I sat in a mock of this cabin at some point, really nice. I also like the look. If it could do 200kts on 10gph of JetA with fiki it would be a cool plane.

Yeah the JetA thing is a big deal. I wonder why Cirrus hasn't gotten one going?

Very cool concept. I agree that this is far overdue.

They throw autoland and they have a winner.

I wonder how the insurers will handicap auto-land?

No reliable supply of reliable engines.

The whole musical chairs in the business ownership, who's making what and so on.

Then there's the TBR issue. 1200hrs between *replacement* of the CD300. Not overhaul, replacement.

Will it be an airworthiness limitation? 1200hrs/12yrs and you buy a new one, no matter what?

Continental has been sitting on these diesels for years. Seems like no motivation throughout the whole company. Bunch of people picking up a check. BWTHDIK

In CMI's defense, they can't control or dictate airframe development or retrofit work... In fact, I'm not sure they even have the staff or expertise to develop a retrofit STC for an existing plane, even if a business case could be made. I can't imagine it would make economic sense in the US compared to existing engine overhaul costs and the price/availability of avgas.

Diamond adapted the long-under-development DA50 to use this diesel...makes sense for them since they don't really have a plane in this class and the diesel can differentiate them in the market...especially where avgas is scarce. I imagine it is very quiet too since the prop is spinning 2300 RPM. Lots of upside if they can deliver great performance. I'm anxious to see more detail and data.

I wonder if the diesel will support the pressurized version?

It would be good to have a competitive diesel in the singles market but they got to do something about that cowl. “Butt ugly” is the best I can say about it.
