The order placed during AERO Friedrichshafen

Capua, Italy. Tecnam announced today that ‘FlyBy’, Spain’s leading General Aviation Flight Training Organisation has placed an order for an additional ten (10) Tecnam P2008JC and two (2) new P2006T NG. These will supplement their existing fleet of 31 aircraft. It is actually the largest order from the Spanish ATO that keeps growing steady. In fact, new orders are scheduled for 2025.

Current FlyBy’s fleet includes:

  • 8 P2008JC
  • 3 P2006T
  • 3 P2002JF
  • 2 P mentors

 

The new TECNAM P2006T NG (Next Generation) is the result of more than 300 improvements of the current P2006T MkII. Pilots now benefit from an additional front door for the co-pilot and external access to the baggage compartment. Windows have also been redesigned and made larger to improve visibility.

The powerplant is now provided by twin fuel injected Rotax9121Sc3 engines, offering high altitude efficiency and reduced fuel consumption of 14 lt/hr (3.7 USG/h) per engine.

The wing position and anti-collision lights are integrated into the winglets and equipped with state-of-the-art LED technology. This not only enhances efficiency, style, and visibility but also offers a more eco-friendly and durable lighting solution.

The interior has also undergone major improvements, with a central console that houses the FMS GCU477 keyboard for efficient management of all Garmin avionics, including the GFC700 3-axis autopilot, and the G1000 NXi, which offers an intuitive pilot interface with total connectivity between the tablet and the cockpit with the innovative Garmin Flight Stream avionics system.

Tecnam also offers a super-premium version: the P2006 NG SPORT. This version features an all-Italian design, pure luxury on every flight: black leather dashboard with soft LED lights, carbon-look panels, yokes and central console covered in leather, every detail meticulously designed and handcrafted. The cabin features Alcantara headliners, plush moquette seats, leather side walls and side panels with carbon look logos.

With its carbon-fibre fuselage, metal wings and stabilator, the Tecnam P2008JC has a vast number of advantages over traditional aircraft. This combination of both composite material and metal has resulted in a more fuel-efficient and much quieter aircraft.

The Tecnam P2008JC MkII version features a number of significant enhancements. Among these are a new avionics suite, including a new design of both the dashboard and glare shield, thereby enabling the introduction of the Garmin’s innovative G3X Touch display with a MD302 attitude instrument, also available as VFR Night.
