Imagine taking your favorite sports car and adding wings. That’s the feeling you get when you strap into the DA20 and take to the skies. Sporty, sleek and exciting – yet surprisingly affordable, the DA20 offers outstanding performance and impressive economy. Encore Flight Academy is fortunate to utilize three Diamond DA20-c1’s, in the flight training programs. Also at Encore Flight School we take advantage of FAA Approved Redbird Flight Simulators with the same cockpit layout as Diamond DA20-C1’s.
Walking up to a DA20, you know this is no ordinary airplane. With a fighter-like canopy, responsive center-stick controls and comfortable bucket seats, it’s clear this airplane will put a smile on your face. And it should – it’s pleased some of the toughest customers in the world, like the United States Air Force.
The DA20’s performance impressed the Air Force and will impress you too: With a sea-level climb rate of 1,000 fpm, a cruise of 138 knts, and a take-off distance of only 1,600 feet over a 50 foot obstacle, the DA20’s performance outshines the competition. Spin certified with a slow 44 knot stall speed, the DA20 is not only sporty, but stable.
