The Pegasus Quik is a British flying wing ultralight trike, designed and produced by Pegasus Aviation and later by P&M Aviation
The Quik’s design goal was to produce a faster trike and to this end a smaller wing in both span and area than normal is employed. The initial wing used has on a span of 8.0 m (26.2 ft) and an area of 10.6 m2 (114 sq ft). The smaller wing also gives improved turbulence resistance, but at the cost of a higher stall speed.
