2014 has taken off like a rocket here at the Australian LightWing Factory.

Today in the Australian LightWing factory we are focusing on the wings, fuselage and power plant for the new aircraft currently under construction for our excited return customer in Central Queensland, inland from Longreach.

The new aircraft is a combination of technologies developed here at Australian LightWing. It will feature the strong and light weight fabric fuselage of our original aircraft design principals – the ALW GR and ALW Sport models, combined with the more spacious fuselage (and therefore cockpit) of the newer models- the complete ALW SP Range. This new aircraft design features a high wing, large baggage area, the Rotax 912 100hp engine and is a tail dragger, which is all focused on combating the harsh, unforgiving and beautiful Australian outback.

This aircraft was to be called the Tapis – but the original Tapis design has a nose wheel! So we are currently workshopping the name of the new aircraft- Do you have any ideas or suggestions you feel we should consider?!?! We’re brainstorming ideas that hope to define the fusion of our tried and true design principals of the ultra light fabric body, with the strength and power of the new airframe and power plant. We appreciate and look forward to your ideas! Please share them either in the comments below, via email (fly@lightwing.com.au), or with us and our aviation community on the Australian LightWing Facebook page.

The fuel tanks are currently being pressure tested and fitted to the wing main spar, whilst the rear spar is also being prepared. The Fuselage is being fitted out with the ALW foot pedals, wood paneling and upholstery. The power plant is also being prepped for attachment for to the firewall. You can take a closer look at the progress on a factory walk thru video (“Australian LightWing: New Fuselage” Monday 20th January 2014) at our Youtube channel and also on the Australian LightWing Instagram page, which hopes to provide some beautiful shots of the extreme attention to detail we take with our aircraft design and manufacture. We’re proud of our aircraft, and we want to show and share it with you!
