Each day, the team at Aircraft For Sale picks an airplane that catches our attention because it is unique, represents a good deal, or has other interesting qualities. You can read Aircraft For Sale: Today’s Top Pick at FLYINGMag.com daily.

Pilots in the U.S. have watched with great interest for 20 years as Diamond Aircraft navigated the highs and lows of developing new aircraft. But even as the company grew increasingly successful and its single-engine training aircraft and light twins populated airport ramps across the country, some airplane shoppers hoped for a model that more closely suited their needs. The DA50 RG appears to be the sweet spot many have sought.

Unlike the company’s fixed-gear DA20 and DA40, which we tend to associate with training fleets, and the more complex DA42 and DA62 light twins, the DA50 has the single-engine retractable layout that feels just right to so many pilots. It is fairly easy to make comparisons with Cirrus SR22s, Beechcraft Bonanzas, Cessna Centurions, and other high-performance singles that compete in this popular category.

For those seeking an up-to-date luxury experience more in line with the latest exotic sports cars, the Diamond delivers with beautiful interiors, optional paint schemes, and plenty of comfort features and accessories aimed at keeping passengers happy. It is easy to imagine loading your family into the DA50’s roomy cabin and setting off on a cross-country adventure. 

This new DA50 RG has 20 hours on the airframe, its 300 hp jet-A fueled Continental CD-300 engine, and MT three-blade propeller. The aircraft carries 51.5 gallons of fuel and comes with a ground support and auxiliary equipment package including a pito cover, tow bar, tool kit, gust lock, first-aid kit, fire extinguisher, and egress hammer.

The panel features the integrated Garmin G1000 NXi glass panel cockpit that includes dua Garmin GDU 105 10-inch flight displays for PFD and MFD, Garmin GEA 71B airframe/engine interface unit, dual Garmin GAI 64 W GPS/Nav/Comms, GMA 1360 digital audio system, GRS 79 AHRS, GDC 72 digital air data computer, GMU 44 magnetometer, GFC 700 autopilot, GTX 335R remote ADS-B transponder, and standby attitude module.

This aircraft is equipped with options including the Garmin GSR 56 Iridium Satellite Datalink, GCU 476 keypad, synthetic vision, GDL 69SXM satellite weather, air conditioning, TKS de-icing system, built-in oxygen system, and  Diamond premium paint scheme and interior.

Pilots looking for new, thoroughly modern GA aircraft suitable for family or business travel, and available immediately, should consider this 2024 Diamond DA50 RG, which is available for $1,534,525 on AircraftForSale.
