Diamond Aircraft DA50 RG receives EASA Certification
Diamond Aircraft proudly announces EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) certification for its exciting new DA50 RG single engine piston with retractable gear. This achievement marks a significant milestone in Diamond’s history as well as for the General Aviation community and paves the way for initial EASA customer deliveries in Q1/2021.
General Aviation’s new first class piston single impresses with retractable gear, double slotted flaps for high lift and superior slow speed behavior, remarkable handling and flight characteristics, a spacious true 5-seat luxury cabin with a generous rear baggage compartment, Diamond’s well-known safety features, striking ramp appeal and an environmentally conscious and fuel-efficient jet-fuel engine. Perfectly suited for single engine pilots looking for more seats and utility, as well as charter operators and corporate flight departments wanting to complement their larger aircraft with a low cost alternative for shorter trips.
“We are extremely proud to have received EASA type certification for our single engine flagship, the DA50 RG. The Diamond Aircraft team has done a tremendous job to make this possible,” said Liqun (Frank) Zhang, CEO at Diamond Aircraft Austria. “With the DA50 RG we are introducing an innovative 21st-century retract single that we are convinced the market is missing. Bringing the aircraft to the market is a great accomplishment that we are very pleased to celebrate with our Diamond Aircraft Family and the aviation community all over the world. We are simply overwhelmed by the huge interest, the number of inquiries and feedback we have been receiving for this game changer since the launch in June. We are looking forward to welcoming many proud DA50 RG pilots over the coming months and years.”
