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.

The return of the Lone Ranger
After a 5 year break, Jim Cunliffe is returning to the microlight world and taking up the reins of P&M Aviation again as manager from 1st February. Roger Pattrick is leaving at the end of January to concentrate on the technical work he will enjoy at the BMAA.
Jim has tried “retirement” for a bit, during which time he built a house, several vintage motorcycles and ridden a Honda 90 around darkest Africa. No doubt there are many tall tales he will be telling his grandchildren! Long experienced in the job during the most successful years for P&M so far, he will bring a renewed focus and energy to the company. He can be contacted on 07721 451104. The Organisation is staying the same, with buying, spares, trike assembly, tube manufacture, sail manufacture and repairs and the shop in Rochdale while design, prototype manufacture, sail making and composites continue at Manton, Marlborough.
Manton has an airstrip and service centre, so it is possible to fly in by arrangement for permit renewals, modifications and to fly out following repairs etc. Bill Brooks remains as technical director and is as busy as ever bringing new designs to the market. Tim Jackson has been P&M sales and marketing consultant for over a year and will be taking a more active role in the Company. He currently flies a Kermit green Quik GTR so he is easy to spot.
Happy New Year to everyone.
After many years of sterling service to P&M Aviation, Roger Pattrick - Managing Director, has decided to move on to pastures new at the end of January 2015 to take up a position in the BMAA. (British Microlight Aircraft Association). We wish him well in his new role.
