Flight Inspection and Flight Path Validation

First operator in the world to be approved to use the DA42 for flight inspection services and approved by Jeppesen for flight path validation.

DEA, the UK’s only EU-OPS approved operator of the DA42 Twin Star has received UK CAA AOC approval to support flight inspection services using the Diamond DA42 Twin Star across the whole world save the Pacific ocean area!

Three DA42’s have been converted to support flight inspection using Airfield Technology Inc’s AT940 Automatic Flight Inspection Systems.

DEA will operate the aircraft on behalf of a well established flight inspection services company

Certification to CAT III is a standard capability of the AT940 system.

These aircraft follow the trend that the DEA’s DA42 has already achieved in passenger operations of high performance, excellent dispatch reliability and significantly lower direct operating costs when compared to either piston aircraft burning avgas or turbine class aircraft.

The carbon footprint is 3-5 times smaller than avgas piston aircraft or turbine powered aircraft.

The DA42’s economical use of jet fuel (around 11 US Gallons per hour), allied to its range (all DEA DA42s have long range fuel tanks) means that the DA42 can be operated from most major airports (where avgas availability is an increasing problem) and offers cost effective long range positioning, enhancing the competiveness of the DA42 based solution when compared to turbine powered alternatives.

As part of the comprehensive upgrade program the aircraft have been re-engined and fitted with TCAS. To assist visual acquisition the normally white aircraft have had yellow wing tips and tail tips fitted. The Garmin G1000 systems have been revised to the latest versions offering three dimensional flight navigation capabilities as well as extended support for a wide variety of instrument approach procedures, holding patterns and arrival and departure procedures.

The aircraft carry several additional aerials and upgraded power supplies to support the AT940, yet are capable of being returned to normal passenger operations within 15 minutes.

Projects have now been conducted across most of Europe/Africa/Middle East and Asia.
