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.
