N150PT is Crosswinds Aviation’s Diamond DA40 Diamond Star.

N150PT also features an Electronic Ignition System in place of the left magneto. This results in higher speeds and lower fuel burn. Don’t be surprised when you don’t notice an RPM drop checking the left “mag”! As a result, the actual performance numbers will vary from the book numbers presented below!

The Diamond DA40 Diamond Star is a great aircraft for instrument training as well as pilots looking to gain experience in a faster aircraft with a constant speed propeller.
