The DA20 is an excellent training aircraft for new pilots. This aircraft features a responsive centre-stick control that provides exemplary handling. Visibility and safety are enhanced with a wrap-around canopy that affords great referencing to the natural horizon to develop fundamental flying techniques. While the DA20 is environmentally friendly with a 20lt/hr fuel burn, its performance is impressive with 1000 fpm climb rate and 120kt cruise. This aircraft strikes the right medium in providing the trainee with a responsive feel and the performance to match. The responsive feel of the DA20 means that all of the core handling skills must be fine-tuned, thus providing a honed skill set for the advanced training that is to follow.
