DA-40 XL with Speed, Comfort, and Style

The Diamond DA-40 XL is the ideal 4 seat single engine aircraft, with performance, safety and efficiency integrated into every aspect of its design.

 Built to impress, the DA40 XL is a joy to fly and comes fully loaded with every option you could possibly want: the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit with integrated GFC 700 autopilot, traffic, weather, and terrain; inflatable seat restraints, and many other standard features.

Whether you’re a seasoned pilot or just getting into flying, the DA-40 XL’s speed, comfort, and safety (the best in the industry) will offer you and your passengers the ultimate flight experience.

Spacious and wide, the DA40 XL cabin has more baggage volume and better access, thanks to its second door, than any aircraft in its class.

Fresh air ventilation and heating improve comfort, and the AMSAFE inflatable restraints compliment the XL’s unmatched safety record.

  • AmSafe Inflatable Restraints (front seats included)
  • Premium Interior (champagne leather)
  • High intensity landing and taxi lights

The Garmin G1000 with GFC700 Automatic Flight Control System

All critical flight information can be displayed on either screen for easy viewing from either seat

  • Dual Nav/Com/GPS WAAS ready
  • Dual power sources
  • Standby instruments, centered at the top of the instrument panel, easily visible from either seat, have their own dedicated power supply
  • XM Satellite radio and digital audio player ready
  • Traffic Advisory System

The Avidyne active Traffic Advisory System provides reliable traffic information regardless of radar coverage, with actual audio annunciations of potential threats, keeping you informed of conflicts, adding peace of mind to every flight.

Put it on Autopilot

Our Diamond DA-40 XL also includes the Garmin GFC 700, the first entirely new autopilot, designed and certified for the 21st century. The GFC 700 is capable of using all data available to the G1000 to navigate; including the ability to maintain airspeed references and optimize performance across the entire airspeed envelope.

Enhance Situational Awareness

G1000 seamlessly integrates built-in terrain and navigation databases; providing a clear, concise picture of where you are and where you’re heading. Using information from the built-in terrain and U.S. obstacles databases, the G1000 displays color coding to graphically alert you when proximity conflicts loom ahead. In addition, you can augment G1000 with optional Class-B Terrain Awareness and Warning System (TAWS) for an extra margin of safety in the air.

Add Weather, Radio and Traffic

Data is provided through XM Satellite Radio’s XM WX Weather Service using location-specific WxWorx information. XM’s two powerful S-band geostationary satellites, positioned over the east and west coasts, deliver seamless, near real-time coverage at any altitude across the continental United States. The weather suite’s high resolution color graphics provide detailed NEXRAD radar and METARs data, as well as current reports on precipitation, lightning, winds-aloft, echo tops, TFRs and more.

Listen to Satellite Radio

Our Diamond DA40 XL also delivers XM Satellite Radio; Enjoy a wide variety of continuous news, sports, music and entertainment programming anywhere nationwide. The GDL 69A interfaces with the cockpit audio panel control to play through the aircraft’s audio system.
