German light sport aircraft manufacturer Flight Design selected Garmin avionics for its new normal-category aircraft, the C4, a four-place composite single-engine aircraft. The new Garmin suite will feature angle of attack, dual air data heading reference system, synthetic vision and integrated autopilot with one-touch leveling.

The C4 features the Continental IO-360AF alternate fuels engine and an integrated full aircraft parachute system. The C4 will have a 1,200 nm range and a useful load of 1,320 pounds.

Flight Design also announced that it is working with the Northern Lightweight Design Network in Hamburg and the German Ministry or Economics and Technology to develop and incorporate “safety box” technology into the C4 cabin that features more energy-absorbing features and better ergonomics designed to enhanced crash survivability.
