This site is the build log for my Sling 4 project. I’m not a professional builder, in fact this is my first build and am learning as I go. Please make sure you think about what you are doing and don’t blindly follow what I’m doing here. I typically do a fair amount of research using other builder’s blogs and also local resources.

Now a little about me. I’m a computer software/systems engineer living in Southern California. I currently hold a private pilot certificate with an instrument rating. I obtained my certificate in 2008 and have experience in a few different aircraft. I did my private pilot work in a Cessna 172 and my instrument rating in a Cirrus SR20 (Avidyne Avionics). I have a bit of experience in a Diamond DA40 and the Sling 2. I’m part owner of a Grumman Tiger at Torrance Airport and also working on my Sling 4 in my garage. I’m married to a very tolerant wife with three beautiful daugthers.

If you’d like to contact me please feel free to send me an email at jpavlick@mymule.com. I’d love to hear from you regarding building or flying.

  1. Could not find your email. I’m close to ordering the Sling 4 TSi. I currently one a 2008 Cessna Corvalis 400, however I’m looking to change to an experimental since most of my flying is now for fun instead of business.

    Although I have been flying for over 40 years, I will do the Midwest quick build as I’m a software engineer with not much building experience.

    Will you happen to be at Oshkosh this year?


    • Hi Steve. No I don’t think I’ll be able to make it to Oshkosh this year, though I’d like to. My email should be on the site somewhere but if you want to email me, I t’s jpavlick@mymule.com. I’m a software engineer as well and this is my first build.
