P&M Aviation was formed in 2003 following the merger of Mainair Sports and Pegasus Aviation; two small UK microlight manufacturers during the late 1990's. Since those early days, P&M is now recognised as one of the leading light aviation companies in the world producing an exciting range of flexwing aircraft that meet or exceed the exacting requirements of the British Civil Aviation Authority. The toughest certification standard in the world today. During this time P&M aircraft have collected many design awards as well as achieving numerous world records. These include World Champions, European Champions, First around the world, First solo to Australia and South Africa, as well as the first flexwing aircraft to fly over Mount Everest. Drawing on the expertise and knowledge gained in over a quarter of a century of microlight aviation design, P&M is at the cutting edge of design using the latest technology to offer the ultimate flying experience.
Two great articles have been published in Australia by Peter McLean who runs Yarrawonga Flight Training, Victoria about why he likes P&M trikes.

As a result of a detailed strategic review of the business, the directors of P&M have decided to consolidate all operations to the company’s Manton site near Marlborough, Wiltshire. Sadly, this means that the P&M Rochdale operation will be closing down within the next 6 weeks.
This difficult decision was reached with the intention of securing the business for the future, and allowing the company to plan for expansion and improve the service to its existing customers and dealer networks around the world.
The directors believe the company has potential for considerable growth, and investment is already taking place in order to enable the company to meet its business aims and continue to facilitate the design of exciting new world-beating aircraft types.
The directors of P&M would like to stress that the business remains sound and this change safeguards the long term future of the company. It is very much business as usual, building their current range of aircraft, providing spares and servicing as well as the development of leading edge new aircraft.
All staff are working to ensure that the transition is as seamless as possible with the minimum of disruption. All e-mail addresses will remain unchanged and the Rochdale phone numbers will be diverted to Manton.
We are proud to announce that the GB microlight team has been awarded the Royal Aero Club ‘Britannia Trophy’ for winning their class using our QuikR trikes at the recent World Air Games in Dubai. The Trophy will be presented by Prince Andrew at the RAF Club, Piccadilly, London on the 18th May.
The Britannia Trophy was originally presented in 1913 by Horatio Barber, for the British aviator or aviators accomplishing the most meritorious performance in aviation during the preceding year.
Team GB dominated the World Air Games microlight competition in Dubai, with a clean sweep of the medals. The FAI World Air Games which took place In Dubai 1st – 12th December 2015 used P&M Aviation QuikR flexwing aircraft. David Broom was crowned World Champion, with Paul Dewhurst taking silver, Rees Keene bronze and Mark Fowler fourth place.
In fact the first nine places were all taken by P&M QuikR's.
A great achievement.
