CA18-1320
 
The CA18-1320 is the lightest weight version. It is designed for New Zealand's CAA Class Two Microlight category with a maximum all up weight of 600Kgs.
 
The basic aircraft does not come equipped with flaps or large grass all terrain tyres to keep weight to a minimum. Fuel is limited in each wing tank to 35 litres.
 
For this model you can choose between a full size J3 or PA18 Cub. The added bonus is that solo flight is from the front seat.
The CA18-1530 model is based on the 100hp Cub. With its 1530 MAUW capacity this model is suited for engines up to 120hp. To accommodate the increased weight capacity from the CA18-1320 model, it has increased size of the timber framework within the fuselage. The wings are the same, however the wing lift struts are larger and 50 litre fuel tanks are fitted.

Extra options available for the CA18-1530 model include:
- Flaps
- Larger main landing gear tries & rim kits for disc brake mounts
- Large tail wheel assembly
- Navagation and runway lighting kit
 
The CA18-1920 model is based on a 180hp retro fitted PA18 Super Cub. The CA18-1920 has a maximum all up weight of 1920lbs. To accommodate the increased load capacity, the timber framework within the fuselage along with the wing spar caps have been increased in size.
 
This model is an ideal platform to fit a STOL kit for those shorter and rougher landing areas.
 
 Classic-CA18-03
 
CADL was to be offering STOL components for this model by the end of 2016, the components were to include:
- Fibre glass hoerner style wing tips
- Carbon fibre leading edge coverings (to replace the plywood)
- Carbon fibre wing ribs
- Fowler flaps
- Modified undercarriage
