Sling

Available at Jandakot Airport. One in fleet.

The Sling was designed with the aim of creating the most practical and desirable light sport aircraft available. The Sling’s flying characteristics make for a perfectly coordinated, highly responsive control setup. This gives her the distinct qualities of a fighter jet aircraft, while not being overly sensitive.

The Sling’s performance matches and outdoes almost every aircraft in its class, while being highly economical and fun to fly. Its aluminum construction makes for ease and consistency of construction, while offering proven strength and a longer lifespan than some of our composite rivals.

The Sling’s airframe strength and durability means that she won’t break easily and, if you treat her right, she’ll last you for the rest of your life. Its excellent instrumentation options make for a very unique, state-of-the-art flying experience.

The wide cockpit, excellent all around view and substantial luggage capacity make the Sling a very comfortable, yet versatile aircraft.

Our Sling is available to The Royal Aero Club of WA members and the general public for private hire, training or charter. Ask about our Special Members Deal on the Sling! Bookings can be made via our friendly Operations Team on 08 9417 0000.
