One new version of the CTLS is the "Lite" model — $20,000 less (at $119,980) and 50 pounds lighter (720 pounds empty weight) than the current CTLS. The price reduction results from increased U.S. content, including avionics, gauges and the ballistic recovery parachute. Also new is the CTLS-HL (high lift) designed for the European glider-tow market, and also for float applications in North America. The -HL comes with a 115-hp Rotax 914 Turbo engine, a 12 percent increase in wingspan and a larger stabilator. The price premium is $14,000, and Flight Design is co-opting with Clamar on a set of composite amphibious floats. Flight Design expects to find a ready market for its High Lift version in European glider clubs, which now face ever-more-stringent noise restrictions.
