Our Factory Build-Assist Programme offers you the opportunity to build your own Sling at the factory in South Africa with guidance and assistance from our team of experts.
For newcomers to the E-AB world, the prospect of building your own aircraft introduces you to unfamiliar territory. The programme is designed to guide you through the process of assembling your Sling from start to finish, with the assistance and supervision of qualified Sling Aircraft technicians taking away the many negatives and unknowns associated with owner building of an aircraft kit.
It also offers you the opportunity to become intimately familiar with your aircraft in a way that non-builders will never be.
Sling Aircraft is one of the most trusted names in the production of experimental aircraft. Our extensive experience allows us to get your aircraft flying on time and on budget with a focus on quality and safety. We offer design consultation, extensive research and development, integration of systems and back it all with our commitment to safety and attention to detail. We work closely with every customer to ensure that their aircraft is customised to their individual requirements and that a safe and dependable aircraft leaves our facility.
Sling Aircraft’s role in the programme is to provide state-of-the-art facilities, equipment, expert advice and provision of a portion of the actual construction labour. This allows the owner to complete their 51% contribution required for experimental aircraft and know that their Sling Aircraft will be of the highest quality.
Simply put the comfort of knowing that your aircraft was built at the Sling Aircraft factory to Sling Aircraft standards will live with you forever.
The Factory Build-Assist Programme is conducted over a three-month period at Sling Aircraft Head Office, situated at Tedderfield Airfield (FATA) in Johannesburg, South Africa.
South Africa bowls our customers over with its stunning climate, abundance of natural splendour, exotic wildlife, cosmopolitan flair and friendly faces. A country rich in diversity, animal life, food, sport and culture, this is an entire continent’s worth of greatness concentrated into a single gorgeous build assist package. There are hundreds of reasons to come to South Africa – savannah safaris, abseiling adventures, canopy tours throughout the beautiful mountains and world class beaches to name but a few – and once you are here, you’ll discover millions more.
