Sling Aircraft Sling 2
The Sling 2 aircraft is used often for recreational flying as well as training. It is a two seater light aircraft designed and made in South Africa. Since many IFC users here are training in a flight school, having this aircraft in Infinite Flight may help improve their flight school experience.
The Sling 2 was built for heroic adventure. Her maiden voyage flew Sling Aircraft founders Mike Blyth and James Pitman Around-The-World (ATW). A 40-day, 45,000km 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.
