Diamond Relaunches DA20-C1

Equipped With Greatly Upgraded Instrument Panel

One of our favorite training birds is back... and upgraded, to boot! The high demand for single engine training aircraft has led to the return to production of the Diamond DA20-C1, powered by a 125HP Continental IO-240 engine and equipped with new state-of-the-art G500TXi Avionics. With over 1,000 DA20’s already operating worldwide, the strong desire for lower cost new single engine aircraft in training environments continues. The DA20 is proven to be the safest and most efficient aircraft for primary training, and fleet operators are raving about its return to production. “We are excited to re-introduce the brand new DA20-C1,” says Scott McFadzean, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc., “Our innovative DNA is of course incorporated into the new aircraft, which showcases the latest Garmin avionics.”

EAA Chapters To Host Sessions As ‘Next Step’ After Young Eagles Flights

EAA chapters now have an additional “next step” activity following Young Eagles flights, as EAA is introducing a Young Eagles Workshops program available to all chapters as a follow-on way to engage young people. The Young Eagles Workshops program offers youth, generally 11 to 17 years old, the opportunity to discover more about aviation in a social setting at a local airport. These sessions, either single-day or multiple-day, are geared toward introducing kids to the basic elements of airplanes and aviation. “EAA continues to build its offerings for young people as ways to introduce and engage them in aviation, as there are so many possibilities for discovery and achievement through the world of flight,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programming, which includes the organization‘s youth initiatives.

Take A Deep Breath... GAMA Releases Brutal 2Q/20 A/C Shipment/Billing Report

Not Much Good News As The Aero-Verse Works Its Way Through The Pandemic And All Its Effects

During those months, while the global aerospace supply chain was significantly degraded and national, state and local pandemic restrictions changed routinely on both sides of the Atlantic, many companies supplemented their activities to support the health care response with the manufacture and distribution of personal protective equipment..."
