Aircraft Company was started in 1978 in Mojave. As you can see in the
design, it was a Burt Rutan company. There were three models available
in a kit form that the buyer had to put together themselves. In most
cases that I have seen, it takes considerable time to put one of these
together. About 2,000 total Quickies were made, it is unknown how many
kits were completely assembled or flown.
Robert LaRue built this Q-200 (N90RL) in about 1985. It was quite
something to see on final approach. The common phrase on the ramp at
the time was "What the...?". Coupled with the marine layer that
diffused visual clarity, it really looked odd.
