During Sun `n Fun and until April 30, Diamond Aircraft is dropping prices on its new aircraft for sales in North America by up to $40,000 to stimulate sales as the recession fades away.
You can get $20,000 off a two-seat Diamond DA20, $25,000 off a four-seat Diamond DA40, and $40,000 off a Diamond DA42 twin-engine aircraft.
“We are seeing a recent increase in buyer interest, our distributors' new aircraft inventories are low, and we are starting to rebuild our order books,” said Peter Maurer, president of Diamond Aircraft Industries in London, Ontario. “These incentives are intended to continue that momentum. Combined with the recently expanded bonus depreciation tax benefits, these cash credits present an excellent opportunity to acquire a factory new or demonstrator airplane.”
