Many people around the world have a passion for aircraft design.
At SW-AIR, we are no different.
What sets us apart is our goal: Affordability for the average
Government bureaucracy has created a few very profitable companies,
united in freezing General Aviation from moving out of their
control and profit.
New advances in aircraft construction
materials and methods allow manufacturere to make an aircraft
for a fraction of the cost they charge. Profit margins in the
100's of percentile ensure that only very wealthy people can
personally own an aircraft.
An engine for the average automobile costs only hundreds to
produce. They are fully computer controlled, start and run flawlessly
at any altitude in almost any weather. They are very efficient,
powerful, and reliable with long life spans. General aviation
engines, on the other hand, have not changed in 40 years. They
cost upwards of $20,000, tempermental to start, and require
the pilot to babysit the fuel/air mixture just to keep it running
without damage. Adding just a simple computer module to a GA
engine runs upwards of $10,000. The same basic system on a cheap
import car costs under $200, and usually is so reliable and
foolproof it lasts the life of the car.
