written by australianaviation.com.au | September 5, 2012

Flight Training Adelaide has purchased two more Diamond DA42-L360 aircraft as it prepares to accept additional students from Cathay Pacific, QantasLink and Virgin Australia, the school said.

The aircraft, ordered from Hawker Pacific will join a fleet of seven DA42-L360s and four DA40-CS aircraft. The academy is expecting delivery of four more DA40s at the end of 2012 and has options on 18 additional aircraft over the next two years.

The two additional DA42s are scheduled for delivery in the first quarter of 2013.

Inside The Archive: F/A-18A/B Classic Hornet Comment

  • Bill


    It was mentiond earlier in this piece by, Air Marshal Mel Hupfeld, that the FA-18 Hornet replaced the Mirage fighters. I thought the F-111 ‘Ardvark’ replaced the Mirage jets around 1967 till 1999 such as the Raaf 6th squadron. If my memory serves me correct the aircraft served our country well until they were superseded by the Hornets, which by the way are an exceptional fighter also.
