Diamonfd Aircraft asks... "What’s better than the fuel
efficient DA40 XL?"
Well, the answer appears to be a fuel efficient DA40 XL with 35
free tanks of gas! For a limited time, DA40 XL buyers can benefit
from a first year fuel credit of up to $7,500. To participate,
customers need to take delivery of a new DA40 XL between July 15
and September 30th 2007, from a participating Diamond Regional
“The DA40 XL is one of the most fuel-efficient airplanes
in the market. With $7,500 in free gas, you can theoretically fly
once around the world at the equator – all 24,902 miles of
it,” explains Heike Larson, Vice President of Sales and
“Realistically, of course, our buyers will use their free
gas for other goals – say, an instrument rating, or several
long vacation or business trips.
Wherever they may go, they will be able to get to their goal
affordably – even once the fuel credit is used up: with a low
10 gph fuel burn at 150 kts, the DA40 XL flies over 700 nm on $200
of gas, even at today’s gas price of $4.20 per
Fuel efficiency and maintenance-friendly design, plus low
insurance rates due to Diamond’s excellent safety record make
the DA40 XL an affordable flying platform. Pleasing to the pocket
book and the senses, the DA40 XL comes loaded with top-of-the-line
avionics, including the G1000 cockpit with the GFC 700 digital
autopilot, traffic, weather and terrain.
It offers everything pilots need for the ultimate in-flight
“Our customers have already shown a great deal of interest
in this program,” explained Fred Ahles, President of Premier
Aircraft Sales, the largest Diamond Distributor in the US.
“Since the offer is only available on aircraft in current
inventory, we are advising our prospective DA40 XL buyers not to
wait. I don't see our current stock lasting until the September 30
