Sling High Wing - Beyond the mission…
Go Everywhere......Take Everything!

"The Sling High Wing design sets a new standard for Sling Aircraft. It is the culmination of many years' experience in the design, manufacture and production of the successful range of Sling Aircraft.

We have always used the best materials wherever possible in our aircraft and this is particularly true with the Sling High Wing. For the first time we have a substantial portion of the aircraft, being the centre fuselage, produced in composite fibre. This has allowed us to design an aerodynamic aircraft which is beautifully shaped, light and extremely strong.

The Sling High Wing is a modern aircraft with a perfect blend of practicality, performance and beauty. It has a large comfortable cabin with a high useable load, long range, excellent handling and built in active and passive safety features.

The Sling High Wing will cruise at 147 Knots carrying four as well as luggage in comfort while burning just 28 litres per hour (7.4 gph), giving a real range of 880 nautical miles (1,630 km).

For the first time we have a highly versatile aircraft that has a large useable cargo area. Remove the unused seats and controls quickly and easily, then fill it up with any kind of cargo. The Sling High Wing can also be flown with the doors removed for photographic work or for use as a parachute jump ship.

Having a strutless high wing aircraft means you can land almost anywhere in the outback such as alongside bushes and low fences without the worry of wing strut limitations."
