OVERVIEW - SLING TSI

As pilots rise through the ranks and through aircraft of ever-increasing sophistication, one question remains constant: What is next? And one answer will always resonate: More. More speed. More capability. More power. More capacity. The Sling TSi encompasses all of these qualities and has become an aircraft with an uncompromising mission: To offer unrivalled performance, safety, comfort and reliability to any pilot, no matter the mission. The Sling TSi is not simply more aircraft. It is more of all the reasons you fly.

Following on from the legacy of the Sling 2 and Sling 4, the Sling TSi has the same great handling characteristics that made its predecessors legendary. The Sling TSi has been critically acclaimed for its all-round capabilities, superb handling and functionality. 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 baggage, and cruises effortlessly at altitudes up to 18,000 ft, making it the ultimate long-distance cross-country machine.

“A four-place cruiser that carries 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)

SLING TSi EXTERIOR

Design the exterior of your Sling Aircraft to your liking.

You can turn your Sling into your personalised dream aircraft using our numerous standard or complex paint scheme and vinyl design options. In addition, Sling Aircraft uses LEDs for all exterior lighting. Not only do these use less energy and generate less heat, they are exceptionally bright and allow for sharply defined beams. Effortlessly elegant, superbly appointed and finished with a forensic eye.

SLING TSi INTERIOR

A truly first-class travel experience.

The Sling TSi's elegantly crafted interior showcases executive four-seat comfort. Using only genuine leather and lavish carpeting, the Sling TSi stands out with an elegance that adds a touch of class to aircraft interiors. Available in four colour palettes: Cast Iron, Red Velvet, Indigo Sky and Cloud Burst with stitching, piping and panelling in complementary colours.

In addition to the leather interior, cabin heating and ventilation are standard for all occupants. The carbon fibre instrument panel and centre consol throttle add to the elegance which the Sling TSi exudes. The superior comfort and elegance, as well as the unsurpassed attention to detail puts the Sling TSi in a class of its own.

POWERPLANT AND PROPELLER

Your Sling TSi is powered by a 141 hp turbo sport injected Rotax 915 iS.

Based on the proven concept of the Rotax 912 / 914 engine series, the Rotax 915 iS engine offers increased power, the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, full take-off power up to 16,000 feet (4,877 m) and a service ceiling of 18,000 feet (5,486 m).

Your Sling TSi is fitted with an Airmaster 3 Blade Constant Speed propeller. These variable-pitch propellers automatically change its blade pitch in order to maintain a chosen rotational speed. This operation perfectly suits modern engines, particularly the turbo sport injected variety.

AVIONICS

Designed by pilots for pilots, the Sling TSi contains a selection of Garmin technologies designed to deliver a refined and integrated flight experience.

The advanced configuration of the Garmin 10” G3X touch EFIS and backup Garmin G5 electronic flight display delivers exceptional performance, reliability and peace of mind. In addition, the Sling TSi’s Garmin standard avionics package includes radio, autopilot system with control panel, transponder, multifunction system interface and Bluetooth audio panel. Garmin’s highly respected user-friendly interface places an abundance of information at your fingertips whilst providing unparalleled capabilities.

By combining visual cues and data readouts once scattered across a myriad of instruments, G5 makes flight information easier to scan so pilots can respond more quickly and intuitively to any inflight situation.

Instrumentation - Garmin Radios - TAF

GARMIN RADIOS

Designed specifically for light sport aircraft, the GTR 200 combines powerful Comm capabilities with advanced workload-reducing features formerly only found in high-end certified systems. Its slim 1.35” tall design allows you to make the most of limited space in your panel while 10 W of transmit power helps ensure solid communications between you and ATC or other aircraft in your vicinity.

Instrumentation - Garmin Transponder - TAF

GARMIN TRANSPONDERS

For nearly 20 years, Garmin has led the development and deployment of various ADS-B projects, and they have optimized their ADS-B solutions for light sport aircraft. The GTX 35R ADS-B transponder integrates with Garmin G3X and G3XTM Touch to provide you quick, cost-effective and powerful ADS-B “Out” capabilities you can control through your flight display.

GARMIN AUTO PILOTS

The Garmin GMC 507 control panel offers a dedicated interface for the GFC 500 autopilot in certified aircraft as well as G3X autopilots in experimental and light sport aircraft. GMC 507 allows pilots to control the advanced features offered by Garmin digital autopilot systems, including advanced autopilot modes such as indicated airspeed hold, independent flight director and third-axis yaw damper (when installed with appropriate servos). Plus, the control wheel integrated into the GMC 507 makes for easier pitch, vertical speed and airspeed adjustments, while separate knobs allow twist-control of heading/track and altitude.
