Ryan bought this Diamond Star DA40-XL new from the factory back in 2006 to finish his flight training. Since then, he has put nearly 1,100 hours on the airplane. With life getting in the way and less time in the air, it was time to move on from the Diamond and into a smaller commitment as a partial owner of a Cirrus SR-22 G6; the perfect next step for his ownership career!
While on a tight scheduled to bring this Diamond Star back to it’s new home with Steel Aviation, we were faced with two long travel days, pop-up storms all over the country and lots of actual IFR time for the logbook. Here is a gallery of pictures from along the way!
