Re: Recommendations on where to get an annual

My DA62 is based at M54 - Lebanon, TN and our A&P has completed the Diamond DA62 training in London, Ontario. He's a great guy and runs a first rate shop. He did my annual and will do so again this summer.

Re: Looking to purchase DA62

Having owned our DA-62 for 14 months and flying it about 130 hours so far I can report zero downtime except for that due to scheduling/workload when completing the annual at my local FBO. There have been a few very minor issues that have been resolved efficiently by all including Diamond. I think on...

Re: Elevator/Pitch Trim Stickiness

Thanks for the comments. Maybe I'm overly sensitive to the stickiness. To address a few items brought up in the comments: The delivery pilot/CFI specifically showed and explained the need to clean the damper with alcohol on a regular basis. The damper has been removed and adjusted per the factory sp...

Re: Elevator/Pitch Trim Stickiness

Jeff - thank you very much for the post. I recently took delivery of C015 and have definitely noticed a stickiness as well. However, no mention of the friction device and need to frequently clean the rod was made at the factory on delivery. Could I trouble you to request you post a picture or two o...

Elevator/Pitch Trim Stickiness

I have a DA62 which is serial number C.005, one of the first out of the London, Ontario plant. I have loved the plane for bit over a year now. One of the ongoing issues that I haven't yet seen discussed on this forum is regarding stickiness in the pitch trim. I know the procedure I've been taught in...

Re: Flightstream 510

Thanks for all the info everyone! Our plane is serial number 62.C005 manufactured in the London, Ontario facility. I'm not sure if that changes any of the potential wiring/hardware modifications mentioned, but I'll certainly be watching and hoping the capability becomes a reality in the near future!

Flightstream 510

Sorry if I missed it, but has Fightstream 510 ever been approved for the DA62? The last I heard about it was about a year ago. Thanks!!

Re: New DA62 Interior Option - Lounge Seat Option

Any idea if it can be retrofitted to an existing DA-62?

Re: Crossing the Pond in a Diamond DA 62

Loved the series! I recently purchased a new DA62 and thoroughly love the plane and watching/reading about them. Great job on very good production!

Re: DA62 Anti Icing Performance

Thanks for the posts on this subject everyone. I have a new DA62 (45 days old), and collected about the same amount ice as seen in the pictures. The TKS protected areas remained predominantly free of ice. We did experience a slight airframe buffet, so were careful to maintain speed and limit control...
