Diamond Aircraft announced new strategic partnership with the United Aviate Academy in Goodyear, Arizona, by ordering 5 new jet-fuel powered DA42-VI twins. The 4-seat DA42-VI is the most recent version of Diamond’s technologically advanced piston twin, the first certified general aviation aircraft to combine a modern airframe, avionics, and power plants. Well over 1,100 DA42’s have been delivered since its introduction, outselling all other certified piston twins combined.

Dana Donati, CEO United Aviate Academy, commented: “We are excited to incorporate the DA42-VI Diamond Aircraft as our multi-engine trainer to our growing fleet. With its advance aircraft systems and performance, the DA42-VI provides us the unique opportunity to prepare our pilots for the next step in their career while honoring our commitment to using the most sophisticated training aircraft on the market today.”  

Trevor Mustard, head of sales and marketing, Diamond Aircraft Canada, said: “We are very pleased to have partnered with United Aviate as they continue to grow. Their mission to provide world-class flight training through equal opportunity initiatives will further incentivize a broader spectrum of student pilots and help meet the demand at the airline level. Diamond is proud to be part of United Aviate’s new endeavor as it trains the pilots of tomorrow with the safest, most sustainable twins on the market today”.

The all-composite DA42-VI’s are equipped with efficient, clean and reliable 168 hp jet fuel AUSTRO engines AE300, Garmin G1000 NXi with 3-axis Automatic Flight Control System and optional electrically powered air conditioning. The DA42-VI is an excellent platform for Multi-Engine-Piston (MEP) training. With its unique combination of performance and utility, the jet fuel powered aircraft is designed to make transitioning from a single engine to a twin much easier. The aircraft generates fuel savings of up to 50% compared to conventional AVGAS powered twins and its panoramic canopy provides excellent visibility during all flight maneuvers.
