DISTRIBUTORS

German Distributor

by Niklas Anderberg / 25 May 2017

DynamicSpirit has been the distributor of BLACKWING Aircrafts in Germany. Due to the tragic death of Dynamic’s owner Mr. Jan Harlfinger, DynamicSpirit and Blackwing Sweden AB have now mutually agreed to part ways in order for each of the companies to focus on its respective core business. Blackwing will, with its recently granted DULV type certificate, continue its sales on the German market. All future customers and flight enthusiasts are hereby referred to contacts directly with Blackwing via email: info@blackwing.aero

GENERAL

Investment Opportunity

by Niklas Anderberg / 25 May 2017

BLACKWING Sweden AB is a privately held Swedish company that designs, produces, and distributes the award-winning two-seat BLACKWING light sports aircraft. The company was founded in 2011 by Niklas & Yngve Anderberg and is based in Eslöv, just north of Malmö, Sweden.

Praised and awarded by the aviation industry, we have invested over seven years of R&D, prior to the first public appearance on April 2015, at the AERO Friedrichshafen tradeshow. The aircraft has been developed using the most advanced development techniques available, resulting in a far safer and greater product than existing alternatives. BLACKWING was awarded the prestigious Red Dot Design Award ‘Best of the Best’ in 2016 and the German aviation community voted BLACKWING as the winner of the 2016 Flieger Award. BLACKWING has been featured on eight magazine covers and has been given superb reviews. The first two years of production have been sold out without any additional sales or marketing efforts, with down payments received for the first 10 aircraft and over 50 potential clients in Europe waiting for confirmation of delivery dates.

Market opportunity

Globally, 268.000 recreational aircraft are in use. Over 40.000 are registered as ‘microlight’, the certification class that is very accessible for both new and existing pilots, and the class initially targeted by BLACKWING. In Europe alone, there are 500 new registrations every year. 150 of these are in the premium segment, where BLACKWING targets the position of market leader. For more than 14 years, no significant innovation has been introduced in this market and many pilots are looking to upgrade to the latest and greatest. This explains part of the success of BLACKWING. We also believe that this market will more than double before the end of this year, with new weight regulations of 600 kg, that BLACKWING already is approved for.

CERTIFICATION

Certification flights BW 600RG

by Niklas Anderberg / 25 May 2017

Niklas Anderberg, proud founder of BlackWing Sweden and Micky Carlson, renowed Swedish display pilot for historic aircraft and ATPL, are exploring and opening the flight envelope of the BW600R. The BlackWing team has worked for many months towards this next milestone. Both Niklas and Micky are very thrilled with the flying characteristics which make BlackWing such a joy to fly. The maiden flight was followed with multiple flights shortly after. The retractable gear was tested in flight at different airspeeds. So far, the calculated flight numbers seem to be rather conservative, so please follow us on Facebook to see the latest performance data.

AERO

BLACKWING 600RG at AERO17

by Niklas Anderberg / 25 May 2017

The first public presentation of BlackWing with retractable gear. The all electric patented system with manual back-up and the seamless integration with our new Garmin G3X avionics package created great market response. We took the opportunity to update our interior including more luggage room. The candy red paint scheme with clearcoated TeXtreme created a lot of positive feedback. The BlackWing display was completed with a FG model in the silver color scheme with solid Jet Black underside.

    -"I decided to buy an airplane two years ago I've flown pretty much every ultralight there is. But it wasn't until I tried the BLACKWING I felt that this is an airplane that fits me. The quality and the characteristics where just right.
    Two months later I'm an airplane owner."
