SLIDE52 I have been using and enjoying my DA 42 a lot. Great trips to Florida and North Carolina along with local flying to fun places. My DA 42 is the nicest airplane I have ever owned. Thanks to the LifeStyle Aviation Team for making this a great experience! David in PA

Thank you for all of your help with buying my first airplane. You made it very easy and i enjoyed my first flight home in it which totaled 13.9 hrs on the hobbs. When i am ready to buy my next airplane you will definitely be the guy I call again.
I can highly recommend the folks at LifeStyle Aviation to anyone looking to purchase an aircraft.

Seth Levine I wanted to thank you for what has been thus far a tremendous experience. To this day, I am not sure exactly what drove me to pick up flying.   I don’t have any relatives that fly; a few workmates had taken it up a long time ago but, at that time, it seemed like too much of a time commitment and a bit expensive.  Whatever the catalyst, one day I woke up and I decided I wanted to try it out.   Gateway Aviation, a flight school and LifeStyle Aviation Network Partner out of Queen City (KXLL), was one of the schools I called; their website wasn’t anything special, but I gave a call and they just sounded like a fit.  I went up there with my son and my stepdaughter and with some time in a short ground school, I found myself in the pilot seat of a Cessna 172.   I was a bit surprised and a bit stressed when, all of a sudden, Andy (Andrew Wells) told me to push the throttle and take off.   Andy gave me some short instruction on how to turn and then gave us a little zero gravity experience.  Then it was time to land; I wouldn’t say I nailed it and I have no idea how much Andy helped, but I was safely on the ground and ready to do this flying thing a lot.

Diamond DA20 For Sale When it was time to sell my aircraft I turned to John Armstrong of LifeStyle Aviation.  John and the folks at LifeStyle Aviation made the process simple and painless, answered all my questions promptly, got me a great price, and closed the deal in short order.  Even though my plane was on the lower end of the price spectrum, John gave me the same level of care and service that he gives to his high end clients.  If you are thinking of selling, give John a call - you will be pleased with the result!

My name is Chad and this was my first airplane purchase. The good people at Lifestyle Aviation made the process a wonderful and memorable experience. They were very patient with me though the entire ordeal and were especially keen to answer all of my questions. (Yes, I had more than a few!) I consider myself very fortunate to now have been exposed to what many would perceive as "World Class" service and care. I would like to thank the Lifestyle Aviation team for taking such good care of me and my needs. You are truly second to none! Sincerely, Chad

I wanted to thank you for your excellent service in getting us into a fantastic plane. Having never owned a plane before, and having flown a cirrus with airshares elite, I was nervous about making the plunge. You and your team were and are attentive to all the concerns and details of the purchase, and followed through with all the promises that you made...impressive and uncommon so kudos to you and your team. In addition, the delivery and transitional training was excellent, and the DA 40 is an absolute joy to fly. The fit and finish of the diamond is a Porsche or BMW! I look forward to many years of fun flying this great plane and our continued relationship. Once again, thank you for making it all happen.

LifeStyle Aviation Ambassador - Rod LuskWhen the folks at LIfeStyle Aviation asked me to be an Ambassador for aviation I was delighted to say Yes! Flying has been such a blessing and passion I'm happy to share with those considering getting involved. As I understand our role as Ambassadors its to be an experienced resource to folks that are considering getting involved in flying. I know I sure did appreciate talking with experienced folks when I got started so I think this is a great idea. Over the years I've own many aircraft and flown many places and I can't imagine what my life would have been like if I had not enjoyed those experiences or had the advantage of moving around the world in that way. I got the opportunity to fly gliders early in my flying career and for me I thought that was a lot of fun and certainly was a great training ground for basic pilot skills. It might explain why I've liked the Diamond line so much over the years too since they have long wings and really good glide characteristics for powered aircraft. I've lived in mid-west and currently live north of Denver. I've owned several DA40's and a DA42 so I can certainly provide experience on those aircraft among some others.  I'll be happy to share my experience, answer questions about learning to fly and being involved in using aircraft as a lifestyle, hobby or business tool. See this recent related post about Rod Lusk flying from North Carolina to Denver.

David in VAOur DA40 enabled us to take trips that we would not have been able to do otherwise because we are both busy professionals. During our first year we enjoyed flying to a resort in the Virginia mountains, Tangier Island, the Outer Banks of NC, Cincinnati and Cleveland to visit family and a great trip to Oshkosh. I've really enjoyed having my own plane to do my ongoing and advanced pilot training because it allows me to be very proficient in the plane. Our experience with LifeStyle was great and everything went well.  They took care of delivering the plane and making sure I got off to a good start.

I use my DA40 to commute to my job which is 260 Miles away from where I live. It takes 4.5 hours to 8.5 hours depending on traffic to drive. It takes "door to door" from my home to my business desk only 2 and half hours via my plane. I've been commuting by air now for over 7 years. The value of this is my family gets to live where we want near family and I get to do the job I love and live where I want. My employer sees me in the office 5 days a week and I have dinner with my family the majority of nights. My aircraft is a time machine. The DA40 allows me to do it with confidence. Right now is a great time to learn to fly. There has never been an easier time to learn to fly or use aircraft due to our modern training and flight technology.
