Urbe Aero Flight Academy increases Diamond Aircraft fleet
The declarations by Lorenzo Mezzadri Accountable Manager
Urbe Aero Flight Academy placed a large order for the purchase of brand-new training aircraft from Diamond Aircraft, due to the excellent relationship the Academy has had with the aircraft manufacturer for years offering a modern and state-of-the-art fleet to its students. With this new investment, the current 11- aircraft fleet at Rome-Urbe Airport in Italy, will be increased by seven new DA-40NG single-engine aircraft and one DA-42VI twin-engine aircraft.
From the very beginning, Urbe Aero Flight Academy has believed in innovation and technology as the key for success, offering high level training from the early steps of flying as a commitment to its own students. This new investment is a testimony to its vision. By adding further DA-40NG and DA-42VI aircraft to our fleet, we are not only adding the most modern, safe, and reliable training aircraft currently available on the market, but also show our care for the environment. The aircraft equipped with Garmin G1000 NXi glass cockpits and powered by the efficient 168 hp AUSTRO AE300 jet-fuel engines burn up to 50% less and leadfree fuel and operate quieter than conventional AvGas powered aircraft.
“Thanks to our shareholders' vision and passion for continuous innovation, our Flight Academy is now able to make this important acquisition to cope with current and future partnerships with European airlines", stated Prof. Lorenzo Mezzadri, Accountable Manager of Urbe Aero Flight Academy. “The growth of our organization in the last twelve years and the huge number of young pilots we were able to prepare for the major airlines, is clear evidence of a basic solidity for a high-level service. With this investment, our fleet will reach 19 Diamond aircraft (7 DA-20C1, 9 DA-40NG and 3 DA-42VI). Our continuous growth and these new projects would not have been possible without the important collaboration with Diamond Aircraft in which we believed from the very beginning”.
“Urbe Aero Flight Academy has been tremendously benefiting from operating aircraft by the same manufacturer for both single engine and multi engine training. Fleet commonality offers them more advantages, such as minimized instructor standardization, rapid student transition and reduced parts inventories. We are delighted about their successful development and are proud to be part of this exciting journey to move the aviation industry forward", said Jane Wang, Sales Director, Diamond Aircraft Austria.
