Aircraft Usage: Rental to private pilots & EASA approved training courses (two DA42s and one DA40NG)

I first met Henrik Burkal, one of the founders of Gemstone Aviation, in 2007 when he secured for me a new beautiful DA42, with which I was able to start my business. Over the last 12 years, I have always turned to Henrik for his advice and skills in sourcing Diamond aircraft. 

Gemstone Aviation services:

Through Henrik I have since bought three further planes, a new DA42 to replace the first one, a new DA40 NG and one pre-owned DA42. For the most recent purchase, Henrik again took time to understand what the business needed, and then using his contacts throughout Europe found an ideal plane in Majorca. He helped broker and secure the deal and I took delivery in November 2017. 

I am really confident that I would turn to Gemstone Aviation for their trusted experience, skill and guidance next time I need advice or to source a new or used Diamond aircraft.

Aircraft Usage: Owner and pilot

I own a Diamond DA62 purchased new from Gemstone Aviation in 2019. They helped me broker my previous aircraft which no longer fitted my flying requirements. Due to business commitments and extensive travel I often found it difficult to keep current and up to date as a pilot and my aircraft always seemed to be in the wrong location when I had an opportunity to use it for leisure or business flights.

Gemstone Aviation services:

Chris and Henrik at Gemstone spent time with me to make sure I bought the right aircraft and then put a Flight Support package together for me that makes ownership a really enjoyable experience. They provide me with maintenance and technical support as well as handling all the paperwork for finance and insurance, together with providing advice on flight planning and aircraft ferrying.
Being able to call on them to help with positioning means I can arrange for my DA62 to be in the right location when I need it and I can use a number of trusted pilot buddies to help me out when I need extra piloting support .

“I now get a lot of enjoyment from my aircraft
as well as using it effectively for business trips.”
