Greece based Egnatia Aviation is expanding its current Diamond fleet with another six Diamonds: five single DA40 NGs and one twin DA42-VI.

The DA40 NG and the DA42-VI represent the newest versions of Diamond’s technology leading piston aircraft fleet, the first certified general aviation piston aircraft to combine modern technology airframes, avionics and power plants. The aircraft are equipped with efficient, clean and reliable jet-fuel piston Austro engines and Garmin G1000 NXi avionics systems, representing the very best of modern piston aircraft technology.

Dimitris Lymperakis, Director Egnatia Aviation: “It is a strategic decision to actively address the booming pilot demand for the next 20 years, therefore we have placed an order of six new Diamond aircraft which will be delivered by end of 2019, with the option for another six for 2020. This will increase our fleet to 22 aircraft forming one of the biggest and youngest fleets of Diamond aircraft globally. Our commitment to provide the highest level of Airline pilot training and at the same time significantly increase our capacity can only be achieved by teaming-up with leading partners in the market, such as Diamond Aircraft Industries. The proven efficiency and performance of Diamond aircraft was a one-way decision for us.”

We want to thank Egnatia for their trust in our state-of-the-art AUSTRO ENGINE jet-fuel piston-engine powered training aircraft that allows them to offer comprehensive training programs for both single-engine and multi-engine aircraft, with modern controls and instruments in an aerodynamic, safe and innovative airframe.”
