How we build Diamonds
When it comes to safety, positive results are what really matter most. Diamond has earned a safety record, backed by real world data, that is second to none.
Our primary design goal is to build aircraft that are a pleasure to fly, yet forgiving and safe, while offering maximum protection in case of an accident. To accomplish this, we invest in two key safety strategies, Active and Passive Safety.
Innovative thinking is about breaking down mental barriers and exploring ideas in an environment with brilliant minds. The Diamond Group is driven by passion and curiosity towards innovation and progress.
As a result, we are constantly involved in exciting research projects which, often contribute to the social and green environment.
