Sling 4 Built In 7 Days At U.K. Airshow

Ten-Person Team Goes From Kit To Flight In One Week

In their own version of a "One Week Wonder", a Sling 4 has been built and flown in record time at the Sywell Aerodrome, United Kingdom, during the 70th Anniversary LAA Rally. LAA stands for 'Light Aircraft Association' and is one of the oldest and most respected aircraft associations in the U.K.

A complete Sling 4 aircraft kit was packed in South Africa and then delivered to the Sywell Aerodrome, U.K., on August 26. Over a 7 day period, a 10 person build team, consisting of 5 TAF employees and 5 LAA volunteers, fully assembled the kit, ground ran the engine and test flew the completed aircraft at the show.

The build team worked 12 hours a day at "The Airplane Factory Sling" display.
 
This the second Sling 4 build of its kind. Back in September 2015, the TAF South Africa team built a Sling 4 in only 4 days, with 40 workers. This aircraft, Sling 4-4-40, was delivered to TAF USA as their Sling 4 demonstrator and has amassed over 650 hours of flight time.
