The German Design Awards are the premium award of the German Design Council. With its worldwide spectrum and international appeal, it is one of the most prestigious awards in the design landscape across all industries. Since 2012, the German Design Awards have been identifying significant design trends, presenting them to a broad public and honouring them. Every year, extraordinary submissions in product design, communication design and architecture are honoured.
The »Winner« distinction of the German Design Awards pays tribute to outstanding and commendably realised design work in the context of a specific category. In each category, an appropriate number of design submissions is awarded the distinction of »Winner«. These are selected by a separate expert jury in each category of the German Design Awards.
The German Design Award jury stated: “The single-engine »DA50 RG« light aircraft sets standards in this segment in terms of performance, functionality, efficiency and luxury comfort. At the same time, it impresses with a striking design language that makes it unmistakable.”
“We are thrilled to have been granted the German Design Award Winner 2023 for our unparalleled DA50 RG and are overwhelmed by the number of accolades the DA50 RG has received. This is one great early Christmas present for the entire Diamond Aircraft Family,” said Liqun (Frank) Zhang, CEO Diamond Aircraft Industries. “Since introduction this aircraft has sparked so much interest all over the world and everyone who flies it is excited about the comfortable roomy cabin, the superb workmanship and the fantastic flight characteristics.”
“This success would not be possible without a great team of highly passionate and experienced staff. I want to thank all of you - you have been doing an outstanding job every day - this award is dedicated to you!” he added.
The DA50 RG powered by the FADEC controlled 300hp Continental CD-300 jet-fuel engine features retractable gear and boasts one of the largest luxury cabins in its class.
