Development Quickie Q2 light aircraft began in the year 1978, in this case, a group of talented designers and engineers chose a very unusual shape for the future of the aircraft, in particular as regards the location of the wings, landing gear design and others.

One of the main features of the Quickie Q2 is a low and wide chassis that simultaneously functions as an aircraft's wings, which in turn reduces the cost of aircraft production, and also allows the design of the aircraft to be as compact as possible (height), which also reduced drag Flight, increased speed and reduced fuel consumption. The dimensions of the Quickie Q2 are also very small - the length of the aircraft is only 6 meters and 5 centimeters, and the wingspan is 5 meters and 8 centimeters, which greatly increases the maneuverability of this aircraft.

His first flight of the aircraft model Quickie Q2 performed in 1980, after which entered series production, which was produced as a kit for self-assembly, in this case, thanks to the unification of parts and components, the time to create a ready to model proved to be very small, which respectively, found great support among the owners - for the entire period of production was built more than two thousand aircraft.

In the cockpit of the aircraft Quickie Q2 two people can be accommodated, while, due to the absence here of sufficient free space, the plane did not actually suitable for use as a vehicle, however, thanks to the paired control plane can be used as the training aircraft.

Powerplant Quickie Q2 aircraft consists of a piston aircraft engine, which, depending on the modification may develop power from the 64 hp to 105 hp, respectively, allows the aircraft to reach speeds in 322 km \ h., and easily overcome the distance to 855 kilometers.
