Re: The G1000 project -

Really? I get it. So results don’t matter. You really, really tried hard, put together a five star team of participants to present your concerns, requests to Diamond hierarchy and you have absolutely nothing to show for it other than platitudes. I understand, you have no concrete results of what yo...

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

Well Tim, that’s one of the reasons I have moved away from Diamond. I have only one life time and that’s short enough.

Re: First flight of the retractable DA50

Your best investment in pilot/passenger safety is pilot proficiency. It is by far, the best and most inexpensive way to maintain safety. This point cannot be argued, only accepted, or, rejected. The choice is yours.

Re: The G1000 project - "The next step"

You guys are being played like a fiddle. I would normally say I’m shocked you haven’t figured it out yet, but, I’m not. You have decades of unchanging behavior by Diamond and you still expect something different. :scratch:

Awe, come on Tim. Bills are fun. They let you know you’re alive.
Spend it now because the gov is going to be coming after EVERYONE to pay for all of this Covid spending.

Re: Finally the Launch??

I wouldn't survive an engine out in a Deathstar. I know my limitations. I flew 14hrs in the DA42 with one engine shut down and feathered. I was as comfortable as I was in my DA40.

Re: Finally the Launch??

...yes it is... and it’s half of 1.2 MM... 300K will do the same, 600K does it a lot nicer.
I just have another point of view.

The airframe is 40 years old and completely rebuilt. The whole process was pretty much along the lines of what Nextant Aer...
