Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. and Blue Line Aviation recently inked a firm order for 50 Diamond Aircraft, including single engine DA40 NG’s, twin engine DA42-VI’s and a Diamond Simulator, with an option for up to 50 additional aircraft. The order comes less than a year after Blue Line Aviation’s 8 year anniversary, which was celebrated with the delivery of a brand new DA 40 NG from Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. Blue Line, North Carolina’s leading flight training provider, has increased its fleet of modern aircraft to 16 aircraft, including ten DA40 NGs and two DA42-VIs. The company was founded in 2012 with one goal in mind: to provide the highest quality flight instruction in a professional environment. Operating new Diamond Aircraft aligns with that goal, allowing students to train in modern, technologically advanced aircraft.
    
“The timing of this aircraft order marks a significant milestone for Blue Line Aviation”, said Scott McFadzean, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc., “We have followed the tremendous growth of this operation very closely and are impressed with their laser focused vision towards the future during this pandemic, which has caused a drastic shift in short-term pilot demand in the industry. We are proud to count them among our greater Diamond Family and look forward to continuing and growing the partnership for many more years to come.”

“I’m thankful to everyone that has played a part in making Blue Line what it is today. We couldn’t have done it without the hard work of our staff, students, and friends at Diamond Aircraft,” said Trey Walters, CEO and Founder of Blue Line Aviation. “Currently, we train approximately 40 full time students at a time in our 5.5 month career pilot course. We expect to triple that, or more, with the new aircraft and recently announced full student financing. We’ve been able to change lives through flight training and do some good in the world. At the end of the day, that’s what matters.”

Blue Line is also in the midst of constructing a new $16-million, 50,000-square-foot headquarters at Johnston Regional Airport (KJNX) with plans to permanently relocate in 2021. The state-of-the-art flight training facility will feature hangar space, the Professional Pilot Training Center, a barbeque restaurant and rooftop terrace, simulator room, operations center and dispatch, flight briefing rooms, and Diamond Aircraft Maintenance, and administrative offices.
