The Quicksilver GT-500 development program was started with the goal of producing the best performing Quicksilver ever. Quicksilver?s aim was to design an aircraft that would change the category of ultralight & provide general aviation with the entry level aircraft it desperately needed. The focus was on more speed, better aerodynamics, and a greater range.
