Tecnam Updates Its Fleet
Along with showing off its P2012 twin-prop commuter plane, Tecnam unveiled a slew of new features and updates for its fleet at the Aero Friedrichshafen show in Germany this week. The P2006T twin, the company’s top-selling airplane with 200 flying, now comes with the Garmin G1000 Nxi next-generation flight deck, ADS-B Out as a standard feature, and a new seat design. The latest version of the P2002 LSA will feature the Rotax 915 iS/iSC 135-HP engine, which offers full takeoff power up to at least 15,000 feet and a service ceiling of 23,000 feet.
Also at Aero, the company said the four-seat P2010 now is available with the Lycoming IO-390 engine and a VP prop. Weighing in at 315 pounds, the IO-390 delivers 215 HP at 2,700 RPM. The G1000 Nxi flight deck is now available as an option, and ADS-B Out now is standard in the P2010. Tecnam also opened up the order book for the new P2012 commuter, and said they would take deposits for the $2.3 million airplane.
