Diamond Aircraft Austria and California based, Air Bear Tactical Aircraft, LLC are excited to jointly announce that Diamond’s special mission aircraft flagship will be touring the United States this summer. The tour is scheduled to start early July from Diamond Aircraft’s London, Ontario facility and will last until end of August/early September with a stop at the APSCON event in Reno, NV, 25 – 30 July, Air Bear booth 808, where the aircraft will be on the show floor for the entire week.

“This is the first time ever that the DA62 MPP is flying in the United States. The whole team has been putting a lot of effort into the preparations and everyone is very much looking forward to start this journey,” says Mario Spiegel, Sales Manager Diamond Special Mission Aircraft at Diamond Aircraft Austria. “Fully FAA certified, the aircraft will be delivering to North American launch customers beginning in early 2023. Air Bear has received robust response to the DA62 MPP and is ready to help you take your aviation program to the next level.”

Markus Fischer, Director, Special Mission Aircraft: “In cooperation with Air Bear and all other partners, we put a lot of effort into this demo as it is such important to show the airplane and its capabilities in the field. There is no question that we expect a big boost to the US market and generate a lot of interests and even some bookings during the demo. I am looking very much forward to receiving the first feedback from US pilots and operators to further improve our DA62 MPP capabilities.”

Air Bear’s Director of Law Enforcement Operations, John Nielsen: “The DA62 MPP has set the bar high for the future of airborne surveillance. For the first time, airborne law enforcement has an extremely capable aircraft designed specifically for the mission. With its unprecedented economics and outstanding safety characteristics, the DA62 MPP is indeed the wave of the future for airborne law enforcement.”

The DA62 MPP demonstration aircraft will be configured with a standard suite of mission equipment typical of many airborne law enforcement operators. The versatility of the MPP platform also allows it to be a solid performer for littoral maritime patrol, counter drug/illegal immigration and other ISR activities. Additionally, it is a solid performer in commercial aerial survey and pipeline/powerline mission applications.

The aircraft will be outfitted with the following mission equipment:
