Impressive From any Angle.

Capable and Safe

A pilot’s first choice

Whether you are a new pilot looking for the perfect first aircraft, an experienced aviator with discerning tastes or a flight school of a high quality standard, buying a DA40 New Generation is always a smart decision. The modern and safe composite aircraft with advanced avionics and the sophisticated Austro Engine 168 hp AE300 diesel engine running on Jet-A1 is an exceptional IFR (Instrumental Flight Rules) platform, both for training and traveling. You’ll be impressed by its excellent flight characteristics, remarkable fuel-efficiency and the stunning panoramic visibility out of the canopy.

Highlights

Unmatched Safety Record

The DA40’s industry-leading safety record is the result of Diamond’s commitment to protecting occupants with a vast array of both active and passive safety features. Active safety features include stable handling at low speeds, short take-off and landing distances, superior visibility and state-of-the-art avionics. Passive safety features such as aluminum fuel cells protected by the DA40’s dual carbon fiber spars, help prevent post impact fires, a 26G rated safety cell cockpit and a host of other built in features help keep you safe should the unexpected happen. As a result, the DA40 line tops the general aviation list with both the lowest overall and fatal rates (Source: Aviation Consumer January 2012).

Roominess and visibility

DA40 owners and operators love the generous cabin, comfortable seats and the spacious baggage area ensuring hassle-free travelling with your family, kids or business colleagues. The roomy cabin eases operations in real-life training environment as it can easily accommodate more people than just the flight instructor and the student and is suitable for different body types. The distinctive shaped canopy gives you incredible visibility you won’t experience in any other aircraft in this class.

Garmin G1000 and GFC700 autopilot

Once you fly the Garmin G1000 cockpit and its fully integrated Garmin GFC700 digital autopilot on the DA40 NG, you will not want to fly anything else. The Garmin G1000 glass cockpit is the definite industry standard and equivalent to the avionics used in modern Airliner cockpits, a tremendous benefit for Flight Training Schools as it eases the transition of pilots from trainer aircraft cockpits to the modern airline environment.

The Garmin GFC700 digital autopilot is a pilot’s dream. Significantly more precise than analogy systems, it is fully integrated into the Garmin G1000 system, supports constant-speed climbs and descents (called ‘flight level changes’, just like in jets), and can even step you down automatically on en route and approach step-down fixes, thanks to the Garmin G1000’s built-in VNAV capability. More integration, more functionality, more precision, better reliability – it all adds up to reduced pilot workload and better safety.
