D-IRAY Diamond DA62 c/n 62.047 - Flugplatz Bonn-Hangelar in Germany - 14 May 2023 Flugplatz Bonn-Hangelar (EDKB)

The Diamond DA62 is a light, twin-engine, 7-seater, jet fuel powered transport aircraft produced by Diamond Aircraft Industries and first announced in March 2012. The aircraft builds on the strengths of the twin piston Diamond DA42, with increased performance, payload, cabin volume and utility. The prototype, designated Model DA52, first flew on 3 April 2012 after six months of development. In June 2014 it was announced the production aircraft would be designated the DA62. The DA62 series is powered by two Austro Engine 180hp AE330 turbocharged common-rail injected 2.0 liter jet fuel engines with single power lever control. The 3 blade MT hydraulic constant speed propellers feature advanced blade geometry for efficient performance and low noise. The Diamond DA62 is built in Austria and Canada. In January 2023, it was announced that Aeromot will assemble DA62s in Brazil from kits supplied by Diamond Aircraft Canada, starting in 2025. The intention is to ramp-up production to 50 aircraft per year. Today, more than 150 Diamond DA62 are built.
The ICAO Aircraft Type Designator for the Diamond DA62 is DA62.

The 2017-built Diamond DA62 s/n 62.047 was registered D-IRAY in Germany. On 21 September 2023, the aircraft was destroyd in an accident: one minute after take-off from runway 21 at Nancy-Essey Airport (ENC/LFSN), the pilot announced an engine problem. He tried to return to the aerodrome but had to make a forced landing in a field and collided with trees. The two occupants sustained minor injuries.
On 14 May 2023, Diamond DA62 D-IRAY was seen at Flugplatz Bonn-Hangelar (EDKB) in Germany.
