Aviat Aircraft Inc. is an American manufacturer of sport and utility aircraft based in Afton, Wyoming.[1] The company president and owner is Stuart Horn; he acquired the company in 1996.

In 1999, Aviat purchased the rights to the Globe Swift with the intent on bringing the example back into production. A lawsuit between LoPresti's use of the design for the LoPresti Fury delayed entry of both aircraft from the market.[2]
