The Flight Design CTLE

  The Flight Design, Composite Technology Law Enforcement (CTLE) airplane was developed from the Composite Technology Light Sport (CTLS) airplane design, but with an enhanced wing and electrical system designed to support law enforcement payloads.
  The wings have a hard point and wiring harness for surveillance payloads as well as optional wing tip wig-wag/landing lights.
   An auxiliary generator is standard equipment on-board the CTLE to support the additional power requirements of the electronic systems. With short field take-off and landing capabilities on hard or soft surfaces, 6 hours of loiter time and low stall speeds, the CTLE is an excellent surveillance and communications platform.
    Shown in the pictures N202TB “Talking Bird” is equipped with a UTC Aerospace Systems Cloud Cap Technology TASE 200 EO and IR camera, a Cappuccino computer processor, an iKey keyboard and a 8.4″ video display from Digital System Engineering. The Dynon SkyView 10″ flight displays includes synthetic vision, autopilot and traffic avoidance among its many features. The Garmin “AERA 560” allows for additional space on the instrument panel to install law enforcement radios.
