“Diamond Aircraft is honored to have Embry-Riddle select the Diamond DA42-VI for their Prescott and Daytona campuses,” said Scott McFadzean, chief executive officer of Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. “Embry-Riddle has been at the leading edge of aeronautical training for decades, and Diamond represents the leading edge of general aviation aircraft, with an all-composite design, proprietary jet fuel piston engines and Garmin G1000 NXi glass cockpits, so the partnership is a natural fit for both organizations.”

“In keeping with Embry-Riddle’s rigorous focus on aviation safety, new aircraft for our fleet were selected following an exhaustive evaluation by a team of experts on both our Prescott, Ariz., and Daytona Beach, Fla., campuses,” said Dr. P. Barry Butler, president of Embry-Riddle. “We are honored to extend our successful, long-term relationship with Diamond Aircraft Industries to replenish the Embry-Riddle fleet with DA42-VI aircraft, to provide our students with a highly effective and reliable training platform that will serve them well.”

“The Diamond DA42-VI aircraft offer superior high-altitude performance and are fully compliant with Federal Aviation Administration ADS-B (navigational) requirements,” Professor Parker Northrup, Flight Department chair on the Prescott Campus said. And added that the planes offer “full authority digital engine control,” known as FADEC, and therefore will prepare Embry-Riddle students to fly with the most up-to-date technology.
