The National Test Pilot School recently added a Diamond DA-42 Twin Star to its already diverse fleet of aircraft. In addition to its unique aerodynamic and systems designs, the Twin Star introduces civil diesel engine technology to the school as well adding a civil production FADEC capability. Equipped with a Garmin G-1000 cockpit, the DA-42 joins NTPS’ other technically advanced aircraft as part of our technology refresh and fleet modernization program.
