Work on the design of Diamond D-Jet aircraft began in 2003 year, with Austrian aircraft manufacturers planning to develop an aircraft suitable not only for commercial use but also for private purposes, which mainly had to speak in a very attractive price, part of the time of the sale order 1,9 million, compared to other aircraft, it is advantageous to a great extent.

After three years of development, in April 2006 years, the plane Diamond D-Jet performed its first flight, however, is not fully satisfied the management Aircraft Company, in connection with what was sent back for revision, which was more for three, years, after which, it was officially announced the end of the development and subsequent serial production of the aircraft.

At the moment the plane Diamond D-Jet is seen as a means of business aviation, and it is the main sector in which is carried out at the moment operation of the aircraft - for the majority of private owners of the aircraft cost and its flight performance has not proved to be appropriate, in connection with which demand for that aircraft has not so much as expected at the beginning of its production.

Depending on the layout of the cabin, the aircraft can accommodate from 3 to 5 people, including the pilot and 2-4 passenger, and, aircraft interior finished with usually, depending on the immediate needs of the customer (there are three standard design variants) including on individual style and type.

The Williams FJ33-4A-19 turbofan aircraft engine, used in the aircraft as a power plant, is capable of developing a thrust of 8,5 kN, which is quite enough for transporting 5 people on board, and covering distances of up to 2500 kilometers at a cruising speed of 444 km \ h. Among other things, after the completion of the development, it was supposed to develop another, more powerful modification of this aircraft, however, due to the expected significant increase in cost, the design work was closed.

As of mid-2015 years, 6 aircrafts of this model were built, including also three prototypes produced during the development phase, with production of aircraft continues to this day, though in fact, orders for the model of Diamond D-Jet are absent - for some information, the company manages to produce about 1-2 aircraft per year.
