SAFA utilizes all Diamond Aircraft Industries DA40 NG & DA42 NG Aircraft for its pilot training programs. These aircraft are powered by modern-day diesel engines, which run on Jet-A fuel, which is available at all airports in the Kingdom, so fuel shortage is never a concern and allows SAFA to continue training without interruption. Additionally, both aircraft are turbocharged and water-cooled so the hot ambient temperatures of the region will allow SAFA’s fleet to stay airborne when other aircraft may be grounded due to poor performance. Combine these features with an all air-conditioned fleet and we hope you recognize a distinct advantage to performing your training with SAFA. Most importantly, SAFA chose the Diamond product line based on safety, performance and the fact that they possess the most modern technology today.

    Safa Aircraft

    SAFA uses all brand new Diamond Aircraft Industries GmbH Aircraft. The DA42 NG has a maximum speed of 178 knots (205 mph) and the DA40 NG is 157 knots (181 mph). Diamond Aircraft airplanes have an industry-leading safety record. All SAFA fleet will all be certificated and registered in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia by the General Authority of Civil Aviation (GACA). Both aircraft are powered by modern-day diesel engines, which run on Jet-A fuel, which is available at all airports in the Kingdom, so fuel shortage is never a concern and allows SAFA to ensure no discontinuing of training due to the unavailability of fuel which plagues other flight schools. Additionally, both aircraft are turbocharged and water-cooled so the hot ambient temperatures of the region will allows allow SAFA’s fleet to stay airborne when other aircraft may be grounded due to poor performance. Combine these features with an all air-conditioned fleet and we hope you recognize a distinct advantage to performing your training with SAFA. Most importantly, SAFA chose the Diamond product line based on safety, performance and the fact that they possess the most modern technology today. SAFA has its own state of the art maintenance facility where our fleet of airplanes will be maintained in accordance with Diamond Aircraft engineering requirements as well as GACA requirements. SAFA will be a Certificated Repair Station in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, so if you choose to buy a Diamond Aircraft, SAFA can provide after sales maintenance support.

    Flight Training Devices (Simulators)

    SAFA utilizes not only advanced aircraft, but the highest quality flight training devices (FTD) as well. SAFA has opted for Diamond Simulation’s FTDs which have been developed through numerous hours of flight testing by pilots and aeronautical engineers to ensure you receive the best training possible. The Level 5 FTD is designed to provide a training platform for both procedures and operations. Just like the real airplane, it is used to simulate all tasks related to ground and flight training towards all certificates and ratings. SAFA has upgraded the cockpit to the same standard as required in the Level 6 FTD, providing you the best opportunity to transfer your newly learned skills to the aircraft. Other than a motion system to physically move the training device platform, our Level 6 FTDs meet the same rigorous certification standards as the most advanced simulators used by the airlines and military. Down to the smallest detail, these FTDs are exactly the same as the real airplane’s instrumentation, controls, and cockpit layout. The devices meet or exceed all applicable aviation regulations; they are so advanced that you can log flight time and complete many of the tasks required for pilot certification, just like you were in a real aircraft. Additionally, SAFA has improved on the basic requirements by adding an advanced visual system that uses 6 projectors instead of the industry standard 3. The reason for this is to improve the visual fidelity and your training experience positively.
