The DA42-VI is the successor of the DA42 NG and the DA 42 Twin Star, the world’s first turbodiesel-powered twin-engine aircraft in the under 2000kg category. The four-seater Twin Star was so fuel-efficient that it completed the world’s first non-stop transatlantic crossing by a diesel-powered general aviation aircraft. The advanced DA42-VI is built from lightweight and durable carbon fibre. It is equipped with two state-of-the-art 168hp AE300 turbocharged engines.
