99 KW / 135 HP, rated 100% cruise power, and because it's a turbo you get 100% to around 10.000 ft.

Gliding is, so so, about 10:1

I've spent the last 2 months riding the DA40D (35 hrs pic, 35 hrs co) with std. instruments (no G1000, gladly, don't like it very much, have to put up with it in the DA42 now)

engines won't make the thielert advertised 750 hrs or so, we had to replace the engines in out fleet at around 500-600 hrs max, as oil consumption went up to around a liter an hour (!!!), whereas is should be around 0.1 liter / hr.
