OVERVIEW - SLING TSI

Like its predecessors, the Sling TSi has been critically acclaimed for its capabilities, effortless handling and all-round functionality. As one review wrote, “Sometimes just the right combination of factors come together to create a really great airplane.” (Alton K Marsh, AOPA). Those factors are: a generously proportioned 4-seater that handles like a fighter jet, controls that are a natural extension of the mind and a superbly balanced buy that will stoke your love of flying.

Following on from the acclaimed handling capabilities of the Sling LSA, the Sling TSi offers the same perfectly-coordinated flight characteristics, with controls that are highly responsive yet not overly sensitive.

It comfortably seats four with luggage and still cruises effortlessly and efficiently, making it the ultimate in affordable cross-country flying.

This is an aircraft with an uncompromising mission: To offer unrivalled performance, safety and reliability in the hands of all pilots no matter the mission.

“A four-place cruiser that carries four adults, several hours’ worth of fuel and a respectable luggage load. This sexy Sling TSi does so in leather-wrapped comfort. It has a wider cabin than a Bonanza, looks incredible  on the ramp. Its turbocharged Rotax 915 iS whisks it along at a brisk 148 knots.”
Marc C. Lee (Plane and Pilot Magazine)
