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. It is powered by a turbocharged, jet-fueled 260 hp Safran/SMA diesel engine, which should provide the airplane with an impressive range, in excess of 1,000 nm, as it burns only 6.8 gph at 50 percent power. At higher power settings Diamond says the airplane has reached speeds up to 173 ktas.
