COMMITMENT TO SAFETY. Industry-Leading Safety Record.
- "As a company, Diamond has one of the most remarkable safety records in all of light aircraft general aviation. [...] In our last in-depth review of accident trends in our September 2006 issue [...] Diamond's fatal average was a remarkable 0.16/100,000 flight hours, compared to 1.2/100,000 for the GA fleet. [...] Over the years, we have noticed that Diamond airplanes show little tendency toward post-crash fires. In fact, we haven't been able to find any significant fires in Diamond airplanes, which we find to be a remarkable record due in part to the airplane's design. [..] We think Diamond can rightly claim the best safety record in light aircraft GA."
