Pioneers in Aviation

The Spirit of Innovation

Developing and building a family of aircraft takes a long-term commitment and an unwavering vision – it’s not for the faint of heart. Diamond not only has the vision and resources, but an owner who embodies the spirit of innovation. With the passion of an accomplished pilot, and the vision of a successful entrepreneur, Christian Dries has led Diamond Aircraft’s growth from building only a single motor glider to offering general aviation’s most innovative and diverse family of personal and business aircraft. The growth of the Diamond Aircraft family exemplifies his personal commitment to delivering aircraft that pilots want.

Diamond Aircraft’s mission and vision of innovation in aviation, modernization, and safety align perfectly with Apollo Aviation’s vision and mission to be the most innovative, forward thinking flight training organization in the industry. This makes Diamond Aircraft the obvious choice for Apollo Aviation’s aircraft fleet.
