I’m a new Diamond Da40 owner, my first plane I’d be interested to know if there are any Diamond service centers or service shops that specialize in DIAMONDS IN THE Northeast I live in Ct. thank you.

I called them a couple years ago and they sounded good. They run a flight school with Diamonds, so I assume the maintenance is okay.

When I am in New England I am based at Norwood, MA (KOWD) and they have a few Diamonds on the field and a shop that replaced my exhaust bracket one time (fine job).

Did my annual with TakeFlight in 2019 and am doing my annual right now with Three Wing. So far I'm finding Three Wing to be a more thorough experience - Jared's definitely catching some things that others have missed over the years. Can give you a more complete answer once I get my plane back.

best,

I did my annual on my DA 42 last year at Take Flight.
I was and still am disappointed with the service, they missed some things and I am still waiting for the oil analysis (it was never sent)
i am back at Glenn's shop in N.C. That would be South Tech aviation. He may be the best Diamond shop on the east coast.

Expensive but I’m hoping it’s largely a one-time catch-up on some previously missed Chapter 4 items. Took longer than hoped but that was mostly COVID issues with staff. Definitely feel like nothing got missed. I’ll stick with Three Wing next year.
