Diamond’s Twin Resurrected

  • Mary Grady

Diamond Aircraft’s perky little four-seat twin-engine airplane drew a lot of positive attention when it hit the market a few years ago, but the new-technology Thielert diesel engines proved expensive and difficult to maintain. Thielert ended up in bankruptcy, and sales of the airplanes were suspended. Now Diamond has reintroduced the DA42 with a choice of two engines—its own new Austro diesel or a tried-and-true Lycoming IO-360 that runs on standard aviation gas. Both models are now fully certified and ready to deliver. The Lycoming sells for $599,500; North American pricing for the Austro is not yet set. (519.457.4000, www.diamondaircraft.com)
