Go where singles fear to tread

Imagine this: It’s dark. You’re in the mountains. You’re picking up ice. Your intended destination just closed. It’s times like this that you’re grateful to have the added security of a second engine, flight into known icing certification and incredible endurance. All critical safety features when turning back is not an option. The peace of mind that comes with the Gamin G1000 glass cockpit, GFC700 autopilot, EECU controlled turbo-diesel engines, and a tough composite airframe, is just part of a long list of standard features.

Don’t worry about high cost maintenance, fuelling and single engine operations:
Our DA42-VI equipped with Jet fuel engines offer you extreme fuel efficiency (consumption at 60% 10.4 US gal/hr), take you further (range at 60% 1,200 nm), are fuelled with lower priced Jet-A1 (average relation from Jet-A1 to Avgas 1:2) and have tremendously lower maintenance expenses than conventional gasoline engines.

With traditional twins, single-engine operations were their Achilles heel. Feathering an engine in the ultra-modern DA42-VI is as easy as flipping a switch, and restarting it after a simulated shut down is just as simple. With a single-engine ceiling of 18,000 feet and a positive rate of climb with one engine inoperative, the aircraft is supreme on the performance front, too.

Advanced avionics and all weather capability at day and night

The capable Garmin G1000 cockpit makes flight planning and plan changes in the air less challenging.
A dual-alternator, dual battery system provides you with the confidence that your avionics will be there when you need them. The anti-static primer combined with static wicks ensures crisp reception especially in precipitation when you need it most.
Your DA42-VI is also certified for IFR (Instrumental Flight Rules), VFR (Visual Flight Rules) and Night VFR.
A proven TKS ice protection system helps the DA42-VI to withstand flight into known icing conditions. Wings, tail, propellers and windshield are protected with TKS fluid, systems are redundant and rigorous flight tests have demonstrated the ability of the DA42-VI to withstand icing long enough to get you back to safety.

Built to be the ultimate trainer aircraft

You are preparing your students to be the best airline pilots? The DA42-VI is the finest choice you can take for multi-engine rating. You’ll be in good company, many leading flight schools, make the DA42 a key plane in their training fleets because it offers students a training experience that helps with a transition to the regional jets. Jet-like thrust control, advanced Garmin G1000 glass cockpit, and an ability to fly approaches and procedures in conditions similar to those encountered by light jets and turbo-props, means you can get ready for that day when you become an airliner pilot.
