National Ultralight Inc.
National Ultralight Inc was founded in 1983 and since 1984 the company has been the exclusive distributor of the Challenger line of aircraft in Canada. Headquarters are at Edenvale Aerodrome, an hour north of Toronto, Ontario.
The versatility of the Challenger line of aircraft is legendary:
wheels, skis, floats, soaring.
Local and transcontinental flights.
Four seasons a year of use!
Challengers have vastly lower acquisition and operating costs
than aircraft offering only a fraction of the capabilities.
The fuel economy is unbeatable!
National Ultralight is the world's leading Challenger distributor having sold over 600 Challengers. The company is leveraging its expertise in sales and support by expanding beyond Canada to the United States and worldwide.
National Ultralight's two main suppliers are Quad City Aircraft Corp which manufactures the airframes and Bombardier-Rotax which makes the engines.
Quad City Aircraft Corp has manufactured over 4,000 Challengers in Moline, Illinois since 1983. It is ultralight aviation's longest running company!
Canadian owned Bombardier-Rotax has made over seven million engines since 1920. They outsell all other manufacturers combined in light aircraft!
National Ultralight is wholly owned by Bryan Quickmire. Bryan is a member of the Challenger Advisory Council formed by Quad City Aircraft Corp. The Council's mandate is to guide development of the Challenger line of aircraft.
Bryan earned his wings in the Royal Canadian Air Cadets in
