First USA Sling Taildragger Sold!!!

We have some very exciting news to announce! After a wonderful trip to the Copperstate Fly-In, The Airplane Factory,
Inc. has sold its first U.S. based Sling Taildragger (Sling TD). This tailwheel version of the Sling 2 is the latest model
designed by Mike Blyth and The Airplane Factory team. The factory has received the order and has already begun the
production process. This beauty should arrive in the U.S. in about 6 months and we can't wait to have her join the Sling
family.It's been a great last few weeks for The Airplane Factory.  In addition to the recent sale of the taildragger, two
Ready-to-Fly Sling 4's will arrive in the U.S. by the start of 2015 and will be available to demo. Ready-to-Fly Sling LSA's
will be arriving every 2 months, with a few orders already placed, and 4 more kit builders have joined the Sling builders

The Sling Taildragger means business!
Our kit builders are also making great progress on their airplanes.  Jean and Jordan recently drove down to visit Robby,
who's just about ready to mount his engine.  Jean spent the day with Robby and was very impressed with the fine job he
has done. Robby's Sling 2 is shaping out nicely and he should have her flying in the next few months. Here are some
pictures of the great work Robby's done:

If you live in Southern California, you've probably noticed the Sling flying its tail off.  Two flight schools in the Los

Angeles area are operating the Sling and have been putting over 100 hours on it every month. Enjoy this video of two

of Sling Flying Club's CFI's as they enjoy a fun flight in Sling N514NG.


Hope you all have an amazing week, and please stay tuned!  We will be headed to the 2015 U.S. Sport Aviation Expo

in Sebring, Florida and will have many more exciting announcements in the coming weeks.
