Diamond Aircraft celebrates DA50 RG FAA certification and first U.S. customer delivery

Diamond Aircraft proudly announces FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) certification for its exciting new DA50 RG single engine piston with retractable gear, clearing the way for U.S. customer deliveries and the delivery to the first DA50 RG U.S. customer at EAA AirVenture 2023, Oshkosh.

On July 25th Diamond Aircraft received DA50 RG FAA validated type certificate at its booth at EAA AirVenture during a tour with FAA members organized and supported by the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA), led by GAMA President Pete Bunce. Mrs. Lirio Liu, Executive Director of the FAA’s Aircraft Certification Service, personally handed over the certificate to Diamond Aircraft’s management team.

“What an amazing day! Our revolutionary DA50 RG is getting overwhelming high praise from everyone that flies it. Its combination of cabin size, utility, performance and efficiency paired with environmentally friendly jet fuel engines make it an ideal aircraft for the U.S. market,” said Liqun (Frank) Zhang, CEO Diamond Aircraft Group & CEO Diamond Aircraft Austria. “We have been eagerly waiting for this next milestone and are extremely proud to be offering this great aircraft, alongside our popular singles and twins. We’d also like to congratulate Continental Aerospace Technology on receiving FAA certification for the CD-300 jet fuel engine, powering our fantastic DA50 RG.”

Diamond Aircraft is now working on delivering all DA50 RG aircraft, which have already been ordered by many U.S. customers with the celebration of the first U.S. delivery on the day of FAA certification receipt. Diamond Aircraft, and one of its U.S. dealers, Premier Aircraft Sales, celebrated today’s Diamond DA50 RG delivery to the first U.S. customer, Mr. Jordan Cram.

“The DA50 RG is a perfect match for sustainability, performance, and design requirements,” Jordan Cram said. “The excellent fuel economy combined with jet fuel made me feel better about carbon impact, and the balance of function and form is just unparalleled. We’re going to be up in the air a lot."

“This is truly an amazing day. We are here to not only celebrate the Diamond DA50 RG receiving FAA certification but also the delivery to Mr. Cram,” Kevin Sheng, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Canada, said. “We are truly fortunate to be able to share this with all of our friends here at Oshkosh, AirVenture 2023, and we are so proud that Mr. Cram has joined the Diamond Aircraft family. We know he will love the performance, comfort, economy, and safety that his new DA50 RG will provide.”

Since May, the DA50 RG has been touring the USA, to let as many pilots as possible experience the simplicity of operation, impressive cabin volume, extraordinary fuel efficiency and performance of this unique aircraft. The tour will continue until end of September.
