The Sling 2 is a two-seater, single-engine, tricycle undercarriage aluminum aircraft with a conventional low wing design, manufactured by The Airplane Factory of Johannesburg, South Africa. The aircraft is based upon the EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) CS-VLA (Certification Standard Very Light Aircraft) standard, having a maximum all-up weight of 700kg. With only minor modifications to the aircraft and the application of a revised Pilot’s Operating Handbook, the Sling may be made to comply with the requirements of the FAA Light-Sport Aircraft (LSA) category.
Simon Smeiman has again done a marvelous job in copying this modern little aircraft from the real world to our FSX and Prepar3D worlds. As usual, it sports a lot of ‘Smeiman Animations’, up to and including a fully functional emergency parachute!
