Flight Calibration Services (FCSL), a UK-based flight inspection service provider, has signed a firm order for a second Diamond DA62, just one month after delivery of its first unit. This first unit was the first of its type in the UK.

Director Matt Taiyeb says: “We are delighted to place an order for a second DA62. We have experienced remarkable growth over the last few years, in excess of 30 per cent a year. The DA62 will help support this growth while reducing operational costs and environmental impact.

“In combination with our recently developed flight inspection system, the DA62 has the performance and payload we require to further optimise the delivery of flight inspection and calibration services, for airfield navigation aids, to airports worldwide. Add to this lower fuel burn, reduced emissions and reduced noise, and the DA62 is a great example of how FCSL is working to minimise the impact of its operations on the environment.”

Adds Diamond Aircraft CEO Christian Dries: “We are very proud of this latest order. The second aircraft will be well-suited to its task of calibrating airport navigation systems. It needs a reliable aircraft to perform this essential work, and FCSL has chosen just that.”
