Diamond Aircraft produces single and twin engine aircrafts as well as special mission aircrafts from composites in the Austrian city of Wiener Neustadt. Since its founding in the 1980s, the company has sold over 4,000 aircrafts worldwide. Aircrafts from Diamond are verifiably the safest in their class: their incredibly low accident rate of only approximately one sixth of the average accident rate in the general aviation industry is proof thereof (Source: Aviation Consumer January 2012).
At Diamond Aircraft, the stiffness and strength of newly developed fiber composites must be checked in a test series containing 5,000 individual specimens. This material data is read by simulation software to ensure the aircrafts are designed perfectly and reliably.
