Diamond Aircraft announces name change for DA52

Diamond Aircraft has decided to rename the DA52 to DA62. The DA62 series is Diamond's newest twin engine product line, complementing the successful DA20, DA40 and DA42 series.

“We are renaming the DA52 to improve differentiation from our DA42 series that continues indefinitely in parallel production,” said Christian Dries, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH. “The DA62 series is designed with significant growth potential and continues the upward expansion of Diamond's piston aircraft offerings. It will compete well with conventional 6 seat single and twin engine piston aircraft and offers a great step-up alternative to owners of high performance 4 and 5 seat singles seeking more space and capability without sacrificing operating economics.”

The DA62 series builds on the strengths of the world's bestselling twin piston aircraft, the DA42, with increased performance, payload, cabin volume and utility.

As with each of Diamond's aircraft lines that have evolved into several distinct models to suit specific market requirements, the DA62 will be offered with optional configurations, including seating capacities of up to 7 seats, and several MTOW versions of up to 2,300 kg.

The DA62 series will be powered by a growth version of Austro Engine's popular AE300 jet fuel piston engine series.

Currently there are two prototypes flying and EASA type certification is expected in 2015. Pricing and availability will be announced in future.
