As good citizens, minimising the impact of our operations on the environment is one of our key objectives. The DA62's performance together with low fuel burn, reduced emissions and reduced noise profile has allowed FCSL to deliver on this objective while offering a reliable, cost effective, tailored flight inspection solution for our customers.”
Diamond sales director Amila Spiegel adds: "FCSL's success story shows that this modified version of the DA62 is the perfect tool for flight calibration, as it provides attractive payload with economical fuel burn and low maintenance costs.”
