SkyRanger Swift II

The SkyRanger Swift II is a development from the best selling SkyRanger. Featuring a smaller wing, the Swift II benefits from higher cruise speeds and a more comfortable ride in turbulence thanks to the increased wing loading. With a combination of shorter wingspan, and greater torsional strength, the smaller ailerons result in reduced roll loads and increased roll rate, especially noticeable at high cruise speeds over 100mph.

Takeoff performance is still in the STOL category, and with the 100 hp 912ULS a max weight takeoff roll on grass is less than 65metres, and a spirited 1200fpm climb, rate rising to over 1500fpm solo. Stalling speed remains a comfortably low 33.5Knots at 450Kg loading, meaning short field landings are still a breeze. Powerful control response right down to stall speed, makes for easy control, and superb crosswind capability. Click on the link below to read more about this fantastic aircraft!

A Plane is Born

We really should have published this a few months ago when our Nynja flew for the first time, but to be honest, we’ve been having too much fun flying it! The aircraft took to the air for the first time at the beginning of April and flew very well. We had two minor issues to […]

Doors and Check Flight Preparation

Every homebuilt aircraft is slightly different so the doors have to be individually made for each aircraft. Taking time to build and fit the doors properly ensures drafts are kept out and a comfortable ride for pilot and passenger in the future! There are two door options for the Nynja, the one-piece door that folds […]

Windscreen and Panel

As we approach the final stages of the build we can start to put the final finishing touches to the aircraft. The Lexan for windscreen comes tinted as standard and is supplied in large sheets which have a template for the various sections marked on them. Homebuilt aircraft by their very nature are all a […]

Spats and Decals

Work continues at a fast pace and it looks like we’re on the home stretch! The last parts of the engine to complete were the throttle linkages and some of the electrical connections. The SkyRanger is fitted with dual throttles outboard of each side of the cabin. They are joined together with a torque tube […]
