The remarkable new twin-engined utility Aircraft, "The Speedtwin" making its maiden Irish flight demonstration at Shannon Airport today. The creator of the aircraft Malcom Ducker has stated his interest in manufacturing the aircraft at Shannon.
With its twin-engined and tandem seating configuration, The Speedtwin offers impressive operating capabilities. The Speedtwin has been flight-tested and issued with a UK Civil Aviation Authority Permit. All official test flying programmes were completed in April 2011 resulting in the Speedtwin being the world's only civil twin-engined aircraft cleared for intentional spinning. In July 2012 the Speedtwin participated in the daily aerobatic flying display at the Farnborough International Air Show.
With applications such as border patrol, search and rescue, pipeline and wire inspection, police patrols and other utility services, The Speedtwin offers high performance and twin-engined safety at a very competitive cost. Its remarkable landing and take-off envelope of 100 meters in any reasonably flat terrain, makes The Speedtwin uniquely suitable for remote applications also.
