What RKAT customers are saying

                                  

I chose Microlight flying, and more specifically Flexwing flying, for its affordability, ease of use, flexibility and joy against other types of flying and aircraft.

I choose RKAT for the same four reasons.

Dealing with Robin is a pleasure, happy to host at the RKAT HQ, or make the journey by road to me, he understands that flyers need to work and so makes himself available on the weekends, With his P&M background, he has an almost unrivalled knowledge of Flexwing manufacture and so knows what is right, and critically for Permit to Fly inspections, what is wrong. I have been using Robin’s services for 7 years, being my first choice for inspections and maintenance work due to the friendly, yet professional service provided and advice offered.

Over the last year even during the pandemic Robin provided me with exemplary service. I initially had real problems getting my 2-stoke SSDR to start but Robin had the problem quickly diagnosed and had me flying again. This was repeated when my a/c developed a fuel delivery problem more recently. Robin is quite clearly a very skilled engineer and as a pilot he well understands his clients' needs. He seems equally at home whether its a 4 or 2 stroke or whether flex or fixed wing, he has helped me with both. Always professional, punctual and diligent. Highly recommended if like me you need the reassurance of an expert.

I have been extremely impressed with RKATs work. After having an engine failure in flight I dropped the aircraft to the hangar and an inspection agreement was agreed. Once the cause of the fault was diagnosed parts were sourced for a very reasonable price and fitted. The engine was given a thorough check and set up including adjustment of the prop pitch and fitting of new temperature gauges for CHT and EGT’s. Once the work was complete Robin very kindly stored the aircraft until the weather was calm enough for me to come and fly back home. I can’t fault his work, all communications were regular and detailed explaining what he was going to do before it happened, and recommending any extra snags that should be addressed along the way for very reasonable costs.

I will most certainly be returning for all my future Rotax engine work, as well as airframe inspections.

"I have been using Robin for a few years now and his service and knowledge of microlights is second to none.  All this with an lot of extra information and always with a smile.  He is the best go-to person for a full end-to-end one-stop shop for all microlights."

RKAT has provided me with the comfort of knowing my flexwing microlight can be maintained and enhanced through careful maintenance schedules.  Robin Kraike is a seasoned professional who knows my model of aircraft like no-one else.  Delighted with the work he has done which included adjustments to batten profiles, flying speeds and pitch modifications, Rotax 912S maintenance, electrical improvements to ignition, examination of all critical airframe parts, test flights.....  I'd recommend RKAT for a personal and professional service for microlight owners.

Thank you Robin for all your hard work on my Quasar for its annual inspection and check flight. You knew the aircraft as you did a lot of modifications at P&M.

You also tuned the wing which had a fault you found while doing the check flight.  I was very pleased with the work and prices and well worth the miles I travelled for your expertise.

See you next year.  Many thanks

I have known Robin for over 20 years and his knowledge of microlights and the whole industry is extensive.  He has looked after ‘Kermit G-CIHL’ since its birth 2014 and my various other trikes which have included a Pegasus XL, Q, Quantum and GT450.  He is always thorough when your aircraft is in his care and the job is always done with a smile.  I thoroughly recommend RKAT and the services his company has to offer.

I’ve used RKAT services on 3 occasions in the last 18months. Robin is very knowledgeable and readily answers my endless questions and gives an excellent debrief on work he’s undertaken. I have complete peace of mind that my aircraft is sound and safe and performing as it should since using RKAT. Robin always goes beyond expectations too, proving excellent value for money.

I have known Robin for several years and he has always been most generous with his advice, and skilful in sorting out various problems which have,  from time to time arisen on my Quik.   Since forming his own company, he recently visited the airfield where my Quik is based and diagnosed a number of issues, both electrical and instrumental failure, carb service and fitted a new starter motor.     Robin's extensive  experience and background are such that I continue to have complete confidence in his work and will not hesitate to call upon his services in the future.   Oh yes, he is a jolly nice chap as well!
