“For not one but two great new airplanes and for one of the most remarkable recoveries in general aviation, we award Diamond a Flying Editors' Choice Award for its DA42 L360 and DA42 NG piston twins,” states Flying magazine, in their March 2010 issue.
Developed from Diamond's turbo-diesel powered DA42 TDI, the innovative twins feature proven, yet state of the art all carbon composite airframes, the industry standard Garmin G1000 flightdeck, and a choice of 180 hp Lycoming IO-360 engines, or Diamond's proprietary Austro Engine AE 300 jet fuel burning turbo-diesel powerplants. With over 600 airframes delivered since 2005, the DA42 is the world's best selling twin, enjoying popularity as a capable personal airplane, an advanced multi-engine trainer and even as a special mission aerial sensor platform.
