The first aircraft to bear the name “Swallow” was a three-seat biplane that led the way towards practical commercial aviation. The design was a success with many companies created near copies of the practical Swallow.
The Swallow TP was designed to be a simple and rugged twoseated aircraft with no unnecesary features or niceties. The TP was designed for efficient and economical pilot training and was also well suited to the role of a low cost sport plane.
Because the Swallow was designed for training, the construction was much more rugged and beefed-up than was typical for the day. The cockpit was simplified, and only basic instruments were installed.
Yanks acquired in 2000.
