HistoryEdit

The Flyte was introduced in 1996 as a step-entrance counterpart to the Spryte. It was essentially a development of the Opus 2 design which had appeared earlier the same year. The Flyte had a new front end design based on the Spryte (though two Volvo B10Ms for Delaine Buses had the Opus 2 front end).

A large proportion of the Flyte's orders were for the rebodying of older chassis. In the severely dwindling market for step-entrance rebodies, the Flyte was superseded by the Hyline around 2000-2001.
