Origins[ edit ] Diamond DA20 with Diamond Engines Wankel In , a new company, Hoffmann Flugzeugbau , was formed in Austria with the aim of becoming a major aircraft manufacturer for general aviation purposes. It was decided to develop a new two-seat aircraft, later designated as the DV20 Katana, using the earlier and successful Diamond HK36 Dimona as a basis. In particular, it had a reduced wingspan, was equipped with flaps , and made use of a tricycle landing gear arrangement. The C1 model featured several advances, including the adoption of a new engine in the form of the Rotax , which was more powerful and provided the plane with greater performance as a result; other improvements included increased comfort, the adoption of slotted-flaps, and an improved braking capability.
