as we all know, these two topics are currently the most asked questions in the UL aviation sector. That’s why we would like to give you a short summary concerning your Flight Design aircrafts.
Is a conversion from 472,5 kg to 600 kg possible?
Flight Design Airframes are already made and tested according the ASTM requirements for 600kg since 2004! So every CT built after that date, depending on the new final requirements, can be converted. Older CT´s may also converted to higher take off masses, but the exact values will be defined during the upgrade process. Our conversion program, considering the lowest effort and reasonable costs for our customers, is currently under construction and will be released as soon as the requirements are published.
How to convert a PtF to (R) TC?
The conversion requires an Production Organization Approval (POA) according to Part 21G. We are in final stage of approval and also the conversion process is under development. Directly after that we will contact in Q3 2018 the customers for the conversion program.
