General aviation aircraft manufacturer Diamond Aircraft has announced a growth in sales in the Brazilian market, ahead of its appearance at LABACE in São Paulo.
One of Diamond’s standout performers in 2019 has been the new twin-engine DA62 aircraft, with the company delivering two units so far this year in Brazil and taking orders for five more.
“The combination of increased useful load, seven-passenger seating, and twin-engine reliability makes the DA62 a perfect fit for the variety of missions flown in Brazil,” said Diamond CEO Scott McFadzean.
McFadzean also singled out Diamond’s sales representatives in Brazil, Aeromot and FBR Aviation, for particular praise, saying their “hard work, dedication, and investments” had helped growth in the country.
“We welcome all the new Diamond operators in Brazil,” said Aeromot Aeronaves e Motores CEO Guilherme Cunha. “This is a project we are proud to support and invest in.”
Danielle Ulrich, president of FBR Aviation, which supports Diamond sales in Latin America, said the company was “proud of the quick increase in the amount of Diamond Aircraft flying in the Brazilian skies.”
Besides its DA62 model, Diamond also offers the DA20 Katana trainer, the DA40 (NG, Tundra and XLT models), the DART (Diamond Aircraft Reconnaissance Trainer) 450/550 single-engine turboprop, (specifically for military applications) and the twin-engine DA42-IV Twin Star.
