Later that year the 135hp (100kW) engine became the sole option on the DA40's twin-engined sibling, the DA42 Twin Star.</P> <P> <TABLE style="WIDTH: 445px" cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=0 align=center border=0> <TBODY> <TR> <TH> <H6 align=right><IMGhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Thielerts-mission-to-get-GA-running-on-diesel-213184/
