Diamond Air’s DA42 Saved From Chopping Block

The Diamond DA42 has been rescued and will continue production as the DA42 NG.

Fans of the sporty Diamond DA42 light twin-engine aircraft thought the plane was a goner when its engine supplier Thielert went belly up last year. After suspending production the Canadian company lined up a new powerplant supplier, Austro, and the revitalized version, now dubbed the DA42 NG, has not only returned to production but scored a big hit at the recent Paris Air Show. The first Austro-powered DA42 was recently delivered to a customer right here in Sweden, and US customers are itching to get their hands on ‘em as the aircraft awaits FAA certification. – from James List
