About DA20

Imagine taking your favorite sports car and adding wings. That's the feeling you get aboard the two-seat DA20. Stylish, easy to maintain, and used worldwide by leading flight schools, the DA20 is the right choice for those who want a low operating cost, technologically up-to-date, and extremely safe aircraft. As a result, it has become the standard aircraft for the U.S. Air Force Academy, and is required by flight schools around the world for its robustness, performance and economy, both in basic and intermediate flight instruction, due to its GARMIN G500TXi panel.
Due to its certification by the Aeronautical Authorities, American FAA ("Federal Aviation Administration") and Canadian TCCA ("Transport Canada Civil Aviation"), the DA20 is able to perform night flights under VFR conditions ("Visual Flight Rules"), as well as to be used for stall recovery training. In Brazil, the Diamond DA20 is part of the fleet of the renowned Aeroclube de São Paulo for the instruction of its students. Surprisingly affordable, it offers exceptional performance, with impressive durability and economy. Due to its reliability it can be used both by early stage pilots and in more challenging environments, as it ensures all the necessary safety.

Protection for its occupants!

Always thinking about the pilots' safety, Diamond uses high safety standards in its models, aiming to reduce as much as possible any physical damage to its occupants. The Diamond DA20 uses a monocoque fuselage made of lightweight and strong carbon fiber composite material, providing maximum durability, aerodynamics, performance and superior protection for its occupants.
