|The Fall 1996 cover of Aviation Quarterly magazine showed Bryan
Quickmire flying his Challenger C-FXSL in the Thousand Islands.
The issue featured Bryan's story and photos of his initial float
season with the amphibious ultralight. He recalls the sensations of making
the first flight of the newly constructed aircraft and of learning to fly
an airplane which floats on water. Bryan recounts a wide variety of experiences
and journeys and ends the story with the anticipation of the first winter
snows and the ski flying season to come.
All in all, the article conveys the discovery of a previously unimagined
freedom of flight.
