Diamond Aircraft delivers three DA42 MPP to the Royal Thai Air Force to complete a more than thirty-unit aircraft program

Diamond Aircraft and its distributor Asian Aerospace Services announces the successful delivery of three (3) DA42 MPP (Multi Purpose Platform) reconnaissance aircraft to the Royal Thai Air Force (RTAF) in Thailand.

The RTAF has placed orders for more than thirty (30) aircraft for multiple applications since 2008. Their newest three DA42 MPP, which will be added to the surveillance and reconnaissance fleet at wing 402, are equipped with high-end sensor technology to support the country in fast collecting environmental data used for disaster relief and monitoring, generation of flood models, surveillance of terrain as well as change-detection and other applications. The aircraft are in a changeable configuration and ready to be used also with existing surveillance and reconnaissance mission systems. The latest three DA42 MPP were delivered with an extensive package of ground processing stations, spare parts, trainings and a purchase and development program.

Over the last 12 years, Royal Thai Airforce has proven that the DA42 MPP concept is the most efficient and reliable concept available on the market. Together, Diamond Aircraft and the RTAF have implemented a selection of various sensors.

“Diamond Aircraft is honoured to deliver once again DA42 MPP aircraft to the RTAF. This is one of the greatest success stories for the Diamond Aircraft Special Mission Aircraft division. Together with our sales and service partner Asian Aerospace Services, we again proved that dedication and hard work pays off. The cooperation with the RTAF has been a great pleasure and we’re looking forward to continuing to support them and to future projects,” said Benjamin Schuhmann, Sales Manager APAC & ME Diamond Aircraft Austria Special Mission Aircraft Division.
