Attractive. Affordable. Classic.
The start of something great: the HK36 touring motor glider laid the foundation of Diamond Aircraft’s aviation changing history. Beloved and flown around the world - the HK36 Super Dimona, also known as Katana X-treme in the USA and Canada, is the ultimate two-seated motor glider made of fiber-reinforced high-tech composite. Equipped with Rotax engines with either 100 hp or 115 hp (in the turbo-charged variant), the Super Dimona is perfect for glider pilot training and towing or just fun to fly. In the 1990s the aircraft quickly became a top seller in Europe with over 900 sold aircraft.
“Well, our club decided to get the HK36 TTC because it's a very unproblematic and trouble-free aircraft - though flying over 300 hours per year!
We use the HK36 TTC for pilot training, vacation traveling and of course for aerotowing. Our pilots love the reliablenessand the easy handling of the HK36. However, many PPL pilots are using the HK36 too, because the maintenance cost are very low.
We can also use the HK36 for save towing operations on our 501m long runway (grass pavers). For all those reasons it' s absolutely clear to us - we made the right choice.
