Diamond Aircraft Sells Eight DA42-VI Aircraft To FTEJerez

First Two Deliveries Expected Before Year's End

Diamond Aircraft and FTEJerez announced a firm order for eight DA42 and two DA42 FNPT2 simulators to expand their current fleet. The order, awarded following tough competition that took place over the last year and announced at the Farnborough Air Show, carries a list-price value of $7.3 million, and reflects the strength of this Flight Training Organization in difficult times.

Powered by highly reliable and environmentally friendly Austro Engine Diesel engines, the new Diamond DA42-VI twin engine aircraft can be fuelled with all available Jet Fuel Types. The modern, composite four-seat aircraft is equipped with a Garmin G1000 glass cockpit including GFC700 Automatic Flight Control System which are all air-conditioned to enhance the overall quality of training.
 
The first two Diamond DA 42-VI expected to arrive at FTEJerez before year-end with further deliveries expected in 2013. Two state-of-the-art new generation Diamond Simulation FNPTII flight training devices will complement the acquisition of the new aircraft.
 
"FTE has, for many years, been training pilots for some of the world’s leading airlines," said Oscar Sordo, CEO of FTEJerez. "We are committed to continue delivering the best future captains to the industry, and to do this we need to use be best equipment. The acquisition of the latest state-of-the-art flight and simulation equipment makes good sense. The transition to a modern airline cockpit will be much easier from these glass cockpit equipped aircraft and the latest safety features that they offer."
 
"We are honoured to be awarded with this contract from FTE Jerez, as it shows that the Diamond Flight Training Concept meets the latest industry standards in question of Aircraft and Simulator Technology for airline oriented pilot training institution," said Christian Dries, Chairman and CEO of Diamond Aircraft.
