DA42 engine failure during take-off demo

Diamond Aircraft demonstrate a engine failure after take-off (EFATO) in its multi engine DA42NG aircraft. The single engine flight characteristics were conducted with cutting the engine at various heights, starting from 50ft down to rotation. A successful land-back was demonstrated in all instances, with a subsequent demonstration of a safe continued flight after an engine failure at 50ft.

All engine failures had docile handling characteristics and required no exceptional piloting skill.
