SLING HIGH WING – BEYOND THE MISSION… GO EVERYWHERE……TAKE EVERYTHING!
“The Sling High Wing design sets a new standard for Sling Aircraft. It is the culmination of many years’ experience in the design, manufacture and production of the successful range of Sling Aircraft.
We have always used the best materials wherever possible in our aircraft and this is particularly true with the Sling High Wing. For the first time we have a substantial portion of the aircraft, being the centre fuselage, produced in composite fibre. This has allowed us to design an aerodynamic aircraft which is beautifully shaped, light and extremely strong.
The Sling High Wing is a modern aircraft with a perfect blend of practicality, performance and beauty. It has a large comfortable cabin with a high useable load, long range, excellent handling and built in active and passive safety features.
The Sling High Wing will cruise at 145 Knots carrying four as well as luggage in comfort while burning just 28 litres per hour (7.4 gph), giving a real range of 880 nautical miles (1,630 km).
For the first time we have a highly versatile aircraft that has a large useable cargo area. Remove the unused seats and controls quickly and easily, then fill it up with any kind of cargo. The Sling High Wing can also be flown with the doors removed for photographic work or for use as a parachute jump ship.
Having a strutless high wing aircraft means you can land almost anywhere in the outback such as alongside bushes and low fences without the worry of wing strut limitations.”

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.

POWERPLANT AND PROPELLER
Your Sling High Wing is powered by a 141 hp turbocharged fuel-injected Rotax 915 iS.
Based on the proven concept of the Rotax 912 / 914 engine series, the Rotax 915 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 in excess of 25,000 feet (7,620 m).
Your Sling High Wing is fitted with an Airmaster 3 Blade Constant Speed propeller. These variable-pitch propellers automatically change its blade pitch to maintain a chosen RPM. This operation perfectly suits modern engines, particularly the turbocharge fuel-injected variety.
Excellent instrumentation options make for a unique and state-of-the-art flying experience, at a fraction of the cost of our certified competitors.
Garmin 10-inch G3X touch EFIS, Garmin G5 backup EFIS, Garmin GTR 200 COM radio, Garmin GTX 35R remote transponder, Garmin GSA 28 autopilot system with Garmin GMC 507 autopilot control panel, Garmin GAD 27 Multifunction system interface and Garmin GMA 245R Bluetooth Audio Panel.
We have standardised on Garmin instruments throughout. They are modern, reliable and you can get the backup you need no matter where you are in the world.
The full range of Garmin EFIS’(Both PFD & MFD), GPS navigators, NAV COM radios and transponders(ADSB in/out, Traffic, Weather & SiriusXM) are available as optional extras to upgrade to your instrumentation requirements.
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.
Designed by Garmin’s “Team X” engineering group specifically for the light sport aircraft markets, the G5 electronic flight instrument delivers exceptional performance, reliability and ease of installation as an all-in-one backup glass cockpit display. By combining visual cues and data readouts once scattered across a myriad of instruments, G5 makes flight information easier to scan so pilots can respond more quickly and intuitively to any inflight situation.
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.
