Are they mandatory? How often ? Who does them? How much can I expect to pay?

Depends on where you live and whose rules you fly under, frequency is in the pilot manual on the P&M website, P&M or competent persons, P&M cost roughly £500.

Ian & Denise at Pennine Flexwing services Can do your wing strip. Ex P & M (Rochdale) they know what they are doing and will be much cheaper.

I do believe itís every 4 years for a standard Quik wing.....if Iím wrong I hope someone corrects me.

Depends who you ask... It does use the word 'mandatory' in the POH, but the P&M advice was that it is 'recommended'. Love to see how that plays in the courts...

I was told at my last permit that is 3 years for a GT450? and that mine only just squeaked in!
But if P&M say its recommended not compulsory like the side wires then who is right?

Mandatory wing strip is 3 years or 300 hrs for a permit Quantum Q2


The Quik / GT450 / Quik R & GTR Mandatory wing strip is 4 Years or 500hrs which ever comes first!


You can do the wing strip yourself if competent, but would recommend Ian & Denise at Peninne flexwing services. Tel Ian 07903 413901 or Denise Tel: 07970 752356

+1 on this they are really good to deal with and very trust worthy , my mate had his side wires done as well as a service and one of the new wires was faulty after being fitted (one strand had snapped), ian flew to our airfield in his flexwing and fitted the replacemnt instead of my mate having to de rig and transport the wing to them .. absolute old school brilliant service ................
