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.”

As the cold weather chills AOPA’s Headquarters in Frederick, many of us are inside generating new resources for flying clubs.
In my house, every Friday night is “Movie Night.” While the movies are rarely educational (I don’t think I learned anything from the Lego Movie), we look forward to the weekly opportunity to spend time together. Why not use the same concept for your Flying Club (with the addition of education, of course)?
AOPA Flying Club Manager Kelby Ferwerda posted the following on the AOPA Flying Club Facebook Page: “Recently I’ve talked with quite a few Flying Clubs about maintaining social activity through the cold winter months. Some clubs host Holliday Parties, others have Potluck Movie Nights. What does your club do to keep members involved during the chilly months?”
