Everything to know about Buckingham Swift – Visual, performance, and more


Buckingham Swift is a luxury helicopter that was featured in GTA Online with the release of the San Andreas Flight School Update in 2014. Like its previous iteration, the aircraft is heavily inspired by its real-life counterpart AgustaWestland AW109S Grand for most of its design choices.

Its visual appearance seems to be a bit different from the rest of the helicopters in the game, thanks to re-elaborated design details. Here are some of the characteristics that make it stand out from the rest:

  • Long fuselage
  • Marvel aerodynamics
  • Angular nose
  • Relatively large cockpit
  • Access doors for the co-pilot and pilot
  • Rectangular landing gear
  • Functional taxi lamps on the side extensions
  • Sliding animation for the bay doors
  • Additional seats to carry more passengers
  • Open bay with ample space
  • Tall engine compartment
  • The four-bladed main rotor in the compartment
  • Side extensions with dual exhausts
  • Slightly angled tail-boom
  • Small fins on the horizontal stabilizers
  • Strike guard on the lower stabilizer
  • The small flight instrument panel with flyer dials
  • Corresponding control sticks

The aircraft comes in two different versions throughout the game:

  • Classic – This version of the aircraft comes in a black primary color and a grey secondary color.
  • Flying Bravo – This version of the aircraft spawns in a red/green livery with the brand’s markings; in a white primary color.

When it comes to performance, Swift runs on a twin-turboshaft engine, making it one of the fastest and most maneuverable helicopters in GTA Online to date. It can reach a top speed of 150 knots in just a few seconds thanks to its superb acceleration. It’s also very responsive in the air, allowing players to quickly correct their flight path whenever needed.

Play GTA Online any time this week and get a pair of in-game shirts adorned with iconic symbols of Grand Theft Auto's 25-year history — the Wasted! Tee and Rampage Tee:

Swift is recommended as a transport aircraft, and players can make their hustle easy and luxurious while flying it in Los Santos.
