Flight Design celebrates 25 years with new "Jubilee" series

The U.S. Light-Sport Aircraft sector is just eight years old and the first FAA-accepted aircraft began arriving in 2005 and Flight Design GmbH has been involved with aircraft development and manufacturing aircraft for 25 years. To mark this celebration milestone, the company is offering a special "Jubilee" series of their models with unique features and value pricing.

This will be a global celebration of Flight Design's 25th Anniversary. "It has been an exciting 25 years where we brought interesting new airplanes to markets around the world," said Flight Design CEO Matthias Betsch. "For this anniversary we have a special model created expressly for our worldwide dealership partners and their customers."

Flight Design will build the special Jubilee edition in a very limited series of 25 airplanes. The specially constructed airplanes add a personal touch, a unique equipment list, and special pricing. The Jubilee treatment can be applied to any of several models in production, including CTLSi, CTSLi (Supralight) or MCi. To insure quality and desirability, only 25 Jubilee airplane models will be manufactured.

"Each 25th Anniversary Jubilee airplane will have an upper management 'Godfather' assigned to personally monitor its build process to ensure our extraordinary level of quality is attained throughout every step and detail of manufacturing," added Betsch. Jubilee models will have a special inscription plate affixed with signatures of Flight Design's top managers, the name of that aircraft's "Godfather" and its sequential number within the series of 25 models built for the celebration.

Flight Design's 25th Anniversary Jubilee airplanes will have the following standard features: Rotax 912iS engine; Dynon SkyView avionics, dual 10-inch displays (for LSA/EASA 1,320-pound/600-kg CTLSi and MCi) or dual 7-inch displays for CTLSi at 1,040-pound/472.5-kg, or single 10-inch display for CTSLi; Dynon autopilot; 8.33-kHz communications radio with Mode S transponder; Garmin 796/795 GPS; electric stabilator trim; two upgraded Bose A20 Active Noise Reduction (ANR) headsets; input capability for mobile phone and music; special two-tone leather interior, including leather instrument panel and carpeting similar to the interior in Flight Design's new four-seat C4 mock-up as seen at airshows; and, a special 25th Anniversary theme exterior design painted on aircraft (not decals) with 25th Anniversary commemorative logo. A special series of options is also available at attractive prices. An extended warranty of five years for structural parts and three years for mechanical parts plus a 25th Anniversary leather flight brief case will complete the limited edition airplanes.

"These will be very special airplanes," said U.S. Sales Manager John Gilmore. "As they are offered around the world, only a small number are available for U.S. buyers. Having one of these Jubilee airplanes with their distinctive exterior paint design and special equipment will make them highly memorable and desirable."

The program is available effective immediately until the 25th Jubilee airplane is built with delivery occurring from February to June, 2013 at the rate of five airplanes per month.
