DA40 Series

The Tecnam P2006T Next-Generation twin is in a class of its own, bringing affordable multi-engine flying to aero-clubs, flying schools, syndicates and private aircraft owners.

DA40: FOUR SEAT VERSATILITY

Whether you are a new aviator looking for the perfect first airplane, an experienced IFR pilot with discerning tastes, or a forward-thinking flight school, the DA40 is the smart choice. The durable composite airframe, ultra-low fuel burn, and superb handling make the DA40 a great airplane for travel, leaseback, and training alike.

Taking delivery of a brand new DA40 NG was a dream come true. I have been the happy owner of a DA42 and had long wanted to add a sister single-engine plane alongside the twin - for my owner-run rental business. I took the plunge and ordered the DA40 NG. She is beautifully designed and has a character that shows through as you warm her up, playfully waiting to launch herself into the world. This plane soars rather than just taking off. In her short time in the UK, she has been all over Europe, including down as far as Portugal, and has won many fans.

DA40 XLT FACTS AND SPECIFICATIONS

GREAT FOR TRAVELING AND TRAINING

The DA40 XLT is the ultimate development of this popular single, incorporating the experience gained in several million hours of operation and years of service under the harshest of conditions. While it cannot match the absolute fuel efficiency and economy of its Austro-powered stablemates, the DA40 XLT's aerodynamically efficient airframe extracts a level of performance out of its 180hp Lycoming engine, normally associated with higher horsepower.


POWERED BY LYCOMING

The fuel-injected normally aspirated Lycoming IO360M1A is the most advanced development of the long-serving Lycoming 180 hp O/IO360 family. Installed in the DA40, the 180hp engine drives a choice of composite and metal constant speed 2-blade propellers by Hartzell or a 3-blade propeller by MT, offering each customer the choice of maximum performance, durability, and value. The Lycoming IO360 delivers smooth and refined performance, has amassed millions of flight hours in high utilization operations worldwide, is familiar to A&Ps everywhere, and consistently reaches TBO and beyond.

I sat in a lot of planes before making my decision. My DA40 feels a lot like a European sports car. When you sit in a Porsche and you touch or reach for something, it's so well designed that it feels like someone really paid attention to all the details, right down to the font used on the speedometer. I feel as though my Diamond is like that a talented team really put a lot of thought into it. They started with a new idea, and each piece feels well-considered and thought out
