We have standardised on Garmin instruments throughout. Most importantly, they are modern, reliable and you can get the backup you need no matter where you are in the world.
Designed from the ground up with a native touchscreen interface, the Garmin 10” G3X Touch flight display is the smartest, most advanced large-format flight displays Garmin has ever designed specifically for LSA and amateur-built aircraft. As a result, the integration and versatility provided by the G3X Touch make it the ideal panel
layout for your Sling Aircraft.
Backup instruments as standard are 3 1/8” analogue instruments for airspeed and altitude. Falcon equivalent airspeed indicators have been one of the most chosen flight instruments by kit plane builders and sport pilots. There are many great advantages: excellent slow speed characteristics; very progressive increments; variety of ranges; light weight; short length; affordable price; and reliability. All airspeed indicators are housed in an aluminum case and all parts are made with metal.
Specifically designed for light sport aircraft, the GTR 200 combines powerful Comm capabilities with advanced workload-reducing features formerly only found in high-end certified systems. Its slim 1.35” tall design allows you to make the most of limited space in your panel while 10 W of transmit power helps ensure solid communications between you and ATC or other aircraft in your vicinity. Information displays on the large, sunlight-readable display. Brightness levels can adjust automatically to the natural light level in the cockpit, or can be adjusted manually by the pilot.
For nearly 20 years, Garmin has led the development and deployment of various ADS-B projects, and they have optimized their ADS-B solutions for light sport aircraft. Their GTX 35R ADS-B transponder integrates with Garmin G3X and G3XTM Touch to provide you quick, cost-effective and powerful ADS-B “Out” capabilities you can control through your flight display. Although this item does not come standard, it is available as an optional extra.
The Garmin GMC 507 control panel offers a dedicated interface for the GFC 500 autopilot in certified aircraft as well as G3X autopilots in experimental and light sport aircraft. GMC 507 allows pilots to control the advanced features offered by Garmin digital autopilot systems, including advanced autopilot modes such as indicated airspeed hold, independent flight director and third-axis yaw damper (when installed with appropriate servos). Plus, the control wheel integrated into the GMC 507 makes for easier pitch, vertical speed and airspeed adjustments, while separate knobs allow twist-control of heading/track and altitude.
For distress alerts, your Sling Aircraft is fitted with the standard frequency of the 406-MHz E-04 ACK ELT. This internationally-regulated mobile radiocommunication service aids in search and rescue operations to detect and locate aircraft. The ELT model, which includes 250 knot whip antenna does not come standard, however it is available as an optional extra.
