The UK's Flight Calibration Services Ltd (FCSL) has signed a firm order for a fourth Diamond DA62.

The company is experiencing strong growth, especially in EMEA. In Europe it is providing calibration services for every airport in Ireland, Portugal, Lithuania and Malta, while in the Middle East it has long term service contracts in Oman, Bahrain, Jordan, the UAE (including Abu Dhabi and Dubai International airports), Kuwait and Qatar. Recent contracts in Africa include Egypt, Libya, Morocco, Ghana, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Director Matt Taiyeb says: "The DA62 has proven to be a good platform for our new generation, state-of-the-art flight inspection system and is one of the foundations of our continued growth. 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.”
