Diamond Aircraft has appointed Gemstone Aviation as the sole distributor for the aircraft in the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
Both directors of Gemstone Aviation will be familiar to Diamond aircraft operators: Chris Dawes and Henrik Burkal have worked with Diamond since 2004.
Diamond Aircraft says they were chosen for their vast experience of its aircraft and their reputation in the industry for exceptional customer service.
Henrik Burkal said, “We are very excited for our customers in the UK and Ireland who will have access to the full Diamond Aircraft range.
“We are all about matching the right aircraft to each owner based on their usage needs. This partnership allows us to deliver that better than ever before.”
Chris Dawes added, “Gemstone Aviation focusses on great customer service. We can broker the sales of your existing aircraft to maximise your capital return and then help you buy the right aircraft based on your needs.
“We can manage your new aircraft for you and provide independent advice about registration paperwork, insurance, management and maintenance. As owners, instructors and operators, we understand your issues, risks and opportunities for fun with your aircraft. We will give you unbiased advise at every stage.
Gemstone Aviation is the new UK & Ireland distributor for Diamond aircraft and will soon have a DA62 twin as a demo aircraft.
Henrik Burkal is Director, Sales and Demonstrations. He has had ten years with Diamond Aircraft UK and previously worked with Diamond Aircraft at Air Alpha in 1996/97. Henrik has more than 40 years experience of General and Business Aviation.
Chris Dawes is Director, Operations and Marketing. He was co-founder of DEA Aviation ten years ago, which is an AOC operator and has part 145 maintenance of Diamond Aircraft.
Chris has supplied microlights, hangliders, paragliders and equipment through Airways Airsports in the sports aviation sector for over 25 years, and has been an owner and pilot of a Diamond Aircraft since 1995.
Amila Spiegel, Sales & Marketing Director of Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH, said, “The UK-Ireland market represents an important General Aviation market in Europe and we are more than excited and happy to have found the right partner with Gemstone Aviation who is representing our values and goals.
“Gemstone Aviation will soon receive their DA62 demonstrator and will boost our sales performance in the UK and Ireland,”
