LifeStyle Aviation’s DiamondShare Program Continues Rapid Growth

New Syracuse Location Is The Latest Base Of Operation For Affordable Aviation Access Alternative

North American Diamond Aircraft distributor LifeStyle Aviation has added its newest DiamondShare location, signing a Diamond DA40 NG to the program at Syracuse Hancock International Airport in New York.

Dr. Richard Tallarico (pictured), an orthopedic surgeon in East Syracuse, New York, purchased the new airplane as a way to enjoy trips with his family and complete his instrument rating quickly. LifeStyle Aviation recruited two DiamondShare members who help offset the costs of ownership while allowing them to gain access to a modern general aviation airplane they otherwise could not afford.

In making his decision about which airplane to purchase, Dr. Tallarico said he was attracted foremost to Diamond’s strong commitment to designing the most advanced and safest general aviation aircraft in the industry.

"Right from my initial research, it was the safety profile of this aircraft and the DiamondShare program that attracted me,” Dr. Tallarico said. “The DA40 has the safest track record of any competing airplane. With the New Generation DA40 I was drawn by the technology and convenience that make it the most advanced entry-level, single-engine piston airplane available.”

The new four-seat Diamond DA40 NG features a 168 hp jet-A-burning Austro diesel engine that is extremely smooth and fuel efficient. The computer-controlled engine completes its before-takeoff runup automatically, has no propeller or mixture controls, and burns less fuel than comparable gasoline aircraft engines while propelling the DA40 NG to a cruise speed of an impressive 150 ktas.

The latest Garmin G1000 NXi avionics in the DA40 NG ease workload for single pilots while offering an array of advanced technologies including Garmin’s Synthetic Vision Technology, WAAS LPV approach capability and GFC 700 integrated automatic flight controls.

The combination of diesel engine technology, advanced avionics and an innovative ownership model made the purchase an easy choice, Dr. Tallarico said. “Beyond the technology in the airplane, it was DiamondShare program that made this acquisition justifiable,” he said. “It was important that I had a safe plane with the most technologically advanced features but I wanted to make sure the economics were easy to justify as well. The combination of DiamondShare and the DA40 NG checked all the boxes for me.”

Since LifeStyle Aviation introduced the program, DiamondShare has grown to include dozens of locations throughout the United States. DiamondShare is designed essentially to cover the payments and major expenses of a new Diamond Aircraft for the owner while giving members the benefits of new aircraft access with none of the hassles of partnerships. Beyond the monthly membership fee, DiamondShare members pay only for the fuel they use as insurance is included.

For many pilots, DiamondShare is fast becoming their preferred route for attaining an aviation lifestyle of their dreams. Dr. Tallarico, who earned his private pilot certificate last summer, said he couldn’t be happier with the choice he made. “This is a beautiful aircraft,” he said. “The fit and finish are excellent. It has great ramp appeal. But more importantly, this is a well-designed aircraft that is very pilot-centric. I love the handling and ease of entry into the cabin. The Jet-A engines with automated runup and virtually no pilot work-load make the plane a virtual ‘magic carpet’ for me and my family.  For a freshly minted pilot like myself, that’s important because I want to be able to aviate without the burden of the complexities that Diamond has done such a great job in eliminating with the DA40 NG. The DiamondShare program brought it all together and the folks at LifeStyle were amazing supporting me every step of the way.”
