Above pictured is Australian (Hughes) Lightwing, 25-0037. One of the early examples and the aircraft in which I learnt to fly. This aircraft did not perform quite as per the specifications above as those details are for a more recent version. Lightwing 25-0037 was fitted with a Rotax 532, 2 stroke, 2 cylinder engine producing 64 horsepower, it had a cruise speed of 65 knots ... a joy to fly.
