The Diamond HK36 is a modern low-wing single-engine piston motorglider. It is often used for towing gliders and recreational cross-country flights. Its - for a motorglider - relatively low glide ratio of about 1:27, comparable to 1960's training gliders like the Schleicher ASK 13, is the reason why it is normally mostly used in powered flight mode, making thermal flights as common with other motorgliders rather seldom.

In FlightGear, the TTC variant, equipped with a turbocharged 115 horsepower Rotax 914 (F4), is simulated.

Flying the DA40

The flight manual is available from Diamond Aircraft and is highly suggested to be read before flight.
