“Our transfer to a DA20 aircraft fleet developed into a total win-win situation for us. Things like reliable performance, modern technology and economic feasibility - when it comes to operation and maintenance - made the DA20 the best choice for our flight school.”

Peter Schmidt, Flight School 'Try to fly', Austria
