More than 1,800 CTs are flying in 39 countries. One of the first aircraft certified under ASTM International standards in 2005, the CT (“composite technology”) remains the top-selling LSA in America through eight consecutive years, according to company officials. Flight Design sold the first LSA to India and was the first LSA to earn Chinese Type Design Approval. In 2011, the German company unveiled its C4 four seat aircraft based on the CT technology.
