Diamond Da40 Diamond Star

The Diamond DA40 Diamond Star, introduced in 2000 as a single-engine, light aircraft, was developed as a four-seat version of the preceding DA20 model. The initial DA40 was equipped with the Lycoming IO-360 M1A engine. The company strategically relocated the production of all Lycoming-engined variants to Canada, with the Austrian factory focusing on manufacturing the diesel-engined variant. Featuring a fixed tricycle landing gear and a T-tail, the Diamond DA40’s design contributed to the model’s success, boasting a remarkably low accident record. Its accident rate is only a fraction of other aircraft in general aviation, attributed to the DA40’s high aspect ratio wing, low wing loading, and benign flight characteristics.

Red Box is delighted to present an extensive range of ground power equipment for this aircraft, including tugs, ground power units, start power units and more, all meticulously designed to meet the specific requirements of the Diamond DA40.

This selection includes the 701D tug, and the RBPS50 continuous power unit, ideal for diagnostic work, pre-flight checks, or continuous equipment powering during operations without depleting the onboard aircraft batteries. We also offer a combination of start and continuous power in one unit for the Diamond DA40 in our TC3000 range.
