Flight Design Tops SLSA Ranking List

Offers CT Super Sport Injection

After a successful 2018, Flight Design is once again at the top of the SLSA (Special Light Sport Aircraft) “All Fleet” ranking according to FAA registration data.

With the new 2018 registration numbers that were released, Flight Design was second total (when including Experimental LSA and Amateur Built kits) and first in Special Light Sport Aircraft (ASTM-compliant, ready to fly).

“We are excited by the news and want to thank our staff and USA dealers,” said Flight Design CEO Lars Joerges. “Flight Design was the market leader since the beginning of Light Sport Aircraft category, which was one of the reasons we acquired the company.” said Joerges.

In a related announcement, Flight Design general aviation will now offer the CT Super Sport Injection in North America. The Flight Design CT Super Sport — the popular model sold in Europe due to its high cruising speed of 120 knots, a VNE of 146 knots, a useful load of more than 600 pounds and an affordable price — will now be reintroduced to the Americas, reported Tom Peghiny, President of Flight Design USA. “We have primarily sold different versions of the CTLS since its introduction in 2008 and wanted to bring back a lighter model primarily for the U.S. and Canadian markets. After consultation with our Canadian distributor, Flight Design Canada we decided to begin importing the CT Super Sport Injection, which is the model equipped with the advanced Rotax 912iS, said Peghiny.

The sporty CT Super Sport is a derivative of the famous CTSW but has been upgraded with many features of the CTLSi including the 912iS 100 horsepower fuel-injected engine, a single beam composite “no bounce” main gear, a centrally located 10-inch Dynon SkyView Touch EFIS/EMS/Map Screen, and 2020-compliant Dynon Class One Mode S Transponder with ADS-B out. Lightly equipped as described, the CT Super Sport Injection has a useful load of over 600 pounds can cruise at 120 knots, has a VNE of 146 knots, a maximum range of 700-800 nautical miles and is compliant as an SLSA in the U.S. and as an Advanced Ultralight Aircraft in Canada, as well as all other countries following the FAA-LSA regulation.
