Howard Hughes Engineering PTY LTD

Company formed 1984 to design and produce the Australian Light Wing series which has developed from GR-582 via GA-55 to GR-912 and the associated Sport 2000. Most production, undertaken in a 2,000 m2 (21,525 sq ft) factory at Ballina Airport, is for local use and either full certification or registry under AUF rules; around 10 aircraft per year are built. Aircraft for export are issued with Australian certificates of airworthiness.
In 2003, the company announced the LightWing Speed, a low-wing development of the GR-912 family. In early 2003, the workforce numbered 10.
