Diamond Aircraft wins Flying Magazine’s 2009 Editors’ Choice Award

“For not one but two great new airplanes and for one of the most remarkable recoveries in general aviation, we award Diamond a 2009 Flying Editors’ Choice Award for its DA42 L360 and DA42 NG piston twins,” states Flying magazine in their March 2010 issue. Developed from Diamond’s turbo-diesel powered DA42 TDI, the innovative twins feature proven, yet state of the art all carbon composite airframes, the industry standard Garmin G1000 flightdeck, and a choice of 180 hp Lycoming IO-360 engines, or Diamond’s proprietary Austro Engine AE 300 jet fuel burning turbo-diesel powerplants. With over 600 airframes delivered since 2005, the DA42 is the world’s best selling twin, enjoying popularity as a capable personal airplane, an advanced multi-engine trainer and even as a special mission aerial sensor platform. The award winning DA42 has also garnered high praise from Flight International Magazine (Aerospace Industry Award 2003), Robb Report (Best of the Best 2004), Popular Science (Top 100 Technology Innovations 2004), Aviation Consumer (Airplane of the Year 2006), Aero-News Network (Airplane of the Year 2006), Flying Magazine (Editors’ Choice 2006) and Aero-News Network (Plane of the Year 2009).
