Company History

Flight Design is a 26-year-old manufacturer based in Germany. The company remains the worldwide Light-Sport Aircraft market leader thanks to its popular CT series of aircraft. More than 1,800 of these aircraft are flying in 42 countries.

One of the first aircraft certified under ASTM International standards in 2005, the CT (“composite technology”) remains the top-selling LSA in America and many other countries through many consecutive years.

Flight Design sold the first LSA to India and was the first LSA to earn Chinese Type Design Approval.

Three times a CT has been flown around the world. With the development of its C4 four seat aircraft based on the CT technology, Flight Design is consequently enhancing its product portfolio into the next larger segment.

In close cooperation with its dealers and pilots, Flight Design continuously develops and improves its line of aircraft. Flight Design employs a team of 25 engineers to design and refine the CTLS and MC aircraft. A team of 200-plus workers in Germany and Ukraine contribute to the high-tech design and manufacture.

Technical innovations and continuously improved safety characteristics are a large contributor to Flight Design’s sustained growth. Since production of the high-technology, carbon-fiber CT was launched in 1997, more than 1,750 airplanes have been delivered to customers throughout the world.

Safety

The CTLS has been certified to international airworthiness standards in the United States, Europe, China and India. The aircraft was developed by Flight Design’s professional engineering staff with safety as the number one priority in their minds and includes a number of safety specific design features.

The structure of the CTLS is over 90% carbon fiber and aramid which provides superior cockpit protection or “Safety Cell” for the pilot and passenger. In addition to the structural safety built into the CTLS, four-point safety harnesses and wing located fuel tanks are just a few of the well thought out safety features of this state-of-the-art aircraft.
