At AirVenture Oshkosh 2013 Flight Design is pleased to announce the selection of Garmin avionics for its new C4 all-carbon composite four-seat light aircraft.

“Garmin’s innovative glass cockpit avionics will enhance the capabilities and safety of the C4,” said Matthias Betsch, President and CEO of Flight Design. “The ability to offer our customers features like Angle of Attack (AoA), dual Air Data Heading Reference System (ADHRS), and an autopilot control module along with an integrated glass cockpit at a competitive price, makes the C4 an exceptional value.”

“We are delighted to be chosen as the avionics supplier for this next generation of Flight Design aircraft,” said Carl Wolf, Garmin’s vice president of aviation sales and marketing. “We look forward to offering an integrated cockpit with features like Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) and an integrated autopilot with a one-touch level button to restore the aircraft to straight and level flight, to this class of aircraft.”

 The Flight Design C4 is an all carbon composite four-place light aircraft based upon the advanced design of the popular Flight Design CT series of aircraft.  Key features are the new Continental IO-360AF alternate fuels engine, conceived to “future proof” the C4, an advanced glass panel cockpit and an integrated, full airplane parachute system. Flight Design has always designed its planes for excellent cross country performance and the C4 is planned to have up to a 1,200 nautical mile range and a very high useful load of 1,320 pounds.
