We are thrilled to announce that N42MV, a 2015 Diamond DA42-VI has arrived at CRAFT Flight Training & Simulation in Charleston. We are now offering courses for the Multi-Engine (ME), Multi-Engine Instructor (MEI), Commercial Multi Initial and Air Transport Pilot (ATP) ratings. Find out more about our Multi-Engine courses here.

All of our multi-engine training is conducted in the state-of-the-art, G1000-equipped Diamond DA42-VI and our Redbird Full-Motion Simulator using DA42 controls and G1000 avionics. The ultra-modern, Jet-A burning, Diamond DA42-VI features single-lever, digital controls for each diesel engine, which simplifies single-engine operations and provides a training experience similar to jet aircraft. These digital controls enhance the DA42’s already stellar performance and safety features, providing our customers the very best environment for twin-engine training.

N42MV flies like a dream, sips fuel and is luxurious and comfortable. But the beauty and comfort of this plane is not the key reason that CRAFT has committed to bringing the Diamond platform to Charleston.

SAFETY is our number one priority at CRAFT Flight Training, and the security of Diamond Aircraft is second to none.  Their industry-leading safety record proves it and N42MV is no exception. This aircraft’s composite cabin and safety seats with occupant protection, “FAILSAFE” airframe and wing design, lightning protection system, 3-point safety belts, and Garmin ESP (Electronic Stability Protection) are just a few of the safety features we are excited about.

Come experience the newest addition to the CRAFT Flight Training and Simulation fleet in Charleston!  CRAFT can now get you all of the following ratings: Private, Instrument, Commercial Single, Commercial Multi, Certified Flight Instructor (CFI), Certified Flight Instructor-Instrument (CFI-I), Multi-Engine, Multi-Engine Instructor (MEI), and Airline Transport Pilot (ATP).

The Diamond DA42 is available for instruction only and not available for hourly rental. Contact us today to get started on earning your ME Ratings!
