Sling 2 build / Midwest Sky Sports

Talk about airplanes! At last count, there are 39 (and growing) FAA certificated S-LSA (special light sport aircraft). These are factory-built ready to fly airplanes. If you can't afford a factory-built LSA, consider buying an E-LSA kit (experimental LSA - up to 99% complete).

Thanks Warmi! I love the panel. I think they laser etch the stick grips as well. Very nice. What did you have done at Midwest Sky Sports? ADS-B? Did you knock out any rivets for me?

BTW, the patriotic paint job on their new Sling 2 is great!

Who owns that awesome looking Sting S4 in the background? That is a great looking airplane!

Yep, awesome.

The default panels we get from dealers for companies like TLUltralight or Flight Design look like amateur jobs on 100k price tag items :D

Are you doing IFR Sling ? The panel looks like it is ready for something like Garmin 430 ...

Short answer: yes.
Long answer: I thought long and hard about spending the extra money for IFR...I decided that for some extra cost...it was worth it to me...I also think I would be perfectly happy, 92% of the time, VRF equipped,...but....there is nothing more maddening, TO ME, than being grounded due to a low overcast...(as an IFR 20,000 hour pilot)...hence.....I am paying for the Garmin GTNxxx that allows me to go IFR...I also splurged on Sirius/XM just to have Fox News, music, etc on the 5 -8 hour flights...hey!...it is my one-and-only dream-machine, final, airplane....

FYI: The leather seats are the same leather as BMW....

PS: If you are lurker... Midwest Sky Sports is freakin' awesome...and that is an understatement...period...dot...end...
