Diamond Aviation was set up in 2009 with the principal aim of providing flight training in the Mediterranean island of Malta. Then known as Diamond Flight Training, the company, soon after its incorporation, was awarded an approval to conduct courses leading to the private pilot’s licence. For this purpose it acquired a fleet of two Diamond aircraft and has since trained numerous students in the field.
With the mindset of acquiring the status of Flight Training Organisation, negotiations were swiftly underway with the Civil Aviation Directorate, a division of Transport Malta. Diamond Aviation is now comprised of Diamond Aviation Limited, which acts as the consultancy and services arm of the group and Diamond Flight School Limited, an approved Flight Training Organisation (FTO).
