Diamond DA20 – N118CL – $105/wet

Sporty, sleek and exciting – yet surprisingly affordable, the DA20 offers outstanding performance and impressive economy.

With a sea-level climb rate of 1,000 fpm, a cruise of 138 kts while sipping only 5.5 gph, and a take-off distance of only 1,600 feet over a 50 foot obstacle, the DA20’s performance outshines the competition. Spin certified with a slow 44 knot stall speed, the DA20 is not only sporty, but stable.
