“We are happy to welcome the most modern twin-engine light plane on the market to our fleet. My expectations for the DA62 are high. Due to the very efficient technology, we will be able to compete in the twin-engine light piston business at a very competitive price,” says Nisim Vanunu, Owner FNA Aviation Ltd. “With our DA40s and DA42 we are already very successful in training aspiring pilots, approximately 1,800 hours in total per year. We reduced our fuel consumption as well as maintenance costs tremendously compared to competitor aircraft in our operation.”

The economical fuel burn of the two AE330 Austro Engines of only 11.8 US gal per hour in total at 60% as well as the spacious and luxurious cabin will provide maximum benefits for FNA Aviation and its customers. We can’t wait to see more Diamonds flying in Israel.”
