The initial delivery of six Diamond DA20-C1 Falcon aircraft to Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University for use at the U.S. Air Force Academy took place at the Diamond Aircraft factory in London, Ontario last week.
Utilizing 35 DA20-C1 Falcon aircraft, Embry-Riddle will train as many as 500 Air Force Cadets annually at the Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The DA20-C1 Falcon, named in honor of the U.S. Air Force Academy mascot, is a custom version of Diamond's standard two-seater.
The delivery included week long training courses for both maintenance and flight personnel. The training for the flying personnel consisted of comprehensive systems training as well as flight training in the aircraft.
