D-JET wins Popular Science Best of What’s New Award

Diamond Aircraft’s new single engine D-JET has received the 2006 Best of What’s New Award from Popular Science magazine in the Aviation and Space category.

Creating a new market segment in personal aviation, the D-JET is a 5-place luxury personal jet offering practical performance, low cost, and high safety and comfort. While most VLJs (very light jets) are essentially miniaturized business jets with the expense, criticality, complexity and weight of operation at high altitudes, the D-JET, with an operating altitude of 25,000’ is optimized for efficiency, system and structural simplicity, and insurability more appropriate for most private pilots.

"Best of What’s New" is the ultimate Popular Science accolade, representing a year’s worth work evaluating thousands of products, "says Mark Jannot, editor of Popular Science. "These awards honor innovations that not only influence the way we live today, but that change the way we think about the future."
