Delmon Aviation has purchased a DA42M PP-NG Diamond aircraft, which has just been registered as the first of its type in South Africa. It is the second Diamond aircraft to be owned by Delmon Aviation and was bought through the Elegance Group, the official representatives of Diamond Aircraft in southern Africa.

The official handover of the aircraft took place at the Elegance Group and Diamond Aircraft Industries static park display (SPE09) at AAD. Present were Diamond sales directors Bernhard Gruber and Markus Fischer, as well as Mario Spiegel from Austro Engines and Elegance Group CEO Max Hussmann. It is anticipated that this successful aircraft purchase will be the start of a prosperous relationship between Delmon Aviation, the Elegance Group and Diamond Aircraft Industries.
