Light-Sport Aircraft market leader Flight Design is looking for additional professional organizations to represent the LSA as the country slowly emerges from two years of deep recession. Building on dealers added during the downturn, the new initiative includes both aircraft sales outlets and service centers for the entire United States and aims to better serve more than 300 owners of CT-series LSAs, according to company officials.
The entire management team from Flight Design USA and Flight Design Germany will be present at the upcoming Sebring LSA Expo over Jan. 20-23. “We would like to speak to businesses interested in working with Flight Design and will be available all during the show,” noted Flight Design CEO Matthias Betsch.
“We anticipate 2011 will be a year of improving fortunes for all of aviation and including Light-Sport Aircraft sales,” explained Flight Design USA President Tom Peghiny. “To assure our customers have access to the best service, and to make the CTLS available at a dealer closer to buyers, we are seeking to enlarge our distribution.”
“Flight Design USA has done a great job for us, selling more LSA than any other company by a wide margin,” said Betsch. “But we realize the value of representatives that are conveniently located, whether for flight demonstration and purchase or for service after the sale.”
Betsch also said that the company is nearing completion on a proof-of-concept four seat model of the CT series and expects to show the new aircraft for the first time at Aero in Friedrichshafen Germany in early April, 2011. “Following the German debut, we will bring our four-seat concept aircraft to AirVenture Oshkosh.”
The Flight Design CTLS is an all-carbon-fiber LSA that features a glass panel, Garmin radio stack, and a BRS airframe parachute as standard equipment.
