    This is a 2008 Diamond DA40 XLS , manufactured in London Ont. Canada. It is powered by a 180 HP Lycoming IO-360-MIA+ engine and burns (at cruise) about 8.5 gallons per hour. Each wing tank (there are two) has a 25 gallon capacity which works out to about a 5 hour endurance. Our normal cruise speed is about 130 KIAS which is about 150 MPH. This airplane is equipped with Garman G1000 (Glass Panel) for all navigation and flight information. It also has an integrated auto pilot and instrument landing capabilities. Some more interesting features are the Terrain Awareness System, the Satellite Data Link-Weather and XM entertainment , and the Synthetic Vision.
