      The Sling 2 Kit is The Airplane Factory’s solution for the Do-It-Yourself-er. Few things are more intimate and adventurous than building and flying your very own airplane and The Airplane Factory believes that it is imperative for any Sport Aircraft manufacturer to offer a kit version. This allows all the home-builders out there the freedom to really understand and get involved in the process of creating a flying machine! If you’re the type that wants to know the ins-and-outs of your aircraft you can build your own and truly get a feel for her. And when you eventually fly her, the experience will be that much more rewarding as you have accomplished a great deal. The Sling 2 Kit is identical to the Sling LSA and upholds the same performance qualities as its S-LSA ASTM-standard sister aircaft. It can handle almost all types of flying but really excels as a performance handling, cross-country aircraft with its completely harmonized controls and 800+ nm range. The kit allows the builder a bit more freedom in the assembly and registration processes. The kit can be certified as an E-LSA or Experimental-Amateur Built depending on the owner’s needs and desires. Each kit comes with a full set of instructions and builder’s log for progress reporting and record keeping. If you want to feel like a King, build a Sling!

      Available as Standard or Quickbuild Kit The aluminum he chose was 6061 Aluminum Alloy. To be more specific, 6061-T6 Aluminum, a tempered grade that has been heat-treated and aged to add a significant strength element. The Sling uses all traditional AN Hardware in its construction, meaning it lives up to the US Air Force/Navy Standards. Solid rivets are used on the main spars, which are standard aviation type spars with our own unique design for added strength, and pull rivets for the rest of the structure, making construction a bit easier while maintaining structural integrity. The Airplane Factory uses high quality rivets manufactured in Germany that are well known throughout the aircraft manufacturing industry. Composites are also used throughout the airplane where appropriate, for example, cowling, fairings at the wing roots and the intersection between the vertical stabilizer and the fuselage, wheel pants, as well as the instrument panel and canopy structure. For reduced weight but added strength, the landing gear is also composite construction which can take a heavy amount of stress regularly without issues.
