Overview – Sling 2

Designed to be a perfectly balanced, built for heroic adventure

The Sling 2 was built for heroic adventure. Her 2009 maiden voyage flew Sling Aircraft founders Mike Blyth and James Pitman Around-The-World (ATW). A 40-day, 45,000 km journey that included 22-hour legs of the severest of weather conditions. Her aluminium airframe makes for ease and consistency of construction, while offering proven strength and a longer lifespan than most composite rivals.

Designed to be a perfectly balanced aircraft, the Sling 2 is a sexy looker that would out-perform other aircraft in its class while being highly economical and fun to fly.

Being a stressed-skin, semi-monocoque aircraft, the Sling 2 is made to precise standards from aviation grade aluminium, punched using CNC machines. Rugged aluminium lines, combined with cutting-edge tech advances, ensure that the Sling looks the way an aircraft should and flies even better.

Sling 2 exterior | Design your own aircraft

Design the exterior of your
Sling Aircraft to your liking

Turn your Sling into your personalised dream aircraft using our numerous standard or complex paint scheme and vinyl design options. In addition, Sling Aircraft uses LEDs for all exterior lighting. Not only do these use less energy and generate less heat, they are exceptionally bright and allow for sharply defined beams.  Effortlessly elegant, superbly appointed and finished with a forensic eye.

Sling 2 Interior | Design your own aircraft

A truly first-class travel

Sublime and beautifully appointed, the Sling 2’s interior features executive two-seat comfort. Enveloped in authentic leather and lavish carpeting, the Sling 2 stands out with an elegance that adds a touch of class to aircraft interiors. Available in four colour palettes: Cast Iron, Red Velvet, Indigo Sky and Cloud Burst with stitching, piping and panelling in complementary colours.

Sling 2 Sling LSA power plant | Design your own aircraft

Your Sling 2 is powered by a Rotax 912 / 914
and is available as a 912 ULS, 912 iS or 914 UL

A 100 hp Rotax 912 ULS offers a time between overhauls of 2,000 hrs and is the best power to weight ratio in its class. Alternatively,  the Rotax 912 iS offers all the well-known advantages of the Rotax 4-stroke engine series as well as additional features which will ultimately enhance the flying and ownership experience of pilots. A 115 hp turbo charged Rotax 914 UL on the other hand, offers more performance at high altitudes while delivering lower weight engines.

When powered by the Rotax 912 ULS / iS, the Sling 2 is fitted with a Warp Drive 3 Blade Ground Adjustable propeller. These propellers are more affordable and lighter in weight and when compared to a fixed pitch propeller. Ground-adjustable propellers mean that pitch changes can be made on the ground to optimise the aircraft for current payload and flying conditions. However, when powered by the Rotax 914 UL, your Sling 2 is fitted with an Airmaster 3 Blade Constant Speed propeller. Variable-pitch propellers automatically change its blade pitch in order to maintain a chosen rotational speed. As a result, this operation perfectly suits modern engines, particularly the turbo charged variety.
