That’s a mistake. The DA62 stacks up incredibly well against the SR22, and in many ways, it is the superior airplane. If I was in the market for a new high-performance piston GA airplane, the Cirrus would be on my list, of course, along with the Mooney Ovation and Acclaim Ultra models, Piper M350, and the DA62. Where the DA62 tips the argument in its favor is the redundancy of a second engine. And not just in terms of having two engines in case of an engine failure, although that’s certainly a worthwhile consideration, especially if you’ll be flying long distances in hard IFR, over water or at night. A second engine also offers a redundant power source to run the avionics, important in the tech-heavy era in which we live.
