Sling High Wing - the newest addition to the iconic range of Sling Aircraft.
Featuring all the great Sling handling characteristics combined with the inherent stability of the classic high wing design. Added to this, all the latest modern-day design safety features, including ballistic parachute recovery system, low workload Garmin glass cockpit, efficient and powerful 141 hp Rotax 915 iS turbocharged powerplant and Airmaster Constant Speed Propeller.
The extra-large cabin features wide, easy access doors, superb 4 place ergonomics and best in class comfort and quality. The removable rear seats increase the already generous baggage area providing for a great utility platform.
An outstanding 4 place high-performance aircraft which will happily cruise long distances at 145 kts or take you and your family to your favourite backcountry destination. Available in tricycle and taildragger variants.
“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.”
