Premier Aircraft Sales has been selected as the exclusive Diamond Aircraft dealer for territories in the Northeast, Southeast and Central U.S. This announcement makes Premier Aircraft Sales the largest seller of Diamond aircraft in the U.S.
In the Southeast and Central U.S., Premier’s exclusive dealer territory includes: New Mexico, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and Florida. In the Northeast U.S., these states include Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, Maryland, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

To support this new business growth, Premier opened a Diamond Sales and Service Center at Fort Worth Meacham International Airport in May.
“This is good news for general aviation in North America and great news for Diamond and Premier Aircraft customers throughout the world,” said Premier Founder Fred Ahles. “We’ve had a long and successful relationship with Diamond Aircraft since Premier was founded in 2003. This exclusive agreement enables us to expand and better support Diamond’s growing customer base. Our selection shows Diamond’s confidence in our ability to continue growing Diamond business in North America and delivering the absolute best customer service in the industry.”
Since 2003, Premier Aircraft has been the highest volume Diamond aircraft dealer in the world. Premier has sold more than 1,800 aircraft since 2003, with 597 of those sales being new or preowned Diamond aircraft.
“We are excited to announce Premier Aircraft Sales as our Exclusive Diamond Dealer for this critical territory,” said Scott McFadzean, Chief Executive Officer of Diamond Aircraft Industries Inc. “Premier and Diamond have an excellent history of success and it is great to partner with such a world-class sales and service organization again to help take Diamond Aircraft and Premier Aircraft Sales to the next level.”
“We’ll now be supporting approximately 40 percent of aircraft sales and service for Diamond customers,” said Jeff Owen, Vice President of Sales for Premier. “We’ve been without equal in supporting Diamond Aircraft for many years, and this new exclusive dealer agreement better enables us to build on our proven results.”
