Phoenix East Aviation orders DA42 NG aircraft
Nov. 12, 2010, Daytona Beach, FL - Diamond Aircraft is pleased to announce that Phoenix East Aviation, Inc. of Daytona Beach, Florida, has selected the DA42 NG for its multi-engine training fleet.
With an initial order of two DA42 NGs, Phoenix East Aviation also plans to upgrade their existing DA42 TDIs with Austro Engine AE 300 powerplants and will eventually migrate their entire multi-engine fleet to the DA42 NG. Ghassan Reslan, CEO of Phoenix East, will accept delivery of their first DA42 NG this week at AOPA Summit.
“The Diamond DA42 NG offers our students, who are pursuing professional pilot careers, the most advanced multi-engine training platform in the industry,” said Mr. Reslan. “With the DA42 NG's state-of-the-art engines, airframe, and avionics technologies, our students will be well prepared for careers as jet pilots.”
With an all-carbon airframe and FADEC controlled, single power lever, twin turbo-diesel Austro AE 300 engines, along with the Garmin G1000 integrated glass cockpit including the GFC 700 Automated Flight Control System and Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT), the DA42 NG is general aviation's safest and most technologically advanced light twin.
“With the introduction of the DA42 NG, Diamond Aircraft is pleased to expand its relationship with Phoenix East Aviation,” said David Moser, Director of Fleet Sales for Diamond Aircraft. “With unprecedented fuel economy, stellar performance, and exceptional reliability, we are confident that Phoenix East will be thrilled with their selection of the DA42 NG.”
