We, (Charl and Kai) both fly CTSW’s. These wonderful aircraft are designed in Germany and are entirely manufactured from carbon composite materials, which speaks to their low overall weight, efficiency in the air and low maintenance. The components are manufactured in the Flight Design factory in the Ukraine and then brought to The Flight Design factory in Kamenz in Germany, where they are assembled, engines and avionics installed and all testing done, prior to being packed and shipped to their destination. In order to offer customers a reasonable delivery time, we have booked and paid for a permanent production slot which allows for a 5 to 6 month delivery time from the date of receipt of deposit.
Our base is at Morningstar Airfield (www.wcmc.co.za), just 20 minutes from the centre of Cape Town. We have close links to Sideslip Aviation, which is the AMO on site, as well as to the Morningstar Flying Academy. Sideslip will be tasked with the assembly of all CT’s, for which they will be trained at the factory in Kamenz in Germany. Morningstar Flying Academy is able to provide conversions on to CT aircraft for new owners. Test flight are also possible from here, subject to prior arrangement.
At present, there are 16 registered CT’s in South Africa, and we are confident that we will add to these numbers soon. We have yet to come across a CT owner, who is not thrilled with their aircraft and and it’s performance..
We also have a good relationship with Flight Design approved European CT dealers, who have previously owned and refurbished aircraft available. Let us know what you are looking for, or if you have a CT to trade in, we will do our best to accommodate you.
Please have a look at the various models and configuration options depicted on the site, and we also encourage you to have a look at the links to the Flight Design websites in the USA(www.flightdesignusa.com) and Germany (www.flightdesign.com), this will give you a very good idea, what Flight Design is all about.
Please feel free to call us at any time to discuss all things LSA, or come and visit us on site at Morningstar, just call in advance, so that we can make sure to be on the ground when you arrive.
We look forward to being of service to you soon !
