The Diamond HK36 TTC Super Dimona is a two-seat single engine low-wing motor-glider. HOAC-Austria Flugzeugwerk began in 1989 with the development of the HK36 Super Dimona a two-seat powered glider made of fibre-reinforced high-tech composite based on the Hoffmann H36 Dimona. Series production of the HK36 Super Dimona began in 1990. The Super Dimona is equipped with Rotax engines with either the 80 hp 912S; the 100 hp 912S or the 115 hp turbo-charged 914 variant and is commonly used for glider pilot training and towing. In 1996, the company was renamed into Diamond Aircraft Industries. In the USA and Canada, the Diamond HK36 TTC Super Dimona is known as Katana X-treme series. A surveillance derivate is the ECO Dimona, known as Multi Purpose Xtreme in Canada, which is equipped with a movable Wescam camera and cockpit monitor. Over 900 Super Dimona aircraft are built so far.
