WHY DIAMOND. A Family Business. A Global Company.

Developing and building a family of aircraft takes a long-term commitment and an unwavering vision - it's not for the faint of heart. Diamond not only has the vision and resources, but an owner who embodies the spirit of innovation.

With the passion of an accomplished pilot, and the vision of a successful entrepreneur, Christian Dries has led Diamond Aircraft's growth from building only a single motorglider to offering general aviation's most innovative and diverse family of personal and business aircraft. The growth of the Diamond Aircraft family exemplifies his personal commitment to delivering aircraft that pilots want.

  • "Our Vision: revolutionize general aviation. Our Goal: set the highest standards possible in aircraft production and development. Our Promise: combine the most progressive materials and technology to deliver highly reliable, economic aircraft that are less damaging to the environment while never sacrificing performance, safety or beauty."
