The Diamond DA62 is an up to seven-seat, twin-engine aircraft produced by Diamond Aircraft Industries both in Austria and Canada. It is based upon the fuselage of the single-engine Diamond DA50. After six months of development, designated first as the DA52, the prototype flew its maiden flight on April 3, 2012. Finally renamed to be Diamond DA62, it has two Austro AE330 turbocharged 2.0-liter diesel aircraft engines, 180 horsepower (134 kW) each. The aircraft is available in two weight versions, a five-seat version for Europe (MTOW 1,999 kg and 4,407 lb) and a seven-seat version (MTOW 2,300 kg and 5,071 lb) for the United States.
The lighter European version is to allow the operator to avoid higher weight-based air traffic control user charges at the airports. The normal cruise speed for Diamond DA62 is 171 knots (125 km/h) at 75% power with en-route flight range up to 1,290 nautical miles (2,380 km). The maximum speed at 14,000 feet with a maximum continuous power set is 192 knots (356 km/h). For longer flights, it is possible to climb up to a maximum ceiling altitude of 20,000 feet (6,096 meters). Fuel consumption is approximately 28 liters per hour total both engines allowing endurance for 10 hours.
The Diamond DA62 is flyable in the next generation of Microsoft Flight Simulator Standard, Deluxe, and Premium Deluxe Editions.
