The Airplane Factory

The Airplane Factory is located at Tedderfield Airpark in Johannesburg, South Africa. The factory itself is a sprawling Hangar Complex on the airfield that encompasses approximately 31,000 sq ft. The Hangars house the assembly line for Sling 2 & Sling 4 production. Factory offices are also located within the Hangar so Mike, James and Andrew can keep a watchful eye on the process for quality assurance. The factory uses CNC presses and routers for all cutting and punching of the aluminum sheets. There are buildings for fabrication, sub-assembly assembly, final assembly, composites, and paint shop. There is a full time staff of 140 people and the complex includes all the amenities necessary for the production of high-quality Slings.
