The Diamond DA50 Super Star and DA50 Magnum are Austrian five-place single-engine composite aircraft designed by Diamond Aircraft Industries. Introduced in 2006, the project was later put on hold until the turboprop JP7 variant was introduced in 2015.
The DA50 was unofficially presented in December 2006 at a company Christmas party and is to be able to be operated with gasoline and diesel engines up to 350 hp. The new five seater will have one of the largest cabins of the new generation of general aviation airplanes.
The avgas powered version of the DA50 is to be equipped with a single FADEC-equipped Continental TSIO-550-J powerplant with twin turbo chargers producing 350 hp (261 kW). The plane's wingspan is currently reported as 38', 4", with overall fuselage length of 29 feet. The maximum takeoff weight is planned to be 3,527 lbs. The Diamond DA50 Super Star will be pressurized and offer a Ballistic Recovery Systems aircraft parachute system as an option.
On 19 January 2015 the prototype now designated DA50-JP7 and powered by a Ivchenko-Progress Motor Sich AI-450S turboprop powerplant, was test-flown in Wiener Neustadt. In 2015 type certification was expected near the end of 2016.
At the April 2017 AERO Friedrichshafen show, Diamond launched variants powered by diesel Safran/SMA Engines : the four-seat 230shp DA50-IV; five-seat 260shp DA50-V which was on display, made its first flight in March and is scheduled for certification in 2018; and seven-seat 360shp DA50-VII - also available with a 375shp petrol Lycoming engine or an AI-450S turboprop.
