CGS Aviation will continue to build and sell the ASTM-approved U.S. light-sport air- craft as well as the Canadian advanced ultralight aircraft (AULA) version of the CGS Hawk Arrow 2. All single-seat ultra- lights and the amateur-built version of the Arrow 2 will be built and supported by Hawk Aircraft. The factory for the ASTM models will remain at the current location in Alabama for now. The current website, www.CGSav- iation.com , will serve the ASTM and AULA models, and a new website and company name, called Hawk Aircraft, will service the single-seat ultralight and amateur- built kit aircraft. The current factory has reorganized to better comply with ASTM standards. No time frame has been given, but the company expects it to be a short period of time. Hawk Aircraft will move to a dif erent facility on the same property. Contact info for both entities will re- main as cgsaviation.danny@gmail.com for e-mail and 251-454-0579 for phone. A new parts policy for all used aircraft not owned by an original builder will begin, requiring registration with Hawk Aircraft, with details to be announced soon. Changes at CGS Aviation
