Simply the best!
Ultimate touring flexwing
Whether you’re going on a long cross country flight or just over the horizon to a fly-in, this aircraft will draw a crowd upon landing! The unique aerodynamic monocoque composite carbon fiber body shell provides increased strength and rigidity, all at minimum weight. The wrap-over windscreen produces optimum pilot and passenger comfort while retaining full visibility. The cantilever sprung composite main undercarriage soaks up the roughest fields, making rough-field landings an most enjoyable experience. The large 20 gallon fuel tank gives you all day flying without the worry of fuel stops. Add an optional BRS parachute for a maximum 1042 lb. take-off weight. In summary the PulsR is at the cutting edge of microlight design and one where others simply follow.
There are simply no compromises. The most advanced wing paired with a monocoque carbon chassis it is the ultimate cross-country aircraft of its kind.
Puls R 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

Puls R Chassis
Carbon Fiber Carriage
The unique aerodynamic monocoque composite carbon fiber body shell provides increased strength and rigidity, all at minimum weight. The wrap-over windscreen produces optimum pilot and passenger comfort while retaining full visibility. The cantilever sprung composite main undercarriage soaks up the roughest fields, making rough-field landings an most enjoyable experience. The aircraft comes standard with a heavy duty aircraft cover and a separate winshiled/wind canopy cover, wheel spats storage bags and 3-blade prop. covers.
Wrap Over Windscreen
The all new wrap over windscreen improves the aerodynamic performance of the aircraft greatly, while creating industry leading cockpit comfort! You can easily fly with a ball cap and headset! Reduced wind buffeting reduces pilot fatigue during long flights.
The canopy is fitted with 4 guides and strong latches for easy removal and replacement. Also includes a complete padded canopy cover for protection while storage or transport.
The pilot seat slides fore and aft to accommodate tall and short pilots with equal comfort. The rear seat can be adjusted up and down. This is GREAT for flight instructors who need to see over their student’s shoulders to monitor the flight instruments and assess pilot performance. If you have a tall passenger, no problem. Lower the seat for more headroom.
Nothing soaks up a rough field like the new composite suspension!
Electric Speed-Trim System
The popular proven electric flight speed trim system works very well. It is conveniently located at easy reach and next to the hand throttle control. It allows for complete speed trim range as well as very precise, small speed adjustments. Push the button forward to speed up and backwards to slow down, it is that easy. The trim speed range for the PulsR is aproximately 47-82 kts.
75 Litres Fuel Tank
With 75 Litres fuel on board you can extend your flight time and range!
The cockpit is spacious and comfortable. Entry and exit is easier than ever, as you can step anywhere without worries. The carbon fiber body will support your weight anywhere you step in the cockpit. The dash is spacious allowing ample room for EFIS, EMS, Transponder, Radio, Analogs, GPS and your iPad for navigation. Both seating and foot rests are adjustable to accommodate pilot and passenger comfort. The seating is plush and supportive. Seat restraints are easily adjusted. Flight controls are placed for ease of use and optimal visibility.
The engine is mounted behind a strong carbon firewall that greatly reduces noise and vibration, while increasing safety for the aircraft occupants. The engine fiberglass covers are secured with aircraft grade quick release d-link studs for easy removal and replacement. The top cowling can be removed for regular pre-flight access. With the bottom cowling removed it will give you complete and very easy access to the entire engine and systems for service.
This is just a part of the team that comes “bundled” with your P&M Aircraft
Your aircraft comes “bundled” with a great team of designers, builders, engineers and support. We want to make sure you are safe, and your investment in your aircraft well supported for years to come.
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.
