Flight Design USA’s newest distributor, Flight Design West, has located two new aircraft, one in Santa Monica, Calif., and a second in Portland, Ore., as part of the growth of the sales and service outlets for the CTLS line of aircraft. The new facilities represent the company’s second and third locations on the West Coast. The first center is at Lone Mountain Aircraft in North Las Vegas, Nevada. Each of the flight demonstration and sales outlets can also arrange local flight training, company officials note.
Flight Design West’s Las Vegas service center also has established repair centers in Santa Monica and Portland to support the existing fleet of CT aircraft in the U.S., which is more than 300 strong, according to company officials.
“The choice for these locations was made so we have about a two-hour fight between any of our locations and we could effectively cover customers’ requests quickly and very economically,” said Mark Rogers, president of Lone Mountain Aircraft and managing partner of Flight Design West. “We are offering a special incentive to customers for the first deliveries in each of these markets to allow customers to take advantage of the Bonus Depreciation if they act before year end.”
The Flight Design CTLS is an all-carbon-fiber Light Sport Aircraft with an 850 nm range at 115 knots. A glass panel, Garmin radio stack, and a BRS airframe parachute are all standard equipment.
