Diamond DA 62

Just read the article on the new DA 62. At last engine technology is catching up. It carries more, flys faster, flys further than my Aztec burning half the fuel. It's also cheaper than a new Baron and on par with the piper Malibu range price wise.

What I find most interesting is that the USA is slowly but surely becoming irrelevant as players in the GA market, all the major developments is coming out of Europe. Long may it last.

I like the older looking twins like the Aztec and the BE76 etc, but this DA62, no sorry.
