TECNAM P2012 TRAVELLER S/N 002 ACHIEVES FIRST FLIGHT MILESTONE

Tecnam announced the successful first flight of a second P2012 Traveller aircraft occurred on December 22nd. Serial number 002 will be configured as the “Conforming Production Aircraft’ and will be the template for all P2012 customer production 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 001 first flew on 21 July 2016. Since the maiden flight, the prototype has accumulated more than 250 flight test hours.

Serial number 002 further facilitates the Tecnam Flight Test & Development teams ability to stay on track for both EASA and FAA certification during 2018, thereby enabling deliveries to commence in 2019.

The 11-seat P2012 Traveller is equipped with latest avionics from Garmin, the new G1000 Nxi and powered by two 375 HP Lycoming piston engines. The Tecnam P2012 Traveller will enter revenue service with US based Cape Air in early 2019 with the delivery of the first of 100 aircraft ordered.

The Traveller has been designed from the start to be a very versatile and flexible aerial platform, offering multi role opportunities including VIP, cargo, parachuting, medevac and amphibious.

We are pleased to have achieved this significant milestone. The tremendous worldwide interest and demand for the P2012 keeps us focused on staying on track with the development and certification program.” said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s CEO.
