Utility Air responds to Diamond Customers affected by MSB E4-039

Utility Air is working with Diamond Aircraft and Austro Engines to provide industry leading support in the implementation of MSB E4-039 to APAC customers.

Diamond have recently announced MSA E4-039 for the Austro Engine, which require certain SN's to have ongoing oil sampling due to the possibility of excessive wear from a batch of out of tolerance pistons.

Utility Air is pleased to announce that of the 184 Diamond Aircraft in the APAC region, only a minimal number of aircraft are affected. Of these, Utility Air is working through its Service Centre Network with Diamond to monitor the engines and is speaking with the customers.

John Oppenheim, Director of Utility Air, said today "We're grateful for the support that Austro and Diamond are providing our customers and we are working with each of them to ensure minimal disruption" John continued "We're fortunate that this MSB only refers to a particular run of parts, and therefore the numerous new aircraft we have being delivered and for sale over the next few years are not affected"

Just today, Austro have advised that replacement pistons will become available Q1 of next year for free of charge replacement on affected aircraft, thus concluding this matter.

Utility Air encourages any concerned owners to contact them directly to discuss the MSB.

Operating from corporate headquarters in Sydney, Australia, Utility Air provides unparalleled turn-key aviation solutions throughout APAC, including aircraft brokerage, sales, and acquisitions for both new and pre-owned aircraft. Utility Air is the exclusive distributor for Diamond Aircraft and Diamond Aircraft Parts in the region.
