The Diamond DA40 Diamond Star is an Austrian four-seat, single-engine, light aircraft. Built in both Austria and Canada, it was developed as a four-seat version of the DA20 by Diamond Aircraft Industries. The aircraft is built with the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit, but some earlier versions were built using traditional steam gauge instruments.
The Diamond DA-40 is powered by a 180 hp (130 kW) Lycoming IO-360-M1A engine. It has a maximum cruise speed of 147 knots, burning 9.2 gallons of Avgas per hour. Its maximum takeoff weight is 2,535 lb (1,150 kg).
Why we need this is Infinite Flight
The Diamond DA-40 is arguably much less known about compared to its cousin, the DA-42, but it still deserves to be added to Infinite Flight. It would give pilots more freedom when flying general aviation, and would be great practice for pilots who are considering purchasing a Diamond aircraft themselves
Please consider voting for this beautiful aircraft. It is much too unloved and would be a welcome addition to the simulator.
