Diamond DV20 Katana

Diamond DV20 Katana


The all-composite DV20 Katana is an Austrian-designed aircraft designed specifically to reduce maintenance and running costs in flight training applications, but also as a highly efficient light tourer from private operations.


The sleek, low-drag design offers many features derived from gliders and features such as the T-tail and wing washout are said to reduce the negative efficts of prop wash and produce excellent predicatability in the stall.


This aircraft has been beautifully cared-for and maintained, with very low engine and propeller times - and is offered to the market with a recently completed annual inspection.
