Description: The Wicca is an ultralight swoop. One hand must remain on the handle at all times, ruling out any two-handed activity when one is flying it. The Wicca also features a small aft cargo hatch capable of housing 10 kg of cargo. It can carry one sentient up to 200 kg in mass, thanks to its retractable seat capable of accommodating many sentient species ranging from the Jawas, Ewoks to the Wookiees or Muuns.  As-Aki could actually use it as a bus, with the aft cargo hatch capable of housing ten As-Aki. In order to save weight, duraplast is used in most components of the chassis and, unfortunately, design decisions resulted into a somewhat underpowered engine being used in it as well, reducing the minimum speed to about one-half the speed of a full-sized swoop, and also eschewing mounting of weapons. It can be flown for about six or seven hours before needing to refuel, up to an above-ground altitude of roughly 2 km.
