After successfully crossing the South Atlantic’s relative nothingness, the Sling 4 light weight Experimental & Crew are safe at home in South Africa. They managed to traverse 26,414 Miles of land and sea while simultaneously accumulating 221.6 Hours of flight time on their Prototype airplane. And they can say little more than their baby performed flawlessly!
Now back at home and having personally experienced the reliability of this machine at work over vast expanses of open ocean and rugged jungle their next step is preparing to make this aircraft available to the general aviation market, designing yet another aircraft, and possibly starting the preparations for yet another journey (keep quiet on this though)!
We would like to thank all of you that have followed us on this adventure and shown your support. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have questions about the Sling line of aircraft, or would like to know more about the Airplane Factory and its team members. With that being said we wish you…
