Powerful two stroke
Precision handling for all-day flying!
The Quik GT Lite is a two seat aircraft with maximum performance, combining the 13sqm GT450 wing with the smooth performing Rotax 582 oil injected engine. This aircraft is a true high performance entry level, two seat aircraft. The Quik GT Lite has the new, vented, under-surface wing. This aircraft is supplied without the wingtip fins normally found on a GT450 wing. However tip fins are available as an optional extra if you would like them. The Quik GT Lite comes with everything you need to go flying, including the Explorer wide wheels and spats, electric trim, front brake, and landing light.
GT 450 Wing
GT450 Wing (cruise 47-74 kts)
The GT450 wing is very popular among flight instructors for its speed range, light and predictable handling and optimal flight characteristics for beginners to advanced pilots. Adjustments in the washout tips are available to tune the wing to the desired cruise speed, and the the electric trim system also available to set speed in flight. The latest model GT450 wing, with the under-surface vents, can be flown with wingtip fins for great stability at speed, or without the wingtip fins for improved roll handling
The GT450 wing, as well as the GTR and Quik R wings, come now standard with the under-surface vents. The under-surface venting system is very efficient in stabilizing the wing and keeping a consistent leading edge shape and pressure. They provide faster and lighter roll control and wingtip fins are no longer necessary.
Traditional King Post
The GT450 is a traditional king post braced wing, reduces weight and cost, yet provides great handling and overall performance.
Quik GT Lite Chassis
Fiberglass full pod and light weight side skirt
Light weight fiberglass pod and instrument panel. Side skirt includes 2 zipper documents pockets. Large fiberglass wheel spats for better tracking at speed. Also included is the easy to remove engine covers and aerodynamic mast cover. Several beautiful colors to choose from with matching wing color combinations.
Conveniently located hand throttle and choke levers
Hand throttle and choke levers are conveniently located next to the pilot and at easy access for the flight instructor. The hand throttle allows for very fine adjustments in flight speed when cruising at altitude. The foot throttle works in conjunction with the hand throttle. The speed trim button is also located next to the hand throttle for easy one-hand adjustments of cruise speed and trim.
Electric Speed-Trim System
Your QUIK chassis comes standard with an electric speed trim system that is compatible with all P&M Aviation wings (QUIK, QUIK R, GT450 and GTR wings). The popular proven electric 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. Pull the lever up to slow down, push the lever down to speed up. It is that easy.
65 Litres Fuel Tank
The 65 Litre polyethelene fuel tank is conveniently mounted under the seats. Provides easy access to refill and best balance the weight of the fuel. Fuel-flow meter available with the MGL Extreme EMS system.
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 specious allowing ample room for 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.
Large Touring Windscreen
A two part large touring windscreen is included. Easy to remove with snap-locks also includes a nice padded cover for protection during transport. The windscreen has been designed with edge deflectors to channel the wind efficiently channel the wind stream around the cockpit area to keep pilot and passenger protected from the wind at speed.
Gas Strut Assist

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.
