Diamond Aircraft has a real commitment to aircraft safety, having as main objective to design models extremely safe for all occupants and at the same time a pleasure to fly.
The company is the pioneer in the use of survival airframe cabin based on F1 technology and is the only small aircraft manufacturer to perform Crash test on the entire structure, with aircraft models that withstand up to 26G impact.
Diamond aircraft have unmatched and consistent safety records over millions of flight hours worldwide, the DA40 and DA42 models, for example, have the 1st and 2nd lowest accident rates in the market, according to data from the NTSB - National Transportation Safety Board.
Diamond is the only company that performs dynamic crash tests on the entire fuselage structure, not just the seats as is usually the case with other piston aircraft manufacturers.
This allows Diamond to test the fuselage cabin structure, seats, and restraints as a full-scale system for more accurate safety data. The company has models with proven resistance to an incredible 26G impact.
