First Fuel-Injected CTLSi Aircraft Being Delivered In The U.S.

New Engines Proving Popular In The Established CTLS Airframe

The first Flight Design CTLSi airplanes powered by the new fuel-injected Rotax 912 iS engine have landed in the U.S., and many have reportedly been delivered to customers both in the United States and abroad.

Despite the effects of hurricane Sandy around New York City, where Flight Design USA Light-Sport Aircraft make landfall, the first of CTLSi aircraft have arrived and been shipped on to the Northeast U.S., Florida, the Midwest, and the West Coast. While demand is high for the new "i" version of the LSA, airplanes with the carbureted 912 ULS engine are also available.

The injected engine was projected by Rotax to improve fuel economy by  20 percent,  along with other improvements. Lone Mountain Aviation president Kenny Scherado said, “We received and assembled one of the first CTLSi aircraft with the new Rotax powerplant. Besides the fuel economy, the CTLSi with the 912iS engine runs smoother and starts easier.” As with all Rotax engines, 91-octane automobile gasoline works very well at lower cost. The engine can also use 100 LL avgas or can mix either in any proportion.

“We now have several CTLSi aircraft equipped with the Rotax 912iS engine in the USA and more en route from Germany,” said Flight Design USA President Tom Peghiny. “Early reports from our dealers across the country are a strong indication of the popularity we can expect from the CTLSi.” Peghiny said that after seven years of importing the Flight Design CT series, the model remains atop the market share list, a position it has enjoyed since the beginning of the Light-Sport Aircraft era.
