First US Twin Star Delivered

Diamond’s first US delivery of its exciting new DA42 Twin Star was made Friday at AOPA Expo, to Mr. Henry Van Kesteren of St. Petersburg, Florida.

The aircraft was delivered by Mike Bayne of Mid Atlantic Diamond and Art Spengler of Premier Aircraft Sales.

“I wanted the aircraft for its cutting edge technology,” said Mr. Van Kesteren, who has accumulated over 38,000 hours flying since joining the US Army Air Corps in 1942.

“This really changes everything,” said Peter Maurer, President of Diamond Aircraft. “The Twin Star represents an absolute quantum leap, with its modern all carbon airframe, Garmin G1000 and TAE 1.7 Centurion turbo diesel engines. With twin engines, known ice certification and single lever throttles, the DA42 sets new standards with regard to safety and ease of operation.”
