Sling High Wing Exterior

Design the exterior of your
Sling Aircraft to your liking

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

Your Sling High Wing is powered by a
160 hp turbocharged fuel-injected Rotax 916 iS

Based on the proven concept of the Rotax 912 and 915 engine series, the Rotax 916 iS engine offers increased power, the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, full take-off power up to 15,000 feet (4,572 m) and a service ceiling of 18,000 feet (5,486 m).

Your Sling High Wing is fitted with an MT Hydraulic Constant Speed Propeller. This propeller automatically adjusts its blade pitch angle, allowing it to maintain a constant RPM. This operation perfectly suits modern engines, particularly the turbocharged fuel-injected variety.
