The Swearingen Merlin (now known as the Fairchild Aerospace Merlin) is a pressurized business aircraft, introduced in the late 1960s. The Merlin was initially produced by Swearingen Aircraft, followed by Fairchild Aircraft. The original development begun when Ed Swearingen started gradually modifying a Beechcraft Twin Bonanza and Queen Air, in order to compose a new design, designating the innovated hybrid the Excalibur. He soon started works on a new aircraft, which utilised a clean-sheet fuselage with modified horizontal tails and wet wing derived from the Queen Air, and the landing gear of the Twin Bonanza, which became the pressurized SA26 Merlin. The SA226-T Merlin III model was produced from 1972, with re-designed wings and a new landing gear, as well as uprated avionics. The Merlin III used Honeywell TPE331-3U-303G powerplants.
