Four seat versatility
The things that makes DA40 NG totally unique is the Austro AE 300 turbocharged common-rail injected 2.0 liter diesel engine with 168 hp controled by full authority digital engine unit, that provides amazing economy, power and performance. The DA40 is fully integrated with G1000 NXi flight deck, incorporating the latest features of GFC700 Automatic Flight Control System. In addition to that, aircraft is equipted with Traffic Advisories, that provides extra convenience and high standard safety.
Taking delivery of a brand new DA40 NG was a dream come true. I have been the happy owner of a DA42 and had long wanted to add a sister single engine plane alongside the twin (for my owner-run rental business). I took the plunge and ordered the DA40 NG. She is beautifully designed and has a character that shows through as you warm her up, playfully waiting to launch herself into the world. This plane soars rather than just takes off. In her short time in the UK, she has been all over Europe, including down as far as Portugal, and has won many fans.
