Quickie Aircraft Corporation
"Free Enterprise"

Designed to be flown around the world non-stop, non-refueled

In the early 1980s, Quickie Aircraft Corporation, in Mojave, CA, built this airplane as an entrant in the race to fly around the world non-stop, non-refueled--a goal finally achieved by Dick Rutan and Jeanna Yeager in Burt Rutan's Voyager.
