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.
