The DA50 RG featuring retractable gear and the 300 hp Continental CD-300 jet fuel engine was supposed to be unveiled at this year’s AERO Friedrichshafen that was cancelled due to the developments regarding the spread of coronavirus COVID-19. As the coronavirus continues to pose challenges to the global aviation industry Diamond Aircraft decided to celebrate the launch of their newest product at a more suitable time.
Diamond Aircraft is aiming for basic certification from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the 5-seat version equipped with CD-300 engine and retractable gear in Summer 2020.
