Today’s Top Pick is a 2005 Diamond DA40 F.

The Diamond DA40 has been around for more than 20 years but is still considered a modern design when compared with much of the GA fleet. Functionally this four-seater with a composite structure takes over where older, more conventional models like the Cessna 172 and Piper PA-28 leave off. Like those aircraft, the DA40 is well suited for training student pilots while also making a good personal airplane.

The DA40 has gone through several changes and upgrades during its development, and today it is a popular model with flight schools and as an ideal first aircraft for new pilots. The aircraft is available with a familiar Lycoming IO-360 engine or an Austro Engine AE300 diesel that runs on jet-A.

This 2005 DA40 has 2,503 hours on the airframe and 475 hours on its Lycoming engine. The panel includes G1000 avionics and a GTX 33 transponder. Its paint and interior are original.

Pilots looking for a modern four-seat single that is suited for training and travel should take a serious look at this 2005 Diamond DA40 F, which is available for $250,000 on AircraftForSale.

You can arrange financing of the aircraft through FLYING Finance. For more information, email [email protected].
