Two Projects Recently Completed

The Aeroplane Factory recently completed the rebuild and major upgrade to Swift N80919. You can see it in flight on our Past Projects page after returning from receiving it's new paint.

You will also see on our Past Projects page a view of the completed rebuild an SF-260 wing that was badly corroded.

Swift Adel Landing Gear Struts

We have started a run of Adel landing gear struts for the Swift. The components should be machined by the mid-June 2010, then sent out to be silver brazed together. After that they will receive a layer of hard chrome and then will be ground to the correct strut dimensions.

May 2012 update: The Adel struts have been brazed and leak checked. An excellent job of brazing by G&L Silver Brazing as there were no leaks when every strut was pressure checked at 300 psi! The struts are now out for chrome and grind and should be finished by the end of June. These will be available from Swift Parts so get your order in to them now.

July 2012 update: After a delay from the chrome shop the struts are finally finished, inspected, packaged, and on their way to Swift Parts. If you have not gotten your order in with them, you should do so soon.
