The Swift S-1 is a single seat aerobatic glider manufactured by polish company Swift Ltd.Edward Margański and Jerzy Makula developed the Swift at Bielsko-Biała from the SZD-21-2b Kobuz 3.The prototype first flew in 1991. The glider is made of glass-fibre epoxy composite. It is very strong (stressed for plus and minus 10g) and maneuverable(a roll takes 4 seconds). Larger tips are available to increase the span to 15m. It has a retractable undercarriage.The SWIFT S-1 is the successor to the Kobuz 3, and is the most successful acro sailplane to date.  She proved her worth wiht the World Areobatic title in 1991and led to her being the most successful type at the 1993 Venlo World Championships.  We have successfully met the goals of the original in model dimensions. The striking lines and breathtaking aerobatic performance are shared by both the model and the full-sized machine.  Our use of the HQairfoil and the optional, plug-in wing extensions, also permits the performance potential in thermic flight to be demonstrated. With more compact measurements, the smaller model loses only in size against the larger.  Both models are constructed in full fiberglass(FG) with all control surfaces gap-freemounted and ready for hook-up.  Wing flaps are available as an option. Kit Information:Full FG construction - Gapless controll surfaces - Factory installed double-leaf spoilers and linkages - FG canopy frame- Round steel wing joiner with the fuselage opening precisely pre-drilled.
