Academy Of Carver Aviation Also Becomes CT Distributor For
LSA manufacturer Flight Design has recently entered the Indian
market, and the largest flight school in India, Academy of Carver
Aviation Pvt. Ltd., has become a Flight Design Pilot Center
and the distributor for India.
"The new LSA airplanes are very attractive for flight schools,"
said Matthias Betsch, CEO of Flight Design. Especially in the
emerging market of India, flight schools need to expand and to
contain costs even when supplying the largest airlines with
The Flight Design CT series offers low acquisition and operation
cost, but they must also be reliable for instructional use hour
after hour, day after day. Betsch noted India has unusual proof of
the CT's reliability. "A flight around the world in a CT by two
pilots from the Indian Air Force has shown the reliability and
performance of the airplane," he reported. Academy of Carver
Aviation Pvt. Ltd agrees.
"The CTLS is mature, third-generation light airplane ... which
is easy to run and to service even in the geographical and
metrological conditions of India," observed Academy of Carver
Aviation Pvt. Ltd. CEO, Marc Carvalho. "The performance, range,
view and interior space make the CTLS superior to standard GA
airplanes therefore we expect a significant number of private
pilots buying Flight Designs and our instructors have never seen or
experienced a more comfortable work place."
As in many countries of the world, avgas has limited
availability in India. Therefore the use of automobile fuel can
increase the utility of the airplane substantially. The Rotax 912
engine in the CT can use either fuel, even mixed in any ratio.
Academy of Carver Aviation Pvt. Ltd. plans to replace the fleet of
GA basic training airplanes in the next 18 month by Flight Design
models and will open one more flight school in India by end of the
"We have investigated the Indian market since the end of 2007,"
said Betsch. "We are very proud to team up with Academy of Carver
Aviation Pvt. Ltd. and European Aviation Holding Company Pvt. Ltd."
European Aviation Holding Company Pvt. Ltd. represents more than 60
years of aviation business experience, and has more than 2.000
employees in India.
