Available at Jandakot Airport. One in fleet.
The Sling was designed with the aim of creating the most practical and desirable light sport aircraft available.
The Sling’s flying characteristics make for a perfectly coordinated, highly responsive control setup. This gives her the distinct qualities of a fighter jet aircraft, while not being overly sensitive.
The Sling’s performance matches and outdoes almost every aircraft in its class, while being highly economical and fun to fly. Its excellent instrumentation options make for a very unique, state-of-the-art flying experience.
The wide cockpit, excellent all around view and substantial luggage capacity make the Sling a very comfortable, yet versatile aircraft.
