Europa Prototype

The Europa Aircraft Company was formed at Kirkbymoorside, Yorkshire, in 1991 by Ivan Shaw, to develop and market the Europa light aircraft he had designed the previous year. Of advanced kit-built design, the Europa can be easily transported and rigged and has excellent cruising and short-field performance for two people. The first customer-built Europa flew in October 1995 and to-date over 700 aircraft are flying in 33 countries.

The Europa at the Museum is the re-furbished prototype and development aircraft, which first flew in February 1992.
