Title: Short SC7 Skyvan

The Short Skyvan first flew in 1963 and was partly based on high aspect ratio wing research conducted by the Miles company. Initially powered by piston engines, it was quickly converted to Aztazou turboprops, and latter Garrett turboprop engines. It found a niche with skydiving operators, short-haul freight and the military, and 153 had been built when production ended in 1986. It formed the basis for the later SD330 and SD360 aircraft.
