Diamond Aircraft and Austro Engine are proud to announce their partnership with PistonPower™ to offer the Diamond Airframe and Engine Program on all new DA20, DA40, DA50, DA42 and DA62 aircraft as well as in-service Diamond aircraft through their Authorized Sales Representatives and Authorized Service Centers worldwide.
The Diamond Airframe and Engine Program is an hourly cost program where the operator pays an hourly rate based on utilization which covers parts and labor for unscheduled and scheduled maintenance. The program not only provides protection from unforeseen and unscheduled maintenance expenses but also allows predictability of having a fixed budget for the operation of the aircraft or fleet.
Scott Mc Fadzean, CEO Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. said, “There has been a real need for this type of program among piston aircraft owners for years. We are thrilled to be the first piston aircraft and engine manufacturers to offer a program that jet owners have enjoyed for years.” Now with PistonPower™ our owners and operators can benefit from cost predictability and substantial peace of mind,” added McFadzean.
“I chose the Piston Power program for my 2019 DA40NG because it enabled me to build a fixed maintenance expense into my shared use business model. My plane is shared with three other pilots, who pay me a monthly rate for airplane access up to 100 hours/year each. The fixed maintenance cost is built into this rate. The other pilots know I have no incentive to “skimp” on maintenance, delay it due to cash flow considerations, or surprise them with some kind of ‘maintenance assessment’. Everything is built-in. As a first-time owner of a TAA, I also found value in Piston Power’s expertise in overseeing the entire maintenance process, from spinner to rudder. I appreciate having their experience working for me. Their collaboration with Diamond Aircraft to tailor the program specifically for the DA40NG and it’s Austro 300 Jet-A engine gives me added confidence that my plane will be well maintained for safety, reliability, and performance. The four of us can focus on flying, enjoying the airplane and the personal opportunities it provides us. Best regards.”
