The two aircraft are now undergoing mission system installation for their entry in service.

CAPUA – Tecnam announced today that has completed the production of two P2012 Sentinel Special Mission Platform that are now ready for mission system installation.
The two aircraft completed factory acceptance flights in December 2022 in Tecnam headquarters in Capua, and, starting January 2023, are now undergoing mission system installation for their entry in service.

After a rigorous evaluation process, the undisclosed customer, has specifically chosen the P2012 Sentinel to replace his ageing fleet of BN2 Defenders.
The main drivers for the P2012 selection among other special mission platforms were the twin engine design, latest avionics, wide and constant cabin section, two full size hatches, generous mission power, superior payload allowance and low acquisition and operating costs.

The aircraft configuration with two crew doors and a main cabin door, combined to the high cabin volume and payload allows for optimal mission system installation with plenty of space for sensors, equipment racks, and operators consoles.

A P2012 Sentinel equipped with full mission equipment, allows room for up to seven crew members (pilots, operators, observers, and mission commanders) and at its maximum takeoff weight of 3680 kg, provides up to 9 hours’ endurance.

The P2012 twin-engine design guarantees an exhaust-free field of view to the sensors, granting increased accuracy and “noise-free” operations and a carbon-monoxide-free cabin that will enhance the safety of the crew members.
