DA40 NG tours Australian East Coast

Australian Diamond distributor Utility Air has wasted no time in planning a demonstration tour after the Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria borders were re-opened. The company will tour their DA40 NG diesel demonstrator in all three states in early December 2020.

Utility Air Director John Oppenheim said they believed the time was perfect for people to recommence investing in general aviation. “After the slowdown in flying and events caused by Covid 19, we are excited to be able to invest in the future of aviation in the region again," he said. "Bringing this aircraft to our marketplace shows a commitment not just to Diamond Aircraft but also to all our owners and prospective customers in Australia and New Zealand."

Utility Managing Director, Stephen Pembro was effusive about the aircraft and the built-in technology. “This aircraft represents the future," he said of the diesel-powered four-seater. "We’ve been selling them steadily now for over a year and Diamond is currently the Number 2 manufacturer of light aircraft in the world. Bringing a cutting edge DA40 NG into the country for demonstrations, which burns only 19.5 liters of Jet A1 per hour and has state of the art avionics, will help further cement Diamond as a favorite in our region. I can’t wait to show the aircraft off.”
