Premier Aircraft Sales recently sold and delivered the first brand new Austro Engine jet-fuel powered Diamond DA40 NG to UFLYVI, based in St Thomas US Virgin Islands. UFLYVI is a growing flight school based in USVI with a diverse fleet. The most recent addition of the Diamond DA40 NG with its state of the art avionics, high safety rating, and efficient powerplant will be the most modern aircraft of the fleet.

“We couldn’t be more excited to welcome the Diamond DA40 NG to its new home. The aircraft will be placed in our operation in St. Thomas, USVI,” says Matthew R Stewart, owner and CFI, CFII, MEI of UFLYVI LLC, “We recently partnered with a new local FBO, Standard Aviation, and plan to advertise the most modern and safest flight training aircraft in our area through our combined network. The DA40 NG is sure to attract new students seeking the safety and comfort of this aircraft.”

“Diamond Aircraft are proven to operate in diverse climates; the composite airframe is not susceptible to corrosion and is perfectly suited for operation in the hot and humid Caribbean,” says Scott McFadzean, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. “We look forward to UFLYVI operating this first new DA40 NG in the US Virgin Islands and to our continued partnership and growth together.”

“We are proud to be representing the US Virgin Islands and are sure that the DA40 NG will quickly become popular throughout the Caribbean due to its industry leading safety record, advanced avionics equipment, modern good looks and economical Jet A1 fuel operation.” states Jeff Owen, Vice President of Sales at Premier Aircraft Sales, “Premier is supporting the region from its office and service center facilities at Fort Lauderdale Executive Airport in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.”

UFLYVI is a flight school based in St Thomas USVI. The school has recently partnered up with a new FBO on the field, Standard Aviation.
UFLYVI started with Matthew R Stewart and a Cessna 172 back in 2016. In 2017, USVI got hit with two severe hurricanes and the school progress was delayed. In early 2019, the school was incorporated and added a PA28-161 Piper Warrior. There is now a full-time flight instructor on staff and several full-time active students and many more part-time. In October 2020, UFLYVI added a brand new state of the art Diamond DA40NG to the fleet.
