Aero-TV: Staying Power -- Flight Design USA's Tom Peghiny Updates the CTLSI

One of the LSA Movement's Few True Success Stories Evolves Yet Again

There are but a few truly successful stories in the LSA community. After fighting years of false hope and bitter hype, only a few manufacturers have proven their mettle sufficiently not only to survive but to come out on top of a competition that can have but a few real winner.

One of those winners is the Flight Design CT series... solid little airplanes, that fly well, look good and are supported both professionally as well as competently. BUT... it's time for the CT series to evolve yet again.

In addition to a number of long-awaited avionics upgrades, the big news revolves around the adaptation of the fuel-injected Rotax 912iS to this amazing little airframe.

The injected engine was projected by Rotax to improve fuel economy by 20 percent, along with other improvements. 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.
