Flight Design, Garmin Collaborate On Price Reductions

G3X Packages Reduced Nearly $18K

When asked what is the number one barrier to aviation at the entry level, most people give a one-word answer: "Cost." No one questions how difficult the last three years have been for aviation in all sectors, and so an announcement Wednesday from Flight Design and Garmin may be some welcome news.

“Thanks to innovative thinking between leaders at Flight Design and Garmin, we are pleased to announce Garmin G3X Special Pricing, available at the start of AirVenture 2011, said John Doman, Director of Business Development, Global Sales & Marketing for Flight Design. “This is really more akin to price slashing!”

The Garmin G3X Special Pricing Package offers a retail price of only $9,980; previously it was $27,795. The SL40 radio is now part of package instead of SL30 though the SL30 remains available as option at additional cost. Finally, the Special Pricing Package installs a TruTrak 2.25-inch back-up attitude director indicator (ADI); the TruTrak back-up battery supply to the ADI has been deleted from the package.

“We are confident this greatly increased value will boost sales of the Garmin G3X package and make our market-leading CTLS affordable to more customers,” said Flight Design GmbH CEO, Matthias Betsch.

One of the first aircraft certified under ASTM International standards in 2005, the CT (“composite technology”) has been a top-selling LSA in America for six years. Flight Design sold the first LSA to India and was the first LSA to earn Chinese Type Design Approval. And, CTs have been flown around the world three times.
