The Skyranger Swift is the Chief Flying Instructors favourite aircraft! Its microlight design heritage is more obvious than the Eurostar or C42. It is in fact a kit built aircraft and G-GRLS was constructed over an 18 month period as a ‘build a plane project’ by girls at Beneden School in Kent - hence the registration!
The Ikarus C42 is a high wing, two seat, side by side tri gear aircraft. The airframe is of aircraft-grade aluminium with a composite cabin and fuselage shell. This innovative, modern, two seat aeroplane is made by Comco-Ikarus in Germany.
