Tecnam Names Canadian Sales And Service Dealer


Tecnam has announced that Aviation Unlimited is now its exclusive sales and service dealer for Canada. Based at Toronto Buttonville Airport and with a showroom at Oshawa Executive Airport in Ontario, the company will support Tecnam’s full line of light sport and certified single- and twin-engine aircraft throughout the country.

The first model to be marketed by Aviation Unlimited will be Tecnam’s P2006T MkII four-seat twin, according to a news release. With retractable landing gear, the P2006T MkII is considered an ideal trainer for multi-engine ratings, as well as an affordable personal aircraft for owners with missions involving flight over water or inhospitable terrain. Powered by a pair of Rotax 912SX piston engines, the P2006T MkII features Garmin avionics with two large landscape displays—and an S-Tec 55x two-axis autopilot. Tecnam sees Canada as an ideal market for its light twin, as well as single-engine models.

According to the Italian airframer, “[F]light schools operating Tecnam’s single and twin-engine fleets can save as much as 10 [metric tons] of CO2 emissions for every single student graduated with Commercial Pilot License—a 60 percent reduction compared to fleets using 100LL fuel on a journey of 155 flight hours, 30 hours of which [are flown in a twin].”

Isaac Capua‎, vice-president, Aviation Unlimited, said, “Aviation Unlimited prides itself on being a family company that specializes in high-performance, technically advanced, owner-flown aircraft. The Tecnam brand embodies all of these characteristics and it is one of the most innovative on the market. We believe that the time is right to align incentives and re-capture the Canadian market.”

  1. It’s your website, but reading this I feel like Ralphie after decoding Little Orphan Annie’s secret message…”remember to drink your Ovaltine…”

    Why not “company XYZ provided the following press release ‘…’ ” and leave it at that?

      • I have taken my turns editing various newsletters and publications and the simple fact is that every publisher needs content. Often the content comes in the form of press releases generated by those who want their activities reported. That’s just how it works.

        • I have no problem at all with press releases here – they’re a valuable source of (biased) information. I just wish Avweb would do a better job of providing links in stories like these so readers can review the source content if desired.

  2. No one is in danger of losing out on their Pulitzer and if my clicks are banished or taken elsewhere, all will survive. My point is I want to know when it’s the author’s opinion or the press release’s. In the second para, who is lauding the aircraft as an “ideal trainer”? introducing the press release and stepping away would clarify that and also satisfy the “content” need. Perhaps we should just call it “experimental aviation journalism” and require 51% byline content.

  3. Apparently neat aircraft but of all the potential benefits, they choose to focus on carbon emissions? I guess they just can help themselves from pushing woke, virtue signaling instead of the aviation oriented benefits of the aircraft
