Wayman Aviation Academy Modernizes Training Fleet
Wayman Aviation first step to fleet modernization with Tecnam P2006T.
Sebring (FL) – Tecnam announced today, the delivery of the first Tecnam’s P2006T to Wayman Aviation Academy for its fleet modernization program.
Wayman Aviation Academy chose this modern twin engine to improve the MEP training and updating their twin fleet with the most efficient and versatile aircraft of its category for Multi – IFR training.
The P2006T has been chosen after a careful evaluation to increase multi-engine aircraft reliability. It’s Rotax engine will cut fuel burn by two-thirds and the carbon footprint of training by two-thirds.
In addition, the transition from their single-engine trainers to the P2006T offers Wayman’s students a platform that contributes to a more seamless move up platform to earn their multi-engine ratings.
The aircraft acceptance in Sebring, assisted by Flightline Group, the authorized Tecnam dealer for Florida, and subsequent Official Delivery to Wayman Aviation Academy and their Student body that is now 300 strong, was a great milestone for Tecnam and Wayman. “We are excited to train the next generation of international airline pilots in the Tecnam P2006T,” said Eddy Wayman, Wayman Aviation Academy Vice President.
David Copeland, TECNAM’s U.S. Director of Sales said “This first P2006T is just a first step for a long-term partnership with Wayman Aviation Academy. Tecnam is not selling aircraft but offering modern, smart and green solutions to Flight Schools across the US and Canada. Together with Wayman we are proud to be innovating the flight training paradigm in Florida.”
Flightline Group’s Chairman Mac Langston added, “This delivery marks a major milestone for Wayman Aviation Academy that underscores their commitment to providing their students with state-of-the-art, efficient, technically advanced aircraft. Wayman’s future is bright!”
