CTC Aviation announces Diamond fleet expansion

unnamed-1CTC Aviation has announced that it will equip its newest flight training centre in Phoenix, Arizona in the United States, with a fleet of brand new, Garmin 1000 glass cockpit-equipped, Diamond Aircraft with Austro engines.

This investment in this technology will see CTC Aviation’s international training fleet grow to a total of 56 aircraft distributed between the company’s Crew Training Centres in the United Kingdom, New Zealand and the USA.  The order includes single-engine DA40 and twin-engine DA42 (NG) aircraft.  The first two DA40 aircraft will be delivered to CTC Aviation’s Phoenix (USA) facilities during March 2014.  A further five DA40s and three DA42s are scheduled to arrive before the end of 2014.

“We were one of the first flight training providers to select the DA42 aircraft and have been operating a fleet of Diamond single- and twin-engine aircraft out of our New Zealand flight training facilities for almost ten years.  We have found their safety record, efficiency and economics, state-of-the-art avionics and outstanding flight characteristics to be unbeatable,”commented Rob Clarke, Group CEO of CTC Aviation.

CTC Aviation recently announced its expansion into the United States and their latest Crew Training Centre in Phoenix, Arizona (US) has capacity for up to 200 trainee airline pilots per annum.  This Diamond Aircraft order forms part of the US$7m investment CTC Aviation is making to equip their new facility in readiness for the first trainees who are due to commence training in April 2014.
