Ultimate all round performance!
A development from the world record beating QuikR, the GTR has a larger strutted wing with an area of 13sqm to give the ultimate in all round performance, from good precise slow speed handling to fast high speed cruise. The GTR wing is the first wing to introduce STARS which is a unique stability and roll system that automatically adjusts the washout rods and leading edge tension in flight for optimum roll and trim authority. The wing lower surface is also vented to ensure that the wing profile is kept at its optimum throughout the speed range of 55-90mph.

Comfortable seating available as S-LSA or E-LSA.
GTR Explorer Wing (cruise 55-95)
The GTR Explorer is P&M's newest wing. Built especially for the PulsR and as high performance wing also for the QUIK Chassis. The GTR is a perfect match for long effortless, efficient cross country adventures. Not easily affected by turbulence, the GTR flies like your on rails! Electric pitch control and STARS roll control trim make flying effortless! The wing can be folded on the aircraft for ease of loading into your cargo trailer for that ultimate motor home adventure!
GTR Explorer Wing (cruise 55-95)
Folding the wing over the trike is possible with our strutted wings (QUIKR and GTR). Folding the wing over the trike does not take long and with some practice you may be able to have it done in 10-15min. Basically remove upper and lower center battens, release the tension, and let the wing fold backwards. The wing can also be folded with the wing mast lowered which will greatly reduce overall height for transportation.
In-flight Roll Trim
Efficient roll trim system allows you to do minor roll adjustments in-flight.
STARS Trim System
The GTR and QUIKR 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 (Page 6). to View the 2015 News Letter in .PDF
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.
Explorer Package standard
The explorer package is standard and includes larger tundra tires and wheel spats as well as improved rear disk brake system and optional front disk brakes. Awesome off-field performance and great looks.
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, QUIKR, 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.
17 Gallon Fuel Tank
The 17 gallon 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
The QUIK chassis comes standard with a gas strut assist to raise/lower the wing/mast. Also, with the strutted wings you have the option to quickly fold the wing on top of the trike for storage or transport.
Flight Instrument Layout
The aircraft comes standard with all analog instruments including ASI, VSI, ALT, Compass, analog engine monitoring, electric trim indicator light, charging system light, on/off key and start button. Optional are Enigma EFIS, Enigma Extreme EMS, Trig in-dash Radio and Transponder, breakers and on/off switches, and more.
The QUIK chassis has a place under the seat for the BRS 1050 Softpack that provides good protection from wind and the elements. The skirt comes with cutoff for the BRS deploy and the BRS rocket. The wing also has pockets for routing the BRS lines.
Heavy duty trike/engine/windscreen covers and 3-blade prop covers
Your aircraft includes a heavy duty trike/engine/windscreen cover that protects your investment during storage, transport or from the elements. Also blade covers are included with the standard 3-blade Warp Drive propeller. The covers fit tight around your trike and engine and provides straps and clips to keep it in place. It all folds into a small bag easy to carry with you in longer trips.
Handy removable storage bag
Your aircraft includes a very handy removable storage bag that clips under the pilot seat. The bag can hold quite a bit and also include two zippered handy pockets.
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.

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.
