The Slingsby T67 Firefly is a light single-engine two-seat trainer aircraft produced by the British manufacturer Slingsby Aviation.
The Slingsby T67 Firefly is a development of the Fournier RF6B which was later developed into the four-seat Sportavia-Pützer RS-180 Sportsman. The T67 Firefly features a construction of composite materials instead of the all-wooden construction of its forerunner Fournier RF6.
