Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University Flight Line in Prescott will take delivery of four DA42 NG twin-engine aircraft before the new school year. The new DA42s will be used as multi-engine trainers for new flight students starting in August.
“We selected the Diamond DA42 NG after evaluating all the light twin engine aircraft on the market,” said William O'Hara, Interim Director and of Flight Operations at Embry-Riddle Prescott. “The DA42 NG provides us with an exceptionally safe and fuel-efficient multi-engine training platform with the latest in engine, avionics and airframe technologies. And, the AE300 turbo-diesel is perfect for our high altitude training environment.”
The DA42 NG incorporates an all-carbon fiber airframe with FADEC, twin turbo-diesel AE300 engines from Austro Engine, and the latest avionics from Garmin, including the G1000 integrated glass cockpit with GFC 700 automated flight control system and Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT).
