Advanced Twin Technology
The DA42-VI is easy to fly and burns fuel like a single, but with the added safety of a second engine. Impressive cross-country performance pleases private pilots and business owners alike, while the low operating costs make it an ideal advanced trainer. No wonder it’s the best selling piston twin, by far..
Go where singles fear to tread
Imagine this: It’s dark. You’re in the mountains. You’re picking up ice. Your intended destination just closed. It’s times like this that you’re grateful to have the added security of a second engine, flight into known icing certification and incredible endurance. All critical safety features when turning back is not an option. The peace of mind that comes with the Garmin G1000 NXi glass cockpit, GFC700 autopilot, EECU controlled turbo-diesel engines, and a tough composite airframe, is just part of a long list of standard features.
Don’t worry about high cost maintenance, fuelling and single engine operations:
Our DA42-VI equipped with Jet fuel engines offer you extreme fuel efficiency (consumption at 60% 10.4 US gal/hr), take you further (range at 60% 1,200 nm), are fuelled with lower priced Jet-A1 (average relation from Jet-A1 to Avgas 1:2) and have tremendously lower maintenance expenses than conventional gasoline engines.
With traditional twins, single-engine operations were their Achilles heel. Feathering an engine in the ultra-modern DA42-VI is as easy as flipping a switch, and restarting it after a simulated shut down is just as simple. With a single-engine ceiling of 18,000 feet and a positive rate of climb with one engine inoperative, the aircraft is supreme on the performance front, too.
