Turbine Luxury in a Piston Single
If you're looking for the ultimate single, look no further. Diamond introduces a new class of piston-powered aircraft — the DA50 SuperStar. There is nothing like it on the market today - a spacious and luxurious composite five seat aircraft designed for the demanding piston pilot who needs to go farther, faster without sacrificing carrying capacity.
With a 350 horsepower, turbocharged FADEC engine, sleek aerodynamic lines and the most advanced and luxurious cockpits ever built for a personal aircraft, the Diamond SuperStar represents the pinnacle in piston powered singles, and is truly the next step for pilots looking for an aircraft that offers the ultimate blend of speed, space and luxury.

The right seat flight controls are easily removable to maximize the experience for non-pilot passengers.
A glass cockpit you would find in a business jet
With its three screen Garmin G1000 suite of avionics — dual PFDs plus a separate MFD — the DA50 cockpit impresses even turbine pilots. Additional equipment features include the fully digital GFC700 autopilot, as well as the latest in active traffic, weather avoidance and digital chart systems. The FADEC controlled singlelever throttle reduces pilot workload — and a smartly designed cockpit with overhead breakers and switches reduces clutter and adds to visual appeal.
Safety that can only be found in a Diamond
Diamond is proud of its industry leading safety record and you can see our 26 years of experience in building composite aircraft in every detail of the DA50. From thoughtful safety features such as protected fuel systems, failsafe and damage-tolerant airframe design, inflatable occupant restraints and a 26G safety cockpit to forgiving handling and impressive performance, the DA50 represents what we know best - building safe, efficient aircraft that perform. As a high-altitude plane, the DA50 also offers a built-in oxygen system, as well as optional TKS anti-icing.
Like its bigger cousin, the D-JET, the DA50 also features an optional ballistic parachute. Now you and your passengers will have the best of the best in terms of safety – a wide array of active and passive safety features offering the ultimate peace of mind.
