Diamond Aircraft DA50

DA50 Specification


The all-carbon fibre DA50 RG with an extra-large luxurious cabin and excellent payload is perfect for single-piston pilots needing more seats and space or for charter operators looking for a low-cost alternative. 

EASA certification

Whilst the official launch of the DA50 RG has been delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions work continued during 2020 and  EASA (European Union Aviation Safety Agency) certification for the exciting new DA50 RG single engine piston with retractable gear is in place. We are already taking enquiries from new customers who would like to know more about the latest member of the Diamond Aircraft family. It’s available in the UK and Ireland exclusively from Gemstone Aviation.

Gemstone Directors test the new DA50

October 2020, Austria
Gemstone Aviation directors, Henrik Burkal and Chris Dawes, were recently invited to Diamond Aircraft factory in Austria to try out the new DA50RG. This was their first opportunity to get their hands on one and put it through it’s paces.  They weren’t disappointed.

Chris commented after taking the controls. “We’ve flown most of the Diamond range and we both love how they handle. So, with Diamond bringing out a new aircraft, we both naturally had very high expectations. I was very impressed with the ease of handling, performance and comfort of the DA50 RG. It looks fantastic as well !”
Henrik added “I really enjoyed flying the DA50 RG, the safety of this aircraft is outstanding. The Diamond engineers encouraged me to fly it ‘on the edge’ to see how it handled”. It coped admirably and all the manoeuvres were both easy to perform and safely executed.”

In fact, Henrik and Chris were so impressed with the plane, as soon as they’d landed, they went in to order a new DA50RG demonstrator, which will be delivered to the UK in the spring of 2021. We’re hoping to have access to an earlier factory demonstrator sooner.  Customers who have registered an interest with Gemstone will be contacted as soon as we have a demonstrator available.

If you would like to talk to Chris and Henrik about the DA50RG and their thoughts about flying one,  you are welcome to call them.
