Aircraft's twin-engine P2006T.
July 27, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin - Tecnam
Aircraft introduced its newest aircraft - the twin-engine P2006T - to the U.S.
market today on AeroShell Square.
The P2006T is a high-wing, four-seat, light
twin-engine airplane with retractable landing gear, full feathering
constant speed propellers, and an optional all glass avionics cockpit.
Powered by FAR 33 certified Rotax 912S engines, the aircraft can operate
on auto fuel and has a fuel burn at cruise of 10 gph.
Lynne Bermingham of Tecnam Aircraft
(Marietta, Georgia), the U.S. distributor for the parent Italian company,
said Tecnam believes the P2006T will energize the flight training market.
"This airplane is economical to fly and economical to maintain. It's
all aluminum to make maintenance easier. And, its single-engine
performance characteristics are significant."
The aircraft has been flying in the
European marketplace for the past year, and Bermingham said Tecnam will be
ready to make U.S. deliveries in six to eight months. Price ranges from
just over $400,000 for an analog panel to $500,000 for an all-glass Garmin
You can see the P2006T fly at about 3 p.m.
today, following the arrival of WhiteKnightTwo.
