Supermarine Aircraft has been in business for the last 20 years selling our Spitfire kits. Over the past 15 years, we have developed engines and our own, higher quality, re-drive system for better engine performance. Our Spitfires are sold and flying all over the world. There are Supermarine Spitfire reproduction kits currently flying in the USA, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Germany, South Africa and Canada.
Throughout the last 20 years, millions of dollars have been spent on research and development to come up with a product that is safe and is a world leader in quality and innovation, but most of all, a joy to fly.

Michael (Mike) O’Sullivan’s Supermarine Aircraft Factory officially began its life in the kit aircraft manufacturing business in 1992, although the original idea is much older. The Mk26 and Mk26b are now well proven designs with all aluminum components pre-drilled and precision cut using a computer controlled CNC router cutter. This keeps parts standards consistent and accurate, a far cry from the original Spitfires construction methods. The main structural sections of the aircraft are pre-built in factory jigs thus ensuring the highest possible accuracy of these critical components. The method of construction is aimed at the average person who is good with their hands.
