Quickflight's musical style on their first album, Breakaway, was similar to keyboard-oriented, electronic, arena rock bands of the 80s mixed with new wave and was released on Tunesmith Records in 1980.
Their second album, Decent Beat, was recorded at Little Mountain Sound Studios in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and was released by Star Song Records in 1983. It was ground-breaking because it was one of the first Christian Contemporary releases in which the instruments used consisted almost entirely of synthesizers and sequencers in a style influenced by British synthesizer bands, particularly After the Fire. The album was also one of the first Christian Contemporary Music albums that was digitally mastered although it was never released on CD.
Quickflight toured through the Mid-West and West Coast of the U.S. and parts of Canada, at several outdoor festivals, playing with a variety of Christian artists who included Steve Taylor, Rez Band, Kerry Livgren, Sheila Walsh, Undercover and Larry Norman.
Through recording at Little Mountain, Ric deGroot met the members of the Capitol Recording group Strange Advance and joined them in 1984.
