my Quik 912s and like even more the sleek but unusual look of the new topless wing on the Quik-R
Let us know if there are any specific aspects of the new Quik R you would like to know about and we will endeavour to cover this in our review. If there are any photos you would like us to take again let us have your comments below.

To the initiated the current MicrolightWings.com
blog site is a Wordpress blog, hosted on our own servers. Other than a few initial set-up configurations and posts as well as a load of automatically generated YouTube microlight videos, I have not really done much with it as I have been concentrating on getting the framework of our main site developed behind the scenes.
After a long and fairly tedious process, I have taken the plunge to start to move the blog into our main Joomla site, which will hopefully pay dividends in the long run.
This is the 1st in a new post using our new blog system within the main site and will be the first of many to come. We have also incorporated a new comment systems, which will allow all our visitors, guests and registered members to add comments to all our articles, reviews, posts and media as they get developed over the coming months.
This is just a quick update to all our visitors.
