More room, more comfort…
The HypeR is the exciting all new flexwing from P&M Aviation built to give you more room, more comfort and more fun. Designed as the result of extensive market research, the HypeR gives the pilot, passenger or instructor the ultimate freedom to enjoy the skies due to its low drag design, Cantilever sprung undercarriage, and fully adjustable front and rear seating positions making it the perfect flying experience for all shapes and sizes. The quickly removable wrap round windscreen significantly reduces wind buffet for both the pilot and passenger and the all composite body panels ensure loose items are securely contained. An optional BRS parachute fitment is available, allowing a maximum take-off weight of 472.5kg and the 65 litre fuel tank ensures long distance flying without the worry of fuel stops. The large front panel enables you to fit any choice of instruments and the fully adjustable seating and foot rests make the HypeR the perfect choice for all sized pilots and passengers. The huge under seat storage area also makes the HypeR ideal for the long distance adventurer.
The Rotax 912ULS engine is housed underneath a quickly removable cowling allowing unrestricted access for routine maintenance and daily preflight checks. The HypeR also comes with the proven electric trim system and the popular explorer wheels as standard.
The HypeR is mated with the proven GTR 13sqm topless wing which offers unrivalled trim speeds from 48-83kts with complete confidence. The STARS (stability and roll system) provides ease of handling at all speeds and in all conditions. The adjustable radiator cover ensures quick warm up times and total control of temperatures during flight and the large built in LED landing light gives added visibility and safety.
Quik GTR Wing
GTR Explorer Wing (Trim Speed 48 – 83 kts)
The GTR Explorer is P&M’s newest wing. Built especially for the PulsR, the GTR is a perfect match for long effortless, efficient cross country adventures. Not easily affected by turbulence, the GTR flies like you are on rails! Electric pitch control and STARS roll control trim make flying effortless! The wing can be folded over the aircraft for ease of loading into your cargo trailer for that ultimate motor home adventure!
In-flight Roll Trim
Efficient roll trim system allows you to do minor roll adjustments in-flight.
STARS Trim System
The GTR and QUIK R wing have a patented roll augmentation system called STARS (stability and roll system).
Flexwings generally have light handling at high speed but become progressively more stable and heavier to maneuver at lower speeds.
The Stars system works with the trimmer so that the more nose-up (slow) trim is applied, the more the STARS system works to increase roll response. If you are interested in more detailed information on how the system is setup and works please read the Tech Topic: How the Electric Trim and STARS system works in our Winter 2015 News Letter

Quik R beats the World
Quik GTR and Quik GT450
To Dauphin Island, Alabama
This was a very fun trip as I joined Gary from Beach Flight Aviation for a flight from Jack Edwards Airport to Dauphin Island and back, in the beautiful Gulf Coast of Alabama.
The weather was spectacular and we were able to do some video with different cameras and camera angles.
The GT450 (Yellow Trike) and GTR (Orange Trike) wings are identical in size, however, the strutted GTR wing is a bit faster as it produces less drag. Using the Electric Trim incorporated in the QUIK chassis, we were able to trim the GTR down in speed slightly so to match that of the GT450, and fly together during the entire flight.
I hope you enjoy the video as much as we enjoyed producing it.
