“Flying a Sling Taildragger in AmericaBy Dan Johnson, October 13, 2015 Light-Sport Aircraft comprise an diverse gaggle of some beautiful airplanes. Choices are available in a dizzying array of configurations and variations. In fact, so many selections are available to you (as Special LSA) that I created PlaneFinder 2.0 to help folks narrow the decision
Just over a week ago, we had the unique opportunity of delivering 2 brand new Sling 4’s on the same day! Mr Simon Smith, along with Mr Willem Gouws took delivery of their gorgeous new aircraft, and were over the moon! Here are some photos of the occasion:
There will be a ‘Welcome Home’ party this week Friday, the 25th, for James and Patrick, and we’d love to have you there! It’s going to be at The Airplane Factory | Hangar 8 | Tedderfield Airpark | 23 Nettleton Road | Eikenhof | Johannesburg South We suspect festivities will kick off around mid-afternoon! Come
We have just got airborne off rwy10 climbing directly to 6000ft turning onto a heading of 170 which is taking us out over the mountains to the east coast. Getting clearance to do this most unusual flight turned out to be quite easy once Patrick had explained our aim, and we were helped
After a long, nerve-wrecking crossing of the Pacific from the West cost of the US to Hawaii, Jean and Patrick are now safe in Honolulu. Touching down at 8am local time (8pm SA Time), Jean sent us this photo when on short finals for Honolulu. Stay tuned for more on the following legs!
Having gotten airborne last night at 22:48 SA Time (10:48 LA Time), Patrick and Jean are now well on their way across the Pacific to Kahului (PHOG) on the island of Maui. Stay tuned for more updates about the second half of the around the world trip!
Happening from the 17th to the 20th of September, we’d love to get lots of Sling owners and pilots out there involved in this awesome event, all for a great cause, not to mention a huge amount of fun!
