The definition of perfection
Introducing to you latest version of DA42. The DA42 is powered by the Austro Engine 168hp AE300 with a single power lever control. The 3 blade MT hydraulic constant speed propellers feature advanced blade geometry for efficient performance, smoothness and low noise. Automatically controlled by each engine’s digital engine control – feathering is as simple as flipping a single switch. The fully integrated, ultra-precise GFC700 Automatic Flight Control System as well as Garmin G1000 NXi is complemented by a long list of avionics options – such as an integrated weather radar and Traffic Advisories – that perfectly suit our mission. This aircraft perfectly suites for school.
The DA42-VI is wonderful. She does everything you promised. TAS 175-180 with a fuel burn of 13 gph total at altitude. Climbs like a rocket through the ice layer, 1350 fpm and still 1100-1200 at altitude. Radar is great. Use it a lot. Data link is great. Weather and sending emails and SMS at altitude. I don’t think there is any other piston twin that comes close price/performance-wise. For those of us who don’t want to spend what it takes to fly a turboprop, the DA42-VI is the perfect airplane. Just flew to Oxford England this afternoon. The flight deck was busy. All the tools came into play. What a dream machine!
