NYLON – Rochester’s small, locally owned aviation company and flight instruction group announced that a new luxury airplane now joins its fleet.
According to a press release from OnCore Aviation, LLC, a Diamond DA-62 aircraft arrived at their facility, operated out of the JetSmart Aviation Services hangars on Scottsville Road, Rochester. The new addition to their rapidly expanding fleet is exciting and motivating to early aviation students, established executives requiring the ease and efficiency of private air transportation and those simply desiring an additional method of recreational travel.
“We are excited to have the Diamond DA62 here in Rochester. This aircraft is fresh off the line from Canada and was brought here with the help of LifeStyle Aviation and Diamond Aircraft,” said Michele Herrmann, who owns and operates OnCore. “Our team at OnCore Aviation strives to bring modern aircraft and modern flight training and experiences to our Western New York aviation community.”
In April 2016, OnCore launched with one, single engine aircraft, a Diamond DA-40 XLS. Since April 2016, OnCore has expanded their fleet to meet the needs and demands of their growing clientele. The Diamond DA-40 was added in November, allowing OnCore to continue meeting the needs of their rapidly growing network of aviation customers and students, as well as propelling the OnCore management to move towards their next possible addition, the Diamond DA-62, a seven-place, luxury twin-piston airplane featuring the Garmin G1000.
“Learning to fly in a Diamond is unlike any other experience,” said private pilot Tom Jacobs. “This powerful, fast, and famously safe airplane is decked out with the latest technology, Garmin G1000 avionics, unmatched situational awareness and world class luxury. This isn’t your average Cessna 172. It’s faster, more efficient, and possesses superior engineering. I have always been impressed by Diamond’s impressive safety record.”
The aircraft will be available for viewing and exploration at the OnCore Aviation facilities located at JetSmart Aviation Services, 1205 Scottsville Road, Rochester, NY.
OnCore Aviation, LLC was founded less than a year ago by three local aviation enthusiasts that saw a need for a different type of aviation experience in Rochester, NY. A large segment of the aviation market was looking for a fresh and upgraded experience that worked with their already demanding lifestyle and would provide a higher degree of luxury and comfort.
As Managing Partner of OnCore, Herrmann brings over 10 years in the aviation industry to the table and is the Finger Lakes Group Drug Demand Reduction Officer of the Civil Air Patrol.
