QUICKIE SEMINAR..... On Saturday, November 25, 1978 a joint Quickie/VariEze seminar and flight demonstration was held at the Mojave, California airport.
.....Over 500 people watched flight demonstrations by the Quickie, VariEze, VariViggen, and Defiant. Later, about 300 people attended the five hour seminar which featured information on building and inspecting Quickies and VariEzes.
.....We were very pleased with the turnout, and received many favorable comments from Quickie builders that attended,that the seminar really helped them to understand the methods used in building and inspecting a composite aircraft like the Quickie.
.....As a result of the Mojave seminar, we are planning to do a few more during 1979.
QUICKIE ON COVER OF MECHANIX ILLUSTRATED.....The January, 1979 issue of Mechanix Illustrated has a rather familiar object on the cover â a Quickie.
.....Inside you will find a pilot report by Wayne Thoms, their west coast editor. In addition, there are some beautiful color detail shots of N77Q
1979 QUICKIE TOUR OF U.S.
.....We are tentively planning on taking the Quickie
around the country in April or May to conduct a series of seminars and flight
demonstrations. It is surprising how many people still do not believe what
an 18 h.p. Quickie will do, so we want to show them again. We will try to coordinate
with local EAA chapters and local Quickie builders to let everyone know, as
well as announcing it in our April Newsletter. If someone in your area would
be interested in sponsoring such an affair, please have them contact us.
