Re: DA42 shot down

I dont want to put international political stuff on a Diamond forum but lets just say there is some political propaganda spinning going on both sides and always has (as is common when parties are at war).

Re: DA50 base MSRP Guesstimate

New DA62 Interior Option - Lounge Seat Option

Diamond revealed the new Lounge Seat Option for the wider DA62 which consists of an Armrest cavity and cup holders between the 2 middle seats versus 3 seats.

I am also going to bet that this will be an available option for the 5 seat DA50.
