Flight Design Offer E-Z Upgrade to C4

Leinfelden-Echterdingen, GERMANY / 1 February 2012 — Recognizing the loyalty that carries a customer from a starting model to a larger airplane, Flight Design has announced a strong incentive program to present-day buyers of its CTLS Light-Sport Aircraft. Buyers who elect can gain a delivery position for the German company’s coming four seater, the C4, plus an additional discount.

“Purchase a new Flight Design CTLS, MC or Supralight aircraft [for European customers] and have an exciting, new Flight Design C4 placed on order in your name under the preferential C4 ‘Early Bird’ order program. Your initial C4 order deposit (US $7,000 or €5.000) will be fully funded by Flight Design,” exclaimed John Doman, Director of Business Development and Global Sales & Marketing for Flight Design GmbH. “At the time of delivery of your C4, this deposit amount will be credited toward the balance due along with an additional discount of US $10,000 or €7.000. Total credit amount at delivery of your new C4: US $17,000 or €12.000.”

“This new program offers exceptional value to CTLS customers who may wish to upgrade to a larger Flight Design later,” noted Flight Design USA President Tom Peghiny. “This C4 E-Z Upgrade program joined with our recently announced eXtended Protection (XP) Warranty demonstrates how hard we are working to give the best prices and values to our customers. We respect the close relationship we have with our buyers and we are determined to maintain and improve it,” Peghiny added.

The C4 E-Z Upgrade program has a time limit. The offer is valid for new Flight Design aircraft purchased by retail buyers, including flight schools, from January 1, 2012 to April 30, 2012. The C4 E-Z Upgrade benefit is valid only for the original purchaser of a new CTLS, MC or Supralight under the program and is not transferable. Additional deposits toward the purchase of a C4 will be due when the prototype makes its first flight and five months prior to delivery. Those additional deposits must be made as required or the C4 E-Z Upgrade benefit will be forfeited.
