Diamond sister company Austro Engines will develop and produce the engine at its facility alongside Diamond Aircraft in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. The company now produces the 170 hp Austro AE-300 diesel, which powers the Diamond DA-42NG twin. Austro's involvement in the project is encouraging for a few reasons. The company expresses its commitment to GA and to Jet fuel engines. It remains the only company in the world to certify and produce in any numbers a diesel airplane, the DA42. It also showed its agility when the original supplier of that engine, Thielert, went bankrupt and Diamond stepped in, created a new engine company and a new engine design and had the whole thing certified and flying in little more than a year's time.
