Diamond Aircraft introduces 5 seat single DA50-V at AERO Friedrichshafen

The DA50-V prototype, with a striking color design, made its public debut at the AERO Friedrichshafen 2017 just two weeks after its maiden flight. It will be the most modern, most efficient single-engine piston aircraft with the widest body and highest payload in its class.

Christian Dries, CEO and Owner Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH (Austria): "The DA50-V sets the benchmark in luxury, comfort and economy in General Aviation. It's the perfect aircraft for the demanding pilot who wants to go far without cargo restrictions."

The all carbon fibre DA50-V is powered by a 260hp jetfuel engine from SAFRAN/SMA burning just 6.8 US gal (25.8 liter) per hour at 50% and has a maximum operating altitude of 20,000 ft (6,096 m). During test flights, the aircraft reached a maximum speed of 173 kts TAS (320 km/h TAS) and a maximum range of 1,020 nm (1,890 km). Maximum take-off weight of the DA50-V prototype is 3,968 lbs (1,800 kg) offering a payload of 1,256 lbs (570 kg).

With the wide, most comfortable and luxurious cabin, excellent payload, exceptionally low fuel burn and a standard installed Garmin G1000 NXi with GFC700 autopilot it will please private pilots, flight-training organizations and air charter companies alike.

Optional customized painting offers customers the possibility to stand out of the crowd with their very own colors and design. The eye-catching DA50-V shown at AERO Friedrichshafen is designed and airbrush painted by one of the top European airbrush designers, Knud Tiroch. Famous for his artwork for the Formula1 cars of the team Toro Rosso.

The DA50 will be available in three different variants: the four-seat 230hp DA50-IV, the five-seat 260hp DA50-V, and the seven-seat DA50-VII with several engines. Certification and start of serial production for the four and five seat model is expected in 2018 and the seven seat version soon thereafter.
