This is the very first Diamond Aircraft plane to operate in Algeria.


ATS choose the DA40 NG for the flourishing Algerian general aviation market citing unbeatable efficiency and safety, state-of-the-art avionics and outstanding flight characteristics.
The aircraft took off in Wiener Neustadt, Austria (Diamond Aircraft headquarters) to Malta where it was handed over to the Algerian pilots. The following day the DA40 NG landed at its final destination Hassi Messaoud.
The ferry pilots flew the distance of 1,747 nm (3,235.4 km) in 14 hours while burning only 6.5 USGal/hour on average, following this route: Wr. Neustadt, Austria – Bari, Italy – Valetta, Malta – Algiers, Algeria - Hassi Messaoud, Algeria.

 ATS representative Mr. Mamma said: “I was honored to experience my first flight in the Diamond DA40 New Generation. My first feeling is the aircraft was very smooth during the flight. I would say that this aircraft is excellent and nice for the training as it offers a comfort, panoramic visibility and the powerful Garmin G1000 that provides a pilot with helpful information which is combined with solid performance.”
