Congratulations! Diamond Aircraft received validation of type certificate by the Civil Aviation Administration of China for the Diamond DA62 twin!

“We are very proud to have Chinese certification for our DA62. This is another huge milestone for our company,” said Liqun (Frank) Zhang, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Austria. “We are seeing a great potential for the aircraft in China and are looking forward to sell many units in the near future.”

With a spacious cabin, offering optional three row seven passenger seating, excellent payload and exceptionally low fuel burn, the DA62 is best described as a flying SUV. It represents the ultimate development of Diamond’s piston aircraft line, incorporating decades of experience in certified composite airplane construction, safety, jetfuel piston powerplants and advanced avionics integration.

“The certification of the DA62 in China marks a major milestone, not only for Diamond Aircraft, but also for the general aviation industry in China. This is by far the most advanced piston aircraft certified in China to date, with an all carbon composite structure, modern jet fuel FADEC powerplants, Garmin G1000 NXi avionics, Flight Into Known Icing (FIKI) and Oxygen Systems to allow flight up to 20,000 feet (6,100 meters).” said Scott McFadzean, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Canada. “With seven seats, large cabin space, low operating costs and superb flight characteristics, the DA62 is not only the perfect aircraft for owner pilots in China, but we also see a large market for the “chauffeur flown” market, where an owner would purchase the aircraft, but have a professional pilot fly for them, allowing them all the benefits of private aviation travel at a fraction of the cost and without the need to get their pilots license.”

Since market introduction, over 120 units of the DA62 have been sold to customers all over the world. The first DA62 delivery is scheduled for September 2019.
