Royal Thai Air Force finds a reliable partner

Diamond Aircraft provides the Royal Thai Air Force with the perfect training aircraft for Thailand’s demanding tropical climate.

Diamond Aircraft Industries is a worldwide composite aircraft manufacturer with offices in major centres across North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
The Royal Thai Air Force, one of the leading military forces in South East Asia, has very high standards for its training aircraft. To satisfy these high standards, in the last few years they have evaluated different aircraft and selected the Diamond DA42, a four-seat, twin engine, propeller-driven airplane.

“The aircraft has proven its outstanding reliability and performance in Thailand´s tropical climate,” said Air Marshall Kerdsuk of the Royal Thai Air Force. “We have decided to use the DA42, because this aircraft fulfils all our demands.” All major flying schools in Thailand use Diamond DA42 aircraft.

In 2012, Thailand was hit by one of the heaviest floods of the last hundred years. The area from Bangkok up to Nakhon Sawan literally became a huge lake. Thousands of people had to be evacuated from their homes, many for several weeks. The remote sensing platforms of the DA42 aircraft, equipped with high tech sensors, played an important role in disaster control during this difficult period and provided the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency with actual scanning data. The local Diamond Sales & Service Center staff provided support with IT/data processing capacity.
