Overview – Sling LSA

Designed to be a perfectly balanced, built for heroic adventure

So, what you may ask, is the ideal training aircraft? One that can satisfy the demands of a modern-day high-flight-time fixed-wing flight school operation? Well, that depends on what you are looking for. In days gone by, the Cessna 172 and Piper Cherokee were the go-to training aircraft. However, the goalposts have moved considerably, to the point where the typical legacy aircraft can no longer fulfil the role that flight training in this modern era demands.

Enter the Sling LSA. Based on the tried and tested Sling 2 – an aircraft which has been plying its trade in flight schools both locally and internationally for the past 11 years. Collectively, these aircraft have logged thousands of hours in this environment, with some now exceeding 7,500 hours of abuse. The Sling LSA is an evolution of the brand, specifically designed to satisfy the demands of modern-day flight school operations.

Built entirely with a robust all-metal construction, the aircraft is well suited to the rigours of the flight school environment. The low wing layout provides for predictable handling while still being a ‘stick and rudder’ aircraft. Characteristically stable and well-harmonised, but still requires positive aircraft control to be flown well. The Sling LSA demands more finesse and ‘stick and rudder’ skill, compared to the Cessna 172, which is a great flight training aircraft trait.

Sling LSA exterior | Design your own aircraft

Design the exterior of your
Sling Aircraft to your liking

You can turn your Sling into your personalised dream aircraft using our numerous standard or complex paint scheme and vinyl design options. Effortlessly elegant, superbly appointed and finished with a forensic eye.


A truly first-class travel

The Sling LSA’s sublime and beautifully appointed interior provides executive two-seat comfort. In order to handle the harsh treatment of the flight training environment, the Sling LSA interior is fitted with hardwearing materials and comes standard with authentic leather seat covers. With its lavish carpeting, the Sling LSA certainly shows an elegance that adds a touch of class to aircraft interiors.

In addition, the canopy interior has a foldable heatshield for occupant protection and comfort on hotter days. 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 LSA is powered by a Rotax 912 engine
and is available as a 912 ULS or 912 iS

While the 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, the Rotax 912 iS offers all the well-known advantages of the Rotax 4-stroke engine series as well as electronic fuel injection and an engine management system contributing significantly lower fuel consumption, features which will ultimately enhance the flying and ownership experience of pilots.

Your Sling LSA as standard comes fitted with a Warp Drive 3 Blade ground adjustable propeller.  Warp Drive builds solid carbon fiber propellers for a wide variety of applications. These propellers are affordable and light-weight and come standard with nickle leading edge protection to protect from stone chips and damage caused by extended IFR flight in rain and hail.

Sling LSA avionics | Design your own aircraft

Excellent instrumentation options make for a unique and state-of-the-art flying experience at a fraction of the cost of our certified competitors

The Sling LSA has a premium all Garmin avionics suite. This includes the G3X full primary flight display with optional second MFD, G5 backup flight display, GTX45R ADS-B in and out transponder, paired with a GTN 650 Xi GPS / NAV / COMM / MFD navigator and Autopilot with GMC507 control panel completing the line-up. This set-up is so advanced, that the FAA has deemed the Sling LSA as a Technically Advanced Airplane (TAA). The FAA recently changed the Commercial Pilot requirement for 10 hours of ‘complex’ time to include training in a TAA. They understand that managing systems, whether it be a landing gear control or a complex avionics system with an autopilot, teaches a pilot to cope with complexity that can be transferred to other complex airplane systems. Therefore, a student can now receive all training from ab-initio through PPL and take on the Commercial Pilot check ride in the Sling LSA, as it is a TAA.
