The Short SC.7 Skyvan is a 19-seater twin turboprop aircraft manufactured by Short Brothers of Belfast, Northern Ireland. It is used mainly for short-haul freight and skydiving.
The Skyvan is a high wing twin-engined all-metal monoplane with a high semi-cantilever tailplane with twin rudders.
The first flight of the Skyvan, the Skyvan 1, was on 17 January 1963.
It is affectionately called "the shed" by pilots and crew.
The Short 330 and Short 360 are stretched models of the original SC-7 which were designed as regional airliners.
In the Austrian AirForce the Skyvan served from 1969 until 2007 in use as "maiden for everything".
