Hughes Engineering Products & Services

Hughes Engineering has been proudly designing and manufacturing light sport aircraft since 1986.

Our history began in architecture (70's), boat building/fish trawling (80's), then on to Aviation & Aircraft Design (80's), paragliding & powered paragliding (90's) and arcing into the wonderful realms of solar powered vehicles (00's), flight simulators (90's), telephone & computer software (00's) and 1, 2, 4 and 6 seat aircraft design.

Always with a strong focus on diversifying and strengthening the Australian aviation community and extending the joy of aviation and design to the next generation through education opportunities at high schools and at university level. With this incredible history supporting us, we have the know-how to trouble shoot your projects, manufacture your ideas or provide you with an Australian Workhorse of the sky - The Australian LightWing Light Sport Aircraft.

We are a family run and operated Aviation and General Engineering business, with our strongest focus on customer service, advise and support. You can call or email us directly and discuss your needs or project and we will endeavour to get it underway at the next possible opportunity.

Currently, We are also over stocked! We have incredible Australian LightWing SP2000 aircraft on the factory showroom which need new owners so we have the floor space for our next projects! THESE AIRCRAFT COULD BE YOURS!

The Cunning Cat Catamaran

The Cunning Cat Catamaran

We’ve been extremely busy this month spending some time and energy on the our Cunning Cat Catamaran. The Cat has been moored in the Richmond River, here in Ballina, for a short while, and it was high time to slip her at The Ballina Slipway in West Ballina, and step the mast.

It goes without saying that Hughes Engineering has an incredible range of capabilities. From aircraft and aviation manufacture and design to boat building; from electric cars to computer software, we have packed a lot in to thirty years in the engineering and aviation industry, fuelled by our passion to create high quality products and innovative creations.

As an Engineering Company we are approached daily to undertake many small and large projects. And if we don’t feel we are the right people for the job, we’ll be sure to send you in the direction of the right place.

We know what we can do, and we know everyone in the neighbourhood as well. We’ve always been extremely community minded – we’re a small business – we didn’t do this alone!
