Marganski Swift S1 Aerobatic Glider


The Swift S1 is an aerobatic glider by the Polish designers Makula and Marganski. As the successor of the successful Kobuz the Swift S1 was by far better than other designs at it’s first use during the World Cup 1991. To date the Swift S1 is still seen as the level in aerobatic glider design. It’s large ailerons, reaching over 2/3 of the wingspan, give the Swift S1 a tremendous maneuverability (a roll takes 4 seconds). Due to limited production capacity, the production of the Swift S1 has been stopped in 1993 after just 30 units.
