Ahead of our Sling Madagascar Tour 2015 here's a video clip of a pilot in a Cirrus ditching in the sea.
The Sling Tour will leave Tedderfield Airfield, home of The Airplane Factory later this year, and we will fly up to Vilanculos on the east coast of Mozambique before heading out for the 4 1/2 hour flight over the Mozambique Channel to Toliara International Airport on the west coast of Madagascar.
The tour group will be well equipped with ELTs (emergency locator trasmitters), life rafts and life jackets in the event of any mishap during the flight over water, but will hopefully not be required. The video clip shows how a safe landing can be made on the sea and the solo pilot was rescued by the USA coast guard. Email me at email@example.com to join the tour.
|Our Sling ZDL is also equipped with a ballistic parachute such as the one in the photo|
