Pegasus 912 Quantum – Flexwing
$460month

Starting 25 April 20191 month

The Quantum is a tandem seat, flexible wing, weightshift controlled microlight. This aircraft has proved itself to be one of the most popular weightshift aircraft in the world today, being used by the majority of schools in the UK. It is extremely forgiving, having the mild stall characteristics normally associated with lower performance craft, yet still producing good cruise speeds, superb handling and very fast climb rates. In order to offer a personal service courses are strictly limited in numbers and, therefore, it is important to book early to avoid disappointment. Courses normally run from Monday to Friday, with beginner training taking place mainly in the mornings and the late afternoons. Lessons last approximately 1½ – 2 hours including a minimum of 1 hour’s flying training (taken from engine start to engine stop). Courses can be completed in several stages but remember, if you come back, a certain amount of revision will be required before you can pick up where you left off. The longer you leave it between courses, the more revision will be required.

You can complete your training from start to finish with us even including any tests or examinations by our staff CAA Examiner. You can also start your training here, which will be ‘signed off’ in your logbook by our UK, CAA Approved Flying Instructors when you leave. You can then complete your training when you go home to your local school. Alternatively, courses can be structured to take into account any previous training that you have completed.

Physical Requirements

Potential pilots can start training at the age of 14 but those aiming to fly solo must be at least 16 years old and to hold a licence they need to be at least 17 years of age. Student pilots on our courses must be reasonably fit and in good health. In order to fly solo in Portuguese airspace an EASA Medical Either a Class 1 2 or LAPL Certificate downloadable from the CAA or NPPL website. *****Please NOTE*****  The UK self-declaration medical certificate acceptable in UK airspace is NOT valid in Portuguese Airspace. This is due to it having no medical professional involvement and is not a medical simply a declaration.

 

In order to handle the aircraft safely they must be between 1.50m – 1.93m tall and weigh between 45kg – 110kg when dressed ready to fly. Furthermore although weightshift aircraft are exhilarating and immense fun to fly they demand a higher degree of skill and physical strength compared to three axis aircraft, therefore older people (50+) and those of small stature often find they make more rapid progress on the three axis microlight.
