SPITFIRE AIRCRAFT

Pat English, the owner of English Engineering, has built a flying FULL-SIZE two-seater replica Spitfire. Some of the technical details of Pat’s Spitfire are:-

Two seats;

  Fitted with a 350 HP Lycoming TIO 540 engine, which is expected to give him a speed of 180 to 200 knots (208 to 230 mph); 

It is constructed from aluminium with the same dimensions and look as the original; 

The replica Spitfire is constructed totally differently from the original and uses all new components; 

Registration is the same as a normal aircraft, under the experimental class;

The cost of a completed full size replica two-seater Spitfire aircraft is expected to between AU$400,000 and AU$500,000, depending on the level of outfitting and components fitted; and

It can be flown under a private pilot's licence.

Part of the aim of Pat’s project is to get together a homebuilders kit for sale to the public. Additionally, this aircraft is NOT the same as supplied by a company in Brisbane, which sells scale model Spitfires.
