Capable and safe
Whether you are a new pilot looking for the perfect first aircraft, an experienced aviator with discerning tastes or a flight school of a high quality standard, buying a DA40 New Generation is always a smart decision. The modern and safe composite aircraft with advanced avionics and the sophisticated Austro Engine 168 hp AE300 jet fuel engine running on Jet-A1 is an exceptional IFR (Instrumental Flight Rules) platform, both for training and travelling. You'll be impressed by its excellent flight characteristics, remarkable fuel-efficiency and the stunning panoramic visibility out of the canopy.
Unmatched safety record
The DA40's industry-leading safety record is the result of Diamond's commitment to protecting occupants with a vast array of both active and passive safety features. Active safety features include stable handling at low speeds, short take-off and landing distances, superior visibility and state-of-the-art avionics. Passive safety features such as aluminum fuel cells protected by the DA40's dual carbon fiber spars, help prevent post impact fires, a 26G rated safety cell cockpit and a host of other built in features help keep you safe should the unexpected happen. As a result, the DA40 line tops the general aviation list with both the lowest overall and fatal rates (Source: Aviation Consumer January 2012).
