Equipped with the newest technology, this will support QinetiQ’s delivery of training and reconnaissance missions, thanks to an exceptional period of time that the aircraft will be able to spend in the air.
Volker Wallrodt, Managing Director QinetiQ GmbH said, “We have signed the contract with Diamond Aircraft for the purchase of 2 DA62 MPP aircraft to expand the capabilities of our fleet and further develop our aerial services for the benefit of our customers.”
“We are very pleased and excited about QinetiQ’s decision to add the powerful and cost-efficient DA62 MPP to their fleet of aircraft,” said Mario Spiegel, Sales Manager Special Mission Aircraft Division Diamond Aircraft Austria. “This underlines again the leading position of Diamond’s Special Mission Aircraft within the industry. The combination of most modern avionics, efficient and quiet jet fuel engines, easy handling, a spacious cabin, multi-sensor capability as well as the ability to fly missions of up to eight hours will enable QinetiQ to reach new heights in their business.”
The DA62 MPP is the latest variant of Diamond Aircraft’s successful Special Mission Aircraft portfolio. The all-carbon-fibre, twin-engine aircraft is equipped with a state-of-the-art glass cockpit and a fully integrated autopilot. It is powered by two turbo charged jet-fuel engines which enable the aircraft to stay airborne for up to eight hours due to their superb fuel efficiency. The carbon fibre material provides for unlimited airframe life and is not subject to corrosion, even when operated in saline and humid environments. Together, fuel efficiency and the unlimited airframe life combine for extremely low direct operating costs, making the DA62 MPP the most cost-efficient Special Mission Aircraft in its class.
