The third flight-test D-Jet completed a one-hour 25-minute maiden flight April 15 from Diamond Aircraft’s London, Ontario facility. S/N 003 will be used for performance and handling quality refinement, and to develop avionics, fuel, autopilot and anti-ice systems. The airplane will be retrofitted with the Williams FJ33-19 engine later this year, but it won’t be the first D-Jet to fly with the uprated engine.

Late last week, Diamond Aircraft selected a more powerful version of the Williams FJ33 turbofan–the FJ33-4A-19–for its single-engine D-Jet. With 1,900 pounds of thrust versus 1,564 pounds for the originally planned FJ33-4A-15, the more powerful engine offers “a potential future performance upgrade path” for the very light jet.

Diamond Aircraft last month received a $19.6 million “repayable investment” from the Canadian government for research and development of its $1.4 million single-engine D-Jet. The government’s investment coincides with Diamond’s decision to manufacture the five-seat, all-composite jet single at its facility in London, Ontario, where the D-Jet R&D program is based.
