Manufactured in aircraft quality
aluminium and hardware, this two seater aircraft combines performance with the most enviable style and reputation.
The highest quality materials are brought together using careful design, superb craftsmanship and overall excellence in aircraft
engineering. American based Supermarine Aircraft have been manufacturing the Spitfire kitsets for the last 17 years,
and now have their products in over 8 countries worldwide. Over 5 million dollars have been spent on R & D to come
up with a product that is safe and a world leader in quality and innovation, but most of all a joy to fly.
|LS-2 V8 and Supermarine dual-belt PSRU
with the 6 cylinder Jabiru in mind, the aircraft has gone on to develop and utilise a range of automotive based V-6 and V-8
powerplants with supercharging optional, allowing for a much wider range of performance that resembles the Original in
a very cost efficient manner. Superb performance figures combined with friendly handling characteristics and not to
mention the unequalled elegance of the aircraft itself make this aircraft a continuing legacy of the Legend it is
based upon, the WWII Spitfire. The aircraft comes as a comprehensive kitset with all components prefabricated, including
the Main and Wing spars and control surfaces corrosion protected and assembled. The fuselage shell comes complete
ready for fit-out and the wings complete and disassembled for packing. Construction time starts at approx 1200
hrs and can vary significantly depending on installation options, builder experience and skill, paint, avionics, etc.
This is a very customisable aircraft that can be tailored to suit a variety of options.
