We are steadily progressing with work on the DT-6, and that’s all the update we will provide for now. We are treating the project with a special kind of discretion.... this portion of the build will remain dark until the aircraft is ready for the record flights.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 2/19/2018
DIMENSION 3 INDUSTRIES AND TRIANO RACING ENTER A NEW ERA
Dave Triano and Josh Phillipson are pleased to announce a new era of cooperation between Dimension 3 Industries and Triano Racing.
‘As of March 1, 2018 Dimension 3 Industries will begin the production of the tooling for the Triano Racing DT-6 aircraft. Josh’s commitment to the creation of accurate, state-of-the-art components has been proven by his acquisition of the Biesse Rover ‘A’ CNC Machining Center, which will enable production of the 30+ molds and plugs designed for the DT6’, stated Dave Triano. ‘We are beginning production of the high-accuracy, Class-A finish tooling immediately, with techniques previously not used in the general aviation industry. We are combining my own 22+ years of experience designing advanced composite vehicles and tooling with Josh’s exceptional production capabilities to build the DT6.’
Triano Marine Design offers advanced design services for the Aerospace, Marine, and Automotive industries, from concept exploration to CFD iterative simulation and finished production tooling. The new cooperative agreement with Dimension 3 Industries allows complete product development in a one-stop environment. Groundbreaking new design concepts can now be brought to fruition with innovation, efficiency, and real scientific advance. Dimension 3 Industries is quickly becoming the leader in specialty air racing and experimental aircraft components, many of which are being designed by Triano Racing.
‘The clear focus of my work at Dimension 3 Industries is to create the finest quality advanced composite components available. This cooperative agreement with Triano Racing will provide a completely integrated design-to-production solution for our clients, and allow us to push into new and uncharted territory. The DT-6 aircraft will set new standards of speed, composite engineering, and aerodynamics, and we are proud to be selected to produce this amazing aircraft’ said Josh Phillipson.
