Utility prepares to supply parts for Diamond in Pacific
Utility Air is working hard with Diamond to identify initial stock to support the Pacific region, as it becomes an exclusive parts supplier. It already has over 18,000 items on the shelf, from rivets to large components.
The decision to invest in Sydney made sense for Utility, as it is central in the region, providing fast support from Perth to New Zealand.

Utility Air, the exclusive distributor of Diamond Aircraft in Australia and New Zealand, has been appointed as a parts distributor for Diamond in the two countries. The appointment comes as the regional market for GA aircraft strengthens post-COVID and flying frequency increases.

“Diamond Aircraft are the best GA aircraft in the world,” declares Utility Air MD Stephen Pembro. “Now, with the introduction of our facility in Sydney, we will be able to provide our owner base with faster access to parts and a large stock holding in the country. This should be a game changer in the region for Diamond and our customers.”

Scott McFadzean, CEO of Diamond Aircraft Industries, adds: “We are excited about Utility Air taking on the responsibility for aircraft parts distribution in its region. This will surely improve the service network in the area, cut down lead times on parts and ultimately support sales in Australia and New Zealand.”

Utility Air director John Oppenheim continues: “The decision to invest in Sydney made sense as it is central in our region, providing fast support from Perth to New Zealand. We have worked hard with Diamond to identify the perfect initial stock to support the region. We have over 18,000 items on the shelf, ranging from individual rivets to large components. We have also ensured that every aircraft in the range is covered, irrespective of how many are in service at the moment.”

The remainder of this year Utility Air will spend reaching out to its customers and service partners and engaging with their needs.

Operating from corporate headquarters in Sydney, Australia, Utility Air provides turn-key aviation solutions throughout the Pacific region, including aircraft brokerage, sales and acquisitions for new and pre-owned aircraft.
