Tecnam’s Twin Now U.S. Certified

  • Mary Grady

Italy-based Tecnam has certified its roomy four-seat twin-engine P2006T for the U.S. market. The Rotax engines can operate on standard auto fuel, helping to reduce the operating costs of the twin to just about the same as single-engine airplanes with similar performance. For pilots who fly often over open water or remote terrain, that second engine can provide a sense of security not afforded by single-engine airplanes, even those with full-aircraft parachutes. The light twin comes with retractable gear, and a fixed-gear version is in the works. Fully equipped, with a Garmin glass panel, the P2006T sells for $520,000. (877.359.4682, www.tecnam.net)
