Salut, Antoine. I'm an American, and about-to-be DA40 owner. As a young lawyer I lived for five years in Paris and worked on an arbitration case based in Lausanne. Our team stayed at the Beau Rivage. Beautiful town, great memories.

Welcome to DAN, Mark, and good luck with your new DA40!

I like the Beau Rivage, although it has a bit of a scary history.

Bonjour à tous, mon DA40 est basé à Montréal. Faites-moi signe si vous êtes de passage dans la région!

No 14'ers around here, but some very nice flying to be had nonetheless.

Salut Charles, I don't need to visit the area. I am already in the area - sort of. Check out KPTD. I am based in the US but just 70nm from CYUL - which airport are you at?

Salut Erik, I'm out of CYHU (CYUL is not GA-friendly). There are four DA40s, two or three DA20s and one recently upgraded DA42 here, all owned by individuals.

Hello Antoine - Hello Forum Members and Diamond Stars

greetings from Buochs Switzerland - I am also a newcomer in this forum. Since one year I own a DA40-180 D-ENMA (former N319MA), stationed in LSZC - www.airportbuochs.ch - the place were the Pilatus Aircraft built.

I am looking forward to share the experience with the DA40 community

regards thomas

Hello Thomas,
Welcome to this forum.
LSZC looks like a nice airport.
I'd be very interested to hear about your DA40's FAA to EASA conversion story. I don't know many EASA registered DA40-180 Lyco's around here.

Welcome Thomas,
What year is your DA40? I own a 2003 DA40. If the original tail number corresponds to the serial number we may have similar aircraft.

Hi Jean,

My DA40 is one of the last built with instuments (no G1000). This Version with the MT 3 blade prop has an EASA certificaton. But as far a I know it is also possible to bring a G1000 and a Sens 2 blade prop version into EASA. Do you intend to bring yours to the HB register?

we can discuss this once - by phone or mail - as it is not from great interest for our US friends here in the forum. Or come and make visit in Buochs - I work at the airport.
