French company SD Aviation, based in La Roche Sur Yon, has taken delivery of its second jetfuel-powered Diamond DA62. The aircraft will form part of SD Aviation's shared aircraft ownership programme, and SD is the first Diamond customer using this aircraft for transportation purposes.
Sébastien Dubreuil, CEO, comments: “We are very happy with this DA62 and our members will be too. With the state-of-the-art technology, more space, more seats and really great comfort with five people on board, the DA62 also has a great cruising speed compared to the DA42-VI with just a little more fuel consumption. We have been waiting a long time for such an aircraft that enables us to grow our business. We plan to enter a third by the end of the year and hope to order more in the near future.”
Flight Calibration Services in the UK also took delivery of a DA62 recently; the aircraft is the first of its kind to operate in the UK.
