About TECNAM; “Quality Aircraft since 1948”

TECNAM’s roots go all the way back to the Italian brothers Luigi and Giovanni Pascale who began to develop and produce innovative aircraft soon after the end of WWII. Since those early beginnings, the family has continued to create original models, first gaining worldwide recognition under the name Partenavia, which translates as ” Naples Aviation”. Costruzioni Aeronautiche TECNAM was established in March 1986 and now operates in three production facilities. The Casoria facility is located adjacent to Naples’ Capodichino Airport while the main factory is next to the “Oreste Salomone” Airport in Capua. Recently a new facility was established in Sebring, Florida, USA to serve and support the needs of Tecnam’s North American-based owners and operators.

TECNAM P2012 ‘Traveller” S/N 002 ASSEMBLY COMPLETED

Tecnam announced today completion of the assembly of second P2012 Traveller aircraft.

The arrival into service of the next-generation 11 seat P2012 Traveller is highly anticipated by airlines who have been demanding a replacement for the many hundreds of ‘heritage’ aeroplanes in the FAR23/CS23 category currently in service around the world.

 

P2012 serial number 1 first flew on 21 July 2016. Since the maiden flight, the prototype has accumulated more than 100 flight test hours. P2012 serial number 2 enables the Tecnam Flight Test & Development team to stay on track for both EASA and FAA certification during 2018, which turn enables deliveries to commence in 2019. Serial number 2 will  configured as a “Conforming Production Aircraft’, will be the template for P2012 customer production aircraft.

 

With a list price of €2,200,000 (subject to Economic Price Adjustment) a deposit of just $100,000 US currently affords potential customers delivery positions in 2019 and critically the unique opportunity to freeze the price of the aircraft they order.

The twin Lycoming-engined 11-seat P2012 Traveller prototype took centre stage on Tecnam’s stand at Aero ’17 in Friedrichshafen, Germany earlier this year.

 

Equipped with latest avionics from Garmin, the new G1000 Nxi and powered by two 375 HP Lycoming piston engines, the Tecnam P2012 Traveller will first see service as a passenger aeroplane with US based Cape Air in early 2019, but has been designed from the start to be a very versatile and flexible aerial platform, offering m multi role opportunities including VIP, cargo, parachuting, medevac and amphibious.

 

We are  delighted with the progress we have achieved to date in the development of the eagerly anticipated P2012. This next- generation aeroplane will deliver to operators not only profits, but reliability, efficiency and off course passenger comfort. The Tecnam design team have answered all these customer needs with the P2012 Traveller. We feel we are contributing to real innovation in aviation! ” said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s CEO.
