Mike Bylth (my first instructor) and James Pitman owners of The Airplane Factory in South Africa build the  Sling (LSA fixed wing) in 7 days and then flew it to Poland to the new owners. Read and follow their project on their website. These guys have spirit.

    I had the privilege of piloting the new RED Sling last December and I can say it is a remarkable machine, very docile and very comfortable and spacious for a 1.97 meter and 120 kg BIG RED airframe.
    The remarkable thing about the Sling that will be flying to Europe is that the plane was BUILT in JUST 7 Days!
    You have to take your hat of to these Guys and Gals from the good old South Africa!
