Sometimes recessions can be a good thing—for the consumer, at least. Diamond Aircraft is, for a limited time that the company hasn’t defined, matching customer down payments with up to 10 percent of the actual purchase price. In addition, Diamond tosses in Garmin Synthetic Vision for selected models at no charge.
The offer is good for purchases of two-seat DA20s, four-seat DA40s, and multiengine DA42s.
“Buyers are looking for an extraordinary bargain. With this program we are delivering just that and facilitating financing by providing for a more substantial down payment,” said Peter Maurer, president of Diamond Aircraft Industries. “Combined with bonus depreciation in the USA and free synthetic vision technology on selected models, this program presents our best retail offer ever.”
