The Shorts SC7 Skyvan is a 19 seat twin turboprop aircraft manufactured by Northern Ireland-based Short Brothers.

The all metal Skyvan has a braced, high aspect ratio wing and an unpressurised, square-section fuselage with twin fins and rudders; a distinctive look that earned it the name Flying Shoebox. The large rear door facilitates freight access.

Skyvan construction began in 1960 and the first prototype made its maiden flight on 17 January, 1963. Initially it was powered by two Continental piston engines, but subsequent prototypes were re-engined with 520 eshp Turbomeca Astazou IIs and then 666 eshp Turbomeca Astazou Xs. The production version was powered by 690 eshp Turbomeca Astazou XIIs.

In 1968, production switched to the Skyvan Series 3 that used 715 eshp Garrett AiResearch TPE331 turboprops.

Production ended in 1986.
