A $20,000 deposit will secure a delivery slot for the D-Jet, a proposed five-seat, all-composite single-engine jet that Diamond Aircraft hopes to fly next year, certify in 2006 and sell for $850,000. Engine and avionics suppliers have yet to be announced. The company, with facilities in London, Ontario, and Wiener Neustadt, Austria, currently builds composite single- and twin-engine piston aircraft.
