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.
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.
