AOPA News: DiamondShare offers new take on sharing an airplane at Sun ‘n Fun!
Three Diamond Aircraft devised have devised a program that may put a brand-new, four-seat aircraft within reach of many pilots who, for now, can only dream of owning a 2013 DA40 XLT (or XLS).
DiamondShares has been quietly working for about five years to refine Diamond dealer John Armstrong’s ownership-membership concept into a turn-key package that eases the burden of buying a $420,000 machine, by sharing ownership costs but not the equity.
“The difference between members and equity is night and day,” Armstrong said
