The Diamond HK36 TTC Super Dimona is a two-seat single engine low-wing motor-glider.
HOAC-Austria Flugzeugwerk began in 1989 with the development of the HK36 Super Dimona a
two-seat powered glider made of fibre-reinforced high-tech composite based on the Hoffmann H36 Dimona.
Series production of the HK36 Super Dimona began in 1990. The Super Dimona is equipped with Rotax engines
with either the 80 hp 912S; the 100 hp 912S or the 115 hp turbo-charged 914 variant and is commonly used for glider pilot training
and towing. In 1996, the company was renamed into Diamond Aircraft Industries. In the USA and Canada, the Diamond HK36 TTC Super Dimona
is known as Katana X-treme series. A surveillance derivate is the ECO Dimona, known as Multi Purpose Xtreme in Canada, which is equipped
with a movable Wescam camera and cockpit monitor. Over 900 Super Dimona aircraft are built so far.
Vliegclub Hoogeveen (VCH) operates 9 gliders. The towing of their gliders is done by Super Dimona TTC 115 motorgliders
of the "Stichting Motorzweefexploitatie Nederland". Both, the Vliegclub Hoogeveen and the smen, are based at
Hoogeveen airfield in the Netherlands. Super Dimona HK36 TTC PH-1224 is one of the motor-gliders of the smen equipped
