RALEIGH, N.C. -- The new Jet-A burning retractable gear Diamond DA50 RG is now FAA Certified and on tour in the Western United States. Tour stops include Denver, Phoenix, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Reno, San Francisco, Portland and Seattle in August and September 2023.

LifeStyle Aviation, the largest selling Diamond distributor, is conducting the tour through the Western US states. The DA50 Western tour kicks off August 26th in Denver with 7 stops in  western cities with the final stop in Seattle at the end of September.  All tour dates, locations,  registration, aircraft information and request for demo flight access are at: Events | LifeStyle Aviation.

The FAA presented Diamond Aircraft the long awaited validation certificate for the Diamond DA50 RG Jet-A fueled single engine aircraft at EAA Airventure 2023.  This certification opens the floodgates for deliveries to begin to the US market. The Diamond DA50 RG has been certified in Europe since late 2020 and LifeStyle Aviation has been taking orders for the aircraft for US delivery since Airventure 2022 pending the FA validation. The 5 place DA50 RG is the single engine version of the ultra popular Diamond DA62 - 7 place twin engine aircraft. The plane is a proven aircraft that has been flying around the world in many places for the last two years and now US customers will finally be able to take delivery and enjoy this amazing new aircraft. 

“The response from the market has been remarkable,” stated John Armstrong, Founder and CEO of LifeStyle Aviation. “People are raving about the way the plane looks, its impressive ramp presence and sleek airborne silhouette. The DA50 is the coolest new aircraft introduced to General Aviation since the certification of the Diamond DA62 and we are thrilled to be bringing it to market with deliveries beginning this quarter.”

The DA50 RG is definitely not a “me too look alike” aircraft but a unique creation that people will aspire to own. With its large comfortable 5 place cabin, 6 cylinder computer controlled, liquid cooled, twin turbo-charged Jet-A compression (diesel) engine, retractable trailing-link landing gear, large gull-wing doors, winglets and large three blade composite prop this aircraft has an American “Muscle Car” appeal combined with an ultra-refined European flair. Also appealing to more buyers is the fact that it is computer controlled, ultra-efficient, and burns lower-cost Jet-A vs not-leaded AvGas due to the continued industry battle over leaded AvGas availability, environmental impacts and health concerns. 

Another unique characteristic of the DA50 is that it allows buyers to start with a single engine aircraft and when more range or load are needed, they can seamlessly upgrade to the twin engine DA62 version of the same plane. With the addition of the DA50 the Diamond line is truly unprecedented in providing customer choice: with a two-place trainer DA20, four-place diesel single and twin DA40/DA42, a five-place DA50 and a seven-place DA62.  

LifeStyle Aviation provides turn-key sales, importation, delivery and customized transition training for new clients to help them have a great new aircraft buying experience. The company encourages those that can’t make it to one of the tour stops to reach out to receive more information regarding the Diamond line and to receive future notices of events and demo flight opportunities.
