Upgrades Training Aircraft To Glass Cockpits
The Singapore Youth Flying Club (SYFC) is modernizing its
training fleet with the selection of state-of-the-art Garmin G1000
glass cockpit equipped Diamond DA40 CS aircraft and complementary
Diamond Simulation Flight Training Device.
This fleet replacement is consistent with the club's mission to
be a world-class aviation training center, promote aviation and
develop a strong passion for flying among Singapore youth. "Many
SYFC graduates go on to become Republic of Singapore Air Force
(RSAF) or commercial pilots," said Willie Chow, operations manager
of SYFC. "We wanted to provide them with more
technologically-advanced machines. With the Diamond DA40s, we
expect to attract even more students."
"We are delighted that SYFC has selected the DA40," said Peter
Maurer, President of Diamond Aircraft Industries, Inc.
"Integral to our successful bid was the participation of our
regional sales and service representative, Asian Aerospace
Services, and MAJ Aviation, the prime contractor and maintenance
provider. We look forward to supporting the long term success
of the SYFC operation."
The Diamond DA40 is the best selling modern four-place single
engine aircraft in class, popular with private pilots and flight
training schools alike. The DA40 has been selected by premier
flight training organizations worldwide, including CAE Global
Academy, the US Air Force Academy and many others. It offers
superior efficiency, performance, value, an unsurpassed safety
record, and complementary two seat and twin engine aircraft as well
as proprietary Flight Training Devices.
