First DA42-VI Now Available

LifeStyle Aviation is pleased to offer a special aircraft to the market for sale… the original first DA42-VI that came to North America.

LifeStyle Aviation brought the first DA42-VI to the North American market in 2013. It was all the rage and we were courted by all the prominent aviation magazines to be featured as their front cover stories. The big deal was the total refinement of the DA42 to achieve unprecedented performance with 190+ KT cruise, amazing climb and single engine performance along with truly unbelievable fuel economy.  All that with new levels of comfort and refinement made the DA42-VI like no other aircraft. The DA42 truly set the bar in technological advancement when first delivered in 2006 and the DA42-VI was the crowning achievement of a passion and dedication by Diamond to perfect this remarkable aircraft.

Dave and Sue Passmore enjoyed a European Delivery experience orchestrated by LifeStyle to pick up their remarkable new aircraft. It was like a dream come true and the couple, who are both pilots, enjoyed travels all over North America in N42DA. Dave’s love of the plane and the Diamond line lead him to join the LifeStyle Aviation team as a Diamond Specialist.  As a CFII, MEII and someone that has a knack for technical expertise, Dave quickly became an invaluable LifeStyle team member working with clients to acquire these amazing planes and learn to fly them.

The story continues…In the spring of 2017 Dave and Sue became the proud owners of a beautiful gold DA62 and their beloved DA42-VI that was featured so prominently in the industry as the first DA42-VI brought to America, is now offered for sale to delight its next proud owner.

The best way to introduce you to this remarkable plane is to watch the AOPA feature video and to read the feature story.
