John and Nathan's Sling 4 Project

July 28, 2016 - The Journey Begins

Oshkosh AirVenture 2016 -- This is where it all began. My son, Nathan, and I had looked at several aircraft over a number of years thinking that someday we might actually buy one of them. This was the year. We were very impressed with the Sling 4 especially after Jean gave us a test ride on the day after Airventure was over. The Sling 4 handled great, light on the controls but very stable. We made a deal to purchase the Sling 4 quick-build kit that was on display. It was actually several months before we picked up our plane, but this is where it all began.
