of the partners in the project, Kelly,. recently flew the aircraft
hack to Camarillo, which is where it will be permanently based. Kelly sent
a letter the next week describing the flight from Mojave. We think
that it is appropriate to share it with you:
passes over the field at 80 mph. IAS, 3500 rpmâaltitude gain was 900 feet
AGL; maintained 85 IAS from Mojave to Fox Field at 3500 rpm (hands-off
the way) ââ altitude gain to 6500 feet MSL; increased speed to 105 IAS, 3200
rpm through Saugus Pass maintaining 6500 feet MSL; 7 miles North of
Van Nuys Airport, descended to 3000 MSL and roughly followed the Ventura
Camarillo Airport â rpm 3400. CHT 250-275 deg F. oil pressure good, oil Temp
150 deg F. CHT Temperature wanted to go below 150 deg F so occasionally
I added some Power temporarily: normal pattern at Camarillo till final,
20 feet AGL leveling out with 60 IAS at beginning of 6000 foot threshold,
held 1200 rpm and 60 lAS 12â aboxe
deck until the numbers were under me, cut throttle, roll out 500 feet
against 15 knot headwind. I smile a lot these days."
.....Thank you Kelly.

Al Landry from Ohio has built this Quickie.
George Jacoban's Quickie, s/n 172, has made several flights.
Look closely and you
will see the vortex generators on the canard of N77Q. They just slowed the
aircraft down. Next to the fuselage is a 4 gallon auxiliary fuel
tank which fits in the baggage compartment and gives 77Q a 14 hour range
at economy cruise, and over 850 miles at normal cruise.
DELIVERIES AND BACKLOGS
Deliveries are currently running about 4 weeks from receipt of orders. Quickie Dealers in general will have kits in stock,
|so a check with one of them could save you a wait.
.....Because of the expanded advertiing along with the formation of our Dealership network, we expect the fall to be extremely busy. It will take several months to increase our production rate beyond 5 per week. Therefore, it might be wise for those of you contemplating purchasing a Quickie to act in the near future.
customers could assist us in smoothly filling backorders if they would
inventory their kit immediately upon receipt and notify QAC in writing of all
there, including the ones indicated as backorders. In this way, we will
have a complete record from the beginning. We normally wait 45 days from shipment
of the basic kit prior to sending the remaining backorders, to give each
an opportunity to verify the packing lists.
.....By mid-July, we expect to have Unidirectional cloth back in stock, as well as all backorders filled through serial number 360.
