Flight Design's new four seat C4 aircraft to include BRS parachutes as standard equipment

Flight Design will introduce a full-scale mock-up of their new four seat C4 at this year's EAA Air Venture in Oshkosh. As in all previous Flight Design models, a BRS parachute system has been designed for the C4 and will be included as standard equipment? on all C4's sold.

"It is no coincidence that Flight Design's CTLS and MC LSA models and the Cirrus SR20/22 are the industry's top selling aircraft in their market segments, and that they all include a BRS system as standard equipment... not as an option," stated Boris Popov, founder and director for BRS Aerospace.

"The C4 is an attractive new alternative for the pilot who wants to own a state-of-the-art, high wing, composite aircraft together with a truly giant cabin and the excellent visibility that has made the Flight Design CT line of aircraft famous. It will have fixed gear and a lot of commonality with the CT," said Matthias Betsch, CEO of Germany-based Flight Design GmbH. "It will be big and quiet... quite an elegant airplane," he said. The C4 price point for the U.S. market has been established as not-to-exceed $250,000, including the BRS parachute system, with an estimated range of 1,200 nm and a 160 kts cruise speed, according to Betsch. Flight Design's development schedule targets a C4 prototype flying early next year, with EASA and FAA certification by the end of 2012 and production and deliveries starting in 2013. Betsch said C4 buyers will have options for both an avgas/alternate fuel power plant or a Jet A diesel engine, with engine supplier partners to be announced soon.

Larry Williams, CEO of BRS Aerospace, adds, "We are especially proud that Flight Design continues to trust us to provide the highest quality emergency parachute systems in the world for their new aircraft. We have enjoyed a solid, mutually-beneficial relationship for many years and this commitment on their part further reinforces and emphasizes our dual strengths in providing the safest possible aircraft."
