AT SUN ‘N FUN AEROSPACE EXPO, TECNAM HANDED OVER TO KENAI AVIATION A P2012 TRAVELLER FOR THEIR SCHEDULED SERVICE IN ALASKA
Sun ‘n Fun Aerospace Expo, Lakeland, FL, Tecnam announced today the handover of a P2012 Traveller to the Alaska based Company Kenai Aviation.
Tecnam’s innovative and modern design of an aircraft built with commuter passengers in mind will allow Kenai Aviation to bring the comfort and luxury of modern amenities and ergonomic design into their service in Alaska providing a high level of service to their communities.
Comfortably accommodating nine passengers with one or two crew, the Traveller is a new-generation, turbocharged piston-powered, twin-engine, high- wing, fixed-landing-gear aircraft. The introduction into the Kenai Aviation fleet provides their customers with cost-effective and varied configuration options, whilst always offering experiences that discerning travellers expect, such as premium interiors, in-seat power, higher class leg room and under-seat storage space.
The TKS de-ice capabilities and the rugged design of the aircraft will allow Kenai to provide reliable and on time service to the communities through the challenging weather environment of Alaska.
