  AT THE AEROPLANE FACTORY...
We rebuild components as well as complete airframes. If you are in need of a component, centersection, wings, fuselage, stabilizer, flap, etc., contact us for assistance.

 

 

PARTS AND REPAIRS
INCLUDING CENTERSECTIONS!

We can produce almost any part needed for the repair under the owner produced parts rule (FAR 21.303 (b)(2)). We currently have fixtures for the centersection, wings, horizontal stab, and an adjustable fixture for control surfaces. This summer we will be building a fixture for the fuselage. We have special press brake dies to make the trailing edge shape on the control surfaces as well as the leading edge skin for the horizontal. Since the lack of spar caps for the centersection has kept many Swifts from being rebuilt, we are currently making upper and lower spar caps for our own projects.

 

 

 
CUSTOM BUILT SWIFTS!

If you want a Swift custom built from the ground up, contact us. We have 12 projects in various conditions that can be built to your specification.
