I think you are,

Ion Thruster or Ion propulsion device

Reasons:

Quest - "ion". Ion was a clue
Ion propulsion engines are used in spacecrafts (Skywards)

Partial answer:

Are you

The Snitch from Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire?

Chase me and my feet are not slow

In the book/film, the goal of the game is to catch The Snitch but it moves very fast.

Catch me then skywards I go

If the Snitch is caught, then you go skywards to victory.

Title:

Quest for the Snitch ;)

Hint #1:

The 3 people are Harry, Hermione, and Ron.

Hint #2:

The and Snitch are 2 words.

Hint #3:

Wings are v shaped, made of gold which is a rock, flies over bridges during the game, bow symbolises the arch in Hogwarts school.

Cannot understand the last hint, but I'll guess that sales of the Harry Potter series peaked in 2007.

Note: OP has clarified that this answer is wrong, but I will leave this answer here for inspiration for future answers. In the meantime, I will try to solve the puzzle myself.
