Diamond Aircraft Canada has recently signed a licence agreement with its Brazil-based sales partner Aeromot for the assembly of the DA62 aircraft, creating significant new value for customers and the aerospace industry in one of Diamond Aircraft's key growth markets.
Aeromot will assemble the DA62 aircraft in Porto Alegre under licence from Diamond Aircraft Canada, which will provide the DA62 kits and ongoing support. The Brazilian assembled DA62 aircraft will be delivered to Aeromot's sales territory, which now includes Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay. Depending on market development, this area might be expanded. Diamond Aircraft and Aeromot are looking at a steadily growing output to reach more than 50 units per year. The specific progress depends on the local market conditions.
“The global demand for general aviation aircraft is huge. The Brazilian and South American market in general has seen especially strong growth ,and we believe that now is the right time to look for opportunities to expand production and sales in this region,” says Diamond CEO Kevin Sheng. “The luxury twin DA62 with outstanding economics and space is a great fit for the South American market. For many years Aeromot has been a trusted partner of ours as an authorised dealer in Brazil, having contributed to aircraft sales, and technical and maintenance support for operations in the country. We are convinced that it is the right partner for establishing a DA62 assembly facility in Brazil and will meet our highest standards.”
“We are very proud to announce this agreement with Diamond Aircraft, strengthening our partnership that started back in 2016. The Brazilian market has the key attributes for general aviation growth, and the DA62 perfectly fits the user's needs. This partnership represents an important resumption in the assembly of certified light piston aircraft by Aeromot, contributing to a generation of jobs and strengthening the Brazilian and South American market with innovative solutions,” adds Aeromot CEO Guilherme Cunha.
First deliveries of the Brazilian assembled DA62 aircraft are expected by 2025.
