The Diamond DA40 Star is an Austrian four-seat, single-engine, light aircraft constructed from composite materials. Built in both Austria and Canada, it was developed as a four-seat version of the earlier DA20 by Diamond Aircraft Industries.
Based on the success of the earlier DV20/DA20 two-seat aircraft, the company designed a four-seat variant, the DA40. The DA40 is a four-seat low-wing cantilever monoplane made from composite materials. It has a fixed tricycle landing gear and a T-tail. The Rotax 914-powered prototype DA40-V1, registered OE-VPC, first flew on 5 November 1997 and was followed by a second prototype DA40-V2 (registered OE-VPE) which was powered by a Continental IO-240. In 1998 a third prototype DA40-V3 flew powered by a Lycoming IO-360 engine. Four more test aircraft were produced followed by the first production aircraft in 2000. JAR23 certification of the IO-360 production variant was obtained in October 2000. In 2002 the production of the Lycoming-engined variant was moved to Canada and the Austrian factory concentrated on diesel-engined variants.
The DA40 has officially appeared in only three versions, the DA 40, DA 40D and DA 40F, as documented on its type certificates. The various model names that the aircraft has been sold under are marketing names and are not officially recognized by the authorities that have certified the aircraft.
The design was attributed to engineer Willy Messerschmitt who would later go on to design and develop the excellent Bf 109, the German Luftwaffe's primary fighter of World War 2. Manufacture of the type was handled by Bayerische Flugzeugwerke.
The aircraft was of a conventional design with a well-streamlined fuselage wide enough to seat the crew side-by-side. The engine was fitted to a forward compartment (powering a two-bladed propeller assembly) ahead of the cockpit while the fuselage tapered off into a raised empennage which was capped by a shallow, rounded vertical tail fin. Horizontal planes were added to the base of the rudder and reinforced in earlier models with struts. The main wing assemblies were low-mounted, straight monoplanes with rounded tips. The undercarriage was retractable with the main landing gear legs recessing under each wing root. The tail wheel remained lowered at all times though earlier versions featured a simple skid in its place. The cockpit was heavily glazed which allowed for better-than-average views from within.
