Swift Aircraft is a British aerospace manufacturer that designs the Swift II aerobatic training aircraft.

Swift II[edit]

The Swift II is a side-by-side, twin-seat training and aerobatic aircraft, and is currently in the final stages of design. Swift Aircraft plan to market the Swift II for the military and civilian markets when it becomes available. The aircraft will be of all composite construction to save weight and improve performance. The company expects to commence tooling for construction of the Swift II by the end of 2011 and will initially offer the Swift II as a kit, before bringing the design up to certified standard. The Swift range is planned to include:

  • Swift II (Certified CS-23)
  • Swift VLA (Certified CS-VLA)
  • Swift VLA (kit plane)

Other Activities[edit]

The company also sells and leases the Slingsby Firefly, having purchased 21 examples from Babcock Defense Services in June 2011.
