Aircraft Quikkit Glass Goose began to be developed by American engineers and designers in the 1980 year, while, after a number of preliminary design work, experts have come to believe that amphibious aircraft will receive a rather unusual configuration, in particular, the aircraft is amphibious biplane, Moreover, a similar project was under a good reason to give the aircraft a high popularity.
The main reason for which the aircraft Quikkit Glass Goose configured as a biplane is that at the initial stage, the developers expected it multi-purpose, in particular, the aircraft was positioned as a private civil easy single-engine aircraft, expected to be used in private purposes (transportation of people and goods) as well as a sports aircraft capable of performing aerobatic stunts. In this case, double-wing provided the aircraft higher rigidity design, the ability to withstand high positive and negative overload, and of course - high reliability at the time of flight.
Amphibian Quikkit Glass Goose has a compact design, so that has a high maneuverability, which in turn reduces fuel consumption and allows for a higher airspeed.

The cabin Quikkit Glass Goose aircraft can accommodate up to two people, or else, the aircraft is also capable of transporting an his board and about 250 kilogram payload (excluding own weight of pilot and passenger), but in this case we are talking more about the Overall transported objects. Thanks capacious enough fuel tanks, the aircraft of this model is able to smoothly overcome 950 kilometers, which is quite acceptable in view of the type of aircraft.
Power plant Quikkit Glass Goose plane located in the central part of the aircraft, and performs the role of pushing only, with, depending on the use and modification of the power plant, there can be applied from aircraft engine power to 160 180 horsepower, which in turn facilitates and high load capacity of the aircraft, and the development of a top speed of up to 270 km \ h.

Aircraft Quikkit Glass Goose American aircraft manufacturers produced solely as a kit for self-assembly, but, despite this fact, the aircraft is very popular, as evidenced continuing to the present day production.
