A walk down Memory Lane


Through the joys of social media we are so very delighted that we can connect with Australian LightWing owners and flying enthusiasts, from the past, at the present and, hopefully, in the future. Through sharing photos, flying adventure stories, youtube movies and more, the community of Australian LightWing owners only grows stronger all the time.

We at Australian LightWing would just like to say a big thank you for staying in contact, visiting the factory, attending fly-ins and staying passionate about light sport aircraft flying, safety, and aviation in Australia. It’s a beautiful country we live in and the best way to see it is to get out there and experience all that is has to offer.

Head on over to our Facebook page to stay up to date with the SP Range, the Road-e Electric Vehicle and the SP6000 six seat project underway in the factory.

Take a stroll down memory lane with some of these happy snaps from owners around Australia.

Passionate about Poetry


We’re a passionate bunch here at Hughes Engineering.

Check out some of his poems on our Australian LightWing Youtube channel here.

Here’s one from the Great Australian Bushwackers Songbook, “The Shearer’s Nightmare”.

The Metal Work Engine

Pictured: Howie Hughes, CEO of Australian LightWing, visiting the Metal Work engine factory recently in Italy!!!

With horse power ranging from 80hp to 130hp, the ‘Metal Work’ gear drive engines promise a substantial technological improvement over the current range of Rotax engines.

In particular, the soon to be released: 130 hp engine with a capacity in excess of 2 litres.

Watch this space as more details are available after we visit the Italian factory in late march 2011.

With an equivalent weight to the Rotax, but sporting additional 30 horse power, and also a similar size package the Metal Work engine promises to be a great improvement.

Call or email us for price or availability NOW!
