DIAMOND LAUNCHES A FAMILY OF DA50 MODELS

In early April, 10 years after the first Diamond DA50 made its public debut, the latest version of the airplane was introduced. The DA50-V will be a five-seat model slotted in the middle of the DA50 series, which will also include the four-seat DA50-IV and seven-seat DA50-VII.

With the slogan “Be Unique,” the exterior of the DA50s will be fully customizable. The first DA50-V has a bold, gold-and-black paint scheme covering its sleek composite fuselage.
