Sling TSi: Torrance To Tampa Nonstop


Sling Aircraft’s Jean d’Assonville and Wayne Toddun made the trip from Torrance, California, to the Lakeland area for Sun n Fun 2019 without a fuel stop. From an easy ride at 17,500 feet with a ripping tailwind to dodging rain showers in a frontal system at 800 feet over the Gulf of Mexico, the pair relied on the Sling’s turbocharged and intercooled Rotax 915, modern Garmin avionics and plenty of relief bags. d’Assonville recounts the flight and hits the highlights of the Sling TSi in this video.
