Clarification on the DA424M-NG Diamond plane

Jun 10, 2018

With reference to media reports pertaining to a police report involving the Sarawak Forestry Department for an alleged purchase of a ‘DA424M-NG Diamond’ plane worth RM35 million, it was stated that it is undergoing testing by the Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM). We would like to categorically state that this is incorrect.

MAVCOM has not had any communications with the Sarawak Forestry Department and is not responsible for the technical testing of aircraft as stated in these news reports. MAVCOM is an independent body that regulates economic and commercial matters relating to civil aviation.

MAVCOM’s goal is to promote a commercially viable, consumer-oriented and resilient aviation industry that supports the nation’s economic growth.

Technical regulations for civil aviation falls under the Civil Aviation Act 1969 which is not within MAVCOM’s purview.
