Have you ever dreamed of flying a Spitfire? If the answer is 'yes', you should take a look at the Silence Twister, manufactured by Silence Aircraft in Verl near Bielefeld, Germany.
With this aircraft, you get all the fun and good looks of the Spitfire on an ultralight budget!
The Silence Twister is an all composite construction, different in many ways by the use of honeycomb core instead of a foam core structure. This gives extra strength and a lighter weight.
Normally this aircraft comes with a retractable landing gear, but as an option it can be fitted with a fixed gear. The advantage with a fixed landing gear is a less complicated system and lighter weight.
