Listen to the industry

Listen to experts of internationally recognized flight training academies, why they decided to use Diamond training aircraft in their fleet.


The Diamond Aircraft training platform of the future

Our unique strength: aircraft, engine and simulators from a single manufacturer. We offer the most complete, most modern fleet of diesel piston aircraft with the best flight training performance characteristics and safety record in the industry.

Our training concept offers flight training packages for flight schools including:

  • Our entire range of aircraft (DA42-VI, DA40 NG/DA40 Tundra Star, DA20 Katana/DA20-C1 Eclipse)
  • Our proprietary flight simulators either DA42-VI, DA40 NG or convertible DA42/DA40
  • Fuel-saving state-of-the-art engines AE300 from Austro-Engine operated with Jet Fuel, with EECU (Electronic Engine Control Unit) and single lever control
  • Corresponding maintenance (EASA part 147) and pilot training in our own TRTO (Type Rating Training Organization)  

This enables us to offer significant advantages for ab-initio training of commercial and general aviation pilots.

Ask any successful commercial operator and they will tell you that fleet commonality is your key to success. Diamond Aircraft offers all the advantages of fleet commonality including minimized instructor standardization, rapid student transition, reduced parts inventories and maintenance training.

Our Advanced Airline Training package

The transition of pilots from trainer aircraft cockpits to the modern airline environment has always been a training challenge. Diamond’s DA42 and DA40, both equipped with glass cockpits, have brought the opportunity to introduce contemporary computerized avionics from the beginning of airline pilot training.
We have carefully analyzed the training requirements of future airline pilots as well as the operational needs of flight training organizations delivering high quality training. This was done with the goal to get new pilots “airline ready” before their first type-rating on a transport category aircraft and the subsequent initial operating experience.
We have come up with a set of key improvements and modifications as well as with a variety of options contained in the Advanced Airline Training (AAT) package. This package enables you to implement airline procedures and the respective operational realism from the very beginning of your training program.
Student pilots are enabled to develop the right psychomotor, cognitive, strategic and tactical skills which can then be easily transferred into the cockpit of an airliner.

Commitment to Safety. Industry-leading safety record.

Like the world‘s best automotive companies, we believe that avoiding an accident is the best defence - this is Active Safety. Passive safety features protect you should the unexpected happen.

Passive Safety

  • a safety cell cabin
  • unobstructed headstrike zones
  • protected fuel systems

Damage Tolerance

This means that during certification testing, known defects were created in structural parts to show that even with severe damage, the parts could still carry design loads.

Failsafe Design

Critical structures and joints, including control surface hinges, are designed such that the complete failure of a single element will still allow safe flight. That‘s why the DA40 and DA42 feature dual redundant spars in the wings and tail surfaces, and dual connections for all critical joints.

Occupant Protection

  • energy absorbing seats - up to 26 g impact protection
  • airbag seatbelts - further energy absorption to minimize injury
  • „antisubmarine“ seats - seat geometry keeps occupants from sliding under lapbelt
  • unobstructed headstrike zone - no sharp edges or obstructions in the area where head injury might occur
  • Diamond conducts full scale impact testing with instrumented Crash Test Dummies

Fuel System Protection

The Diamond Aircraft DA20, with its aluminum aft fuselage mounted fuel tank is designed to protect the fuel as well as it protects the occupants (this is current state of the art in automotive applications). The dual spar design and aluminum fuel cells of the aircraft types DA40 and DA42 protect the fuel like no other airplane that carries fuel in the wing. Many airplanes carry fuel directly behind the leading edge skin of the wing - the implications of an impact in that area are obvious!

Active Safety

  • unparalleled visibility
  • agile yet forgiving flight characteristics
  • superb runway performance
  • high crosswind capability
  • system and structural redundancy
  • the latest in avionics technology
