Innovative Wings Inc – Building Aircraft Dreams Since 1999!

Full Build

Supermarine Spitfire

The 90% Supermarine Spitfire Project rolled off the Innovative Wings Inc. production line in August 2011. With extensive modification required to the standard kit, this was one of our most challenging yet enjoyable builds to date. Having seen the owner’s reaction to his new aircraft, this little beauty was worth every late night and extra hour!

Background

Kit 69 came to Innovative Wings after the kit’s complexity stopped an attempt at home completion by its owner and his build buddy. Once here, it was easy to see why. With our skilled employees, work was able to continue on this challenging project.

The Build

From simple modifcations such as making the fuel tank fit and refitting body panels, to more complex updates such as the custom Spitfire blade style control stick, there were many a day of head scratching. Almost 2 years after the project came into the shop, it now has 3 hours on the engine and is awaiting the first high speed taxi tests and flight testing. A very pleased owner is extremely excited to get it into the air.
