I stumbled across the Aircraft Factory website. I have seen no mention on airventure.org or Oshkosh365 of this one, but they intend to fly the Sling LSA from South Africa to Oshkosh, starting in a few days then continue around the world. Heres hoping!

Vince - - thanks for putting this on our radar.  We "Twittered" it earlier today will try to spread the word further as they make their way towards Oshkosh, and there will of course be a very warm welcome here.

Thanks for the link Vince.  How do people get sponsors to have soooo much fun?
