DA62 MPP Sees Continued Success in European Survey Market

2Excel Expands Diamond Survey Fleet

Diamond's twin-engine aerial survey aircraft has once again proven popular, with another sale to 2Excel  in the UK. 

The company opted for a DA62 Multi-Purpose Platform with a Trakka TC-375 camera and the Diades Marine C-Ranger 200 maritime radar, able to provide surveillance over marine and coastal environments. The DA62 MPP took pole position as a recon aircraft, combining a slow loiter speed and 10 hour endurance to provide the same data collection at a fraction of the cost.

“It is fantastic to see how this still young relationship with 2Excel has grown. 1.5 years ago, we first visited 2Excel with a DA62 MPP for some flight trials. Soon they will have three of our planes in operation. It was a perfect match from the beginning”, said Diamond sales manager Mario Spiegel.

Arnie Palmer, 2Excel Aviation’s Director of Special Missions, said the aircraft were a great fit for the mission. “These DA62 MPPs bolster our fleet of special missions aircraft to service our rapidly growing customer base. They’re equipped to handle many of our mission requirements and our crews have been training on how to use them to best effect, so that we can continue to provide the superb level of service our customers have come to expect from 2Excel Aviation.”

“These DA62s will make our operations even more efficient by reducing operating and maintenance costs," said Arnie Palmer, Aviation Director of Special Missions at 2Excel. "Packed with the latest high-tech sensors and equipment, they will also allow us to generate the required taskings with fewer flying hours, further driving down costs and our carbon footprint and leading to better outcomes for our customers, as well as giving our crews the most up-to-date digital cockpits, enhancing flight safety.”
