The Australian LightWing SP2000

The Australian LightWing’s sleek body and flying surfaces have been designed with style, class and exceptional aerodynamics in mind. From the performance-enhancing body curves to our Australian LightWing tail section.

The SP Range is available in various configurations, from the lightweight RA-Aus registerable SP 2000-S (nose wheel or tail wheel) 4-seat SP4000 (nose wheel only) KIT aircraft.

Safety is the prominent feature in our airframe and aircraft design. We offer the highest quality in our components, back up, service and accessories.

The track record of our aircraft and design principles go back twenty six years and our record is near-perfect in terms of serious accidents. Sure, you could say that perhaps only conservative pilots fly Australian LightWing aircraft, but the way we design and build our aircraft definitely contributes to our record. The combination of aluminium wings and a welded steel safety frame that encloses the pilots in a protective cocoon is unmatched in the industry. In both the SP2000 and SP4000 both you and your passengers are surrounded by an ultra strong and fully welded steel safety frame, providing roll-over protection and an ultra rigid, aerodynamic platform, that is capable of loads way beyond that which you will experience in flight.
