Australian Diamond distributor Utility Air has wasted no time in planning a demonstration tour after the QLD/NSW and NSW/VIC borders were re-opened.
The company announced today that they would tour their DA40 NG diesel demonstrator in all three states in early December.
Utility Air Director John Oppenheim said they believed the time was perfect for people to recommence investing in general aviation.
“After the slowdown in flying and events caused by Covid 19, we are excited to be able to invest in the future of aviation in the region again," he said. "Bringing this aircraft to our marketplace shows a commitment not just to Diamond Aircraft but also to all our owners and prospective customers in Australia and New Zealand.
"It is only through investment in the growth of aviation and marketing that we’ll get back to where we all want to be …flying.”
Utility Managing Director, Stephen Pembro was effusive about the aircraft and the built-in technology.
“This aircraft represents the future," he said of the diesel-powered four-seater. "We’ve been selling them steadily now for over a year and Diamond is currently the Number 2 manufacturer of light aircraft in the world.
"Bringing a cutting edge DA40 NG into the country for demonstrations, which burns only 19.5 liters of Jet A1 per hour and has state of the art avionics, will help further cement Diamond as a favorite in our region.
"I can’t wait to show the aircraft off.”
Pembro stressed that the tour program would need to be flexible given the weather and compressed schedule, and suggested contact Utility Air to register their interest.
The timing of the tour is critical, given that prices of the aircraft are set to rise in the new year, giving Utility the opportunity to offer the aircraft at 2020 prices.
