Clarity partners Ben Walton and Bryan O'Leary were on hand to accept the aircraft from Martin Scherrer from Diamond Airborne Sensing. The DA42 MPP GUARDIAN is the new generation of the twin engine Diamond surveillance and mapping aircraft that utilizes innovative and fuel-efficient Austro Diesel engines and burns only 7 gallons per hour while patrolling.

Clarity partner Loren Poulsen, Ph.D. comments, "After we received such an overwhelming response to this aircraft from our customers, we recognized that we needed to immediately purchase our first aircraft to get ahead of demand. There is really no other certified aircraft that offers so much capability at such a low cost to purchase and operate. We are confident that this aircraft will go on contract shortly."

Diamond Airborne Sensing Head of Sales for North America, Martin Scherrer says, "This is a great commitment by Clarity Aerial Sensing to the DA42 MPP aircraft and our partnership. It also demonstrates our joint effort in marketing the system to government and civilian customers, and the enthusiastic response we have received in just a few short months."

Clarity Chief Pilot Ben Walton, "The DA42 is a wonderful aircraft to fly, we have now demonstrated this aircraft to a number of organizations and our most common response has been "I love this aircraft". When you combine the twin-engine-digital control reliability, significant fuel savings with the silenced engines it can't be beat."
