Utility Air, exclusive Distributor for Diamond Aircraft in the region, has announced that a new Diamond DA40NG Aircraft is going to commence a demo tour on December 5 through Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
The aircraft, in Utility Air Livery, will be travelling down the East Coast on the following dates –
- Saturday December 5 – Brisbane and surrounds.
- Sunday December 6 – Gold Coast.

- Wednesday December 9 – Lilydale and Ballarat.

The timing of the demonstrator tour is critical, with industry price rises coming through next year. Utility Air plans to offer 2021 production slots at 2020 pricing as a call to action for customers who have been sitting on the side line during the recent lockdowns.
John Oppenheim, a Director of Utility Air, commented, "After the slowdown in flying and events caused by Covid 19, we are excited to be able to invest in the future of Aviation in the region again. Bringing this aircraft to our marketplace shows a commitment not just to Diamond Aircraft but also to all our owners and prospective customers in Australia and New Zealand. It is only through investment in the growth of aviation and marketing that we'll get back to where we all want to be…Flying."
Utility Air's Managing Director, Stephen Pembro was effusive about the product. "This aircraft represents the future. We've been selling them steadily now for over a year and Diamond is currently the number 2 manufacturer of light aircraft in the world. Bringing a cutting edge DA40 NG into the country for demonstrations, which burns only 19.5 liters of Jet A1 per hour and has state of the art Avionics, will help further cement Diamond as a favorite in our Region. I can't wait to show the aircraft off."
There will be ample time to show the aircraft at each stop to interested customers and also journalists.
