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 a law enforcement payload.
The wings have a hard point position and wiring harness to support a camera gimbal, as well as 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 makes the CTLE an excellent surveillance and communications platform.
