Follow the Diamondo Earthrounding journey as they prepare for their mission to circle the world in a Diamond DA50 RG with a Continental® CD-300 engine. They chose this aircraft/engine combination to help them demonstrate how aviation can become more sustainable using readily available technologies.
The CD-300 engine allows the DA50 RG to use readily available heavy fuels. The engine runs efficiently in lean mode, saving gallons of fuel along the way and extending the range. The earthrounding crew attended our factory training course at our St. Egidien location to learn more about the Jet-A engine. Check out their YouTube video to see how they are preparing for this mission.
