The Pegasus Quantum


Standard Summary

The Pegasus Quantum embodies all the core values for which Pegasus Aviation have become internationally renowned.

Design innovation, engineering excellence, superb build quality, a definite sense of style, unequalled comfort and most important of all - peerless flying characteristics. It is an aircraft that proves the old aviation saying 'If it looks right, it is right'.

The aircrafts revolutionary wing features an 85% double surface with internal floating cross tubes and washout rods along with an in-flight trimmer for cruise speeds from 55mph – 68mph.

The trike unit is available with a full choice of Rotax engines and boasts a wide spacious pod with fully enclosed sealed nose-wheel and plenty of foot room.

This aircraft is no longer in production, details provided for information only. Full spares and support are still available and will remain so for the foreseeable future. Complete aircraft can still be manufactured but by special request only.

It was also chosen by competition pilot Simon Baker for his successful bid for the World Microlight Championship.

Not only has the Quantum met or exceeded all the requirements of CAA BCAR Section S, the toughest microlight certification programme in the world, but also the Q2 wing sailed through the German DULV pitch test.

The secondary safety features include 3-point belts in the front, 4-point in the rear, twin rear brakes with a parking brake system which makes start-up safer.

The 600+ Quantums have been flight tested in some of the most extreme conditions around the world and have returned an outstanding safety record - a comforting thought when you take to the air.

The Quantum features a unique gas strut, which lifts the wing for you during the rigging process, saving your back. The composite seat with integral pilot back-rest still leads the way in comfort, which means you can enjoy your Quantum for longer.

The adjustable pedals and optional modular cushion system mean everyone from the shortest to the tallest can be comfortable in flight.

100kg Pilot and passenger weight capacity. The Quantum is available with three engine options. The Rotax 503 is a simple air-cooled two-cylinder 52 hp two-stroke engine that offers good performance, light weight and low cost.

The Rotax 582 (illustrated) is a liquid cooled two-cylinder 64 hp two-stroke engine that provides exceptionally strong performance while remaining moderate in cost and light in weight.

The Rotax 912 is a four-cylinder 80 hp four-stroke engine that is liquid and air cooled, and which offers the ultimate flexwing performance, reliability and economy. What makes the Quantum so special is the sheer cohesion of the design. Effortless to rig, comfortable to sit in, stylish to look at and a joy to fly.
