Alpha Aviation is the first Aviation Company to introduce aircraft with diesel engine to Japan. And we have been operating effectively for more than 9 years as well. Aircraft with Diesel engine is also perfect using as training aircraft. The fuel is cheap and efficient. It also has good maintainability.
[Winglet] It is rare case that the small aircrafts have winglet type on them, but DA40NG has it. The winglet is often found in the passenger aircrafts to travel long distance. The winglet work to reduce air resistance and affect cost reduction, too.
Diesel engine and winglet help cost reduction of operating aircraft very well.
[The fuel for the diesel engine is Jet-A1.] [It is equipped with the latest instrument, Garmin1000.] [All seats are individually equipped with air-conditioning outlets.]
