Twelve students from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich are currently “electrifying” the Sling TSI, a popular kitplane from south-african based manufacturer Sling Aircraft. It’s a four-seater low-wing design and will feature a 110 kW electric engine and a 50 kWh battery. The crew plans to get the E-Sling airborne in Summer 2021.
