Avionics / Equipment
Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology (SVT™) recreates a visual topographic landscape from the G1000 system’s terrain-alerting database. The resulting virtual reality display offers pilots a supplemental 3-D depiction of ground and water features, airports, obstacles and traffic — all shown in relative proximity to the aircraft. This makes situational orientation far easier and less stressful.
A proven TKS ice protection system helps the DA42-VI to withstand flight into known icing conditions. Wings, tail, propellers and windshield are protected with TKS fluid.

The first hourly cost maintenance program for piston aircraft
We are thrilled to be the first piston aircraft and engine manufacturers to offer a program that jet owners have enjoyed for years. Now with PistonPower™ our owners and operators can benefit from cost predictability and substantial peace of mind.
"I chose the Piston Power program for my 2019 DA40 NG because it enabled me to build a fixed maintenance expense into my shared use business model. My plane is shared with three other pilots, who pay me a monthly rate for airplane access up to 100 hours/year each. The fixed maintenance cost is built into this rate. The other pilots know I have no incentive to "skimp" on maintenance, delay it due to cash flow considerations, or surprise them with some kind of 'maintenance assessment'. Everything is built-in. As a first-time owner of a TAA, I also found value in Piston Power's expertise in overseeing the entire maintenance process, from spinner to rudder. I appreciate having their experience working for me. Their collaboration with Diamond Aircraft to tailor the program specifically for the DA40 NG and it's Austro 300 Jet-A engine gives me added confidence that my plane will be well maintained for safety, reliability, and performance. The four of us can focus on flying, enjoying the airplane and the personal opportunities it provides us." ~ Paul Koch ~
