ZK-SLG (c/n 182)
 
The two-seater Sling was designed by Mike Blyth bigger than some of the comparable sport aircraft and can be certified as an LSA. 
 
The prototype first flew on 18 November 2009.  It is produced by Sling Aircraft (Pty) Ltd of Johannesburg in South Africa as a kit or a fully built up aircraft.  After a full testing programme the second prototype was flown around the world from East to West in 40 days in 2009, which proved the credentials of the design.  The Sling is of all metal construction with composite cowling and fairings.  The design has been extended to a 4 seater aircraft which is called the Sling 4 while the 2 seater has been renamed the Sling 2.
