The Airplane Factory Sling 2 is a South African two-seater light aircraft designed and produced by The Airplane Factory in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 2009 the specially modified second prototype was flown around the world in a westerly circumnavigation which took 40 days. This was the first time any aircraft of this class had achieved a circumnavigation. The design complies with the requirements of four different regulatory aircraft classes.
The Sling 2 is supplied as a kit and as a ready-to-fly aircraft and can be operated as a Light-sport Aircraft or homebuilt aircraft.
