Swearingen SA-32T

 

 Swear-SA32-01


The prototype (N6Y) of this compact trainer design made its first flight at San Antonio, Texas, on 31 May 1989. Powered by a 420 shp (313 kW) Allison 250-B17D turbo-prop, the SA-32T has been developed by Swearingen in conjunction with Jaffe Aircraft Corp. Despite its relatively small size, the SA-32T incorporates a retractable undercarriage, a limited amount of composite material in the airframe and a NASA-designed laminar-flow wing.
Jaffe Aircraft abandoned the program.

 

N6Y is still flying. Purchased from Jaffe in 2002. My wingtip design lower the full-flaps stall to 68 kts. Trues out a 280 kts. William B Acheff, April 2020
