Diamond's DA62 looks stunning!

Recommended Posts

Got my copy of Flying in the mailbox today and they ran an article on the new 4 seat diamond twin, the DA62

 

I love everything about the plane

Yes it looks amazing but why would you get this rather than a Cirrus SR22T.  I think the SR22T beats it in almost every category.

Well, it's got 2 engines (so I'm assuming better performance especially from hot/high airports), a higher service ceiling, 2 extra seats, 385 nm more range @60%, max payload is 709lbs more,  and uses 11.8 gph vs 12.4 gph @ 60% than the cirrus. However, it is more expensive. Personally, I'd buy the SR22T but both are very capable aircraft and I wouldn't say the Cirrus beats the Diamond in almost every category.  Plus, it looks so much nicer!

Well, but these aircraft are in different categories, it is comparing apples to oranges.

Fit more bodies in a DA62 for one. I love the SR22 - fantastic aircraft. But the cirrus, is really only a three seater with full tanks/luggage. The DA is likely only a 5 or 6 seater with that.

 

Agree though - different missions

Sounds good...I'll fly out to YYZ and switch planes and I'll fly back to duluth.  You're just a straight shot to the east for me lol!

The TBO is too short to purchase (not that I have a spare $1.5M lying around). But, a lease option would make sense. A 1000 Hour TBO is likely a no go for many buyers.

 

If only I had the cash. I would lease it, and fly it to the Caribbean every weekend!
