The Tecnam P2002JF is a two-seat, single engine, low wing aircraft and is firmly established as one of world’s most popular single engine aeroplanes and thr aircraft of choice by so many Flight Training Organisations.
Paolo Pascale, TECNAM Managing Director: “We are delighted that yet another Air Force is choosing Tecnam for its training. We are honored by this choice and the Argentinian Air Force’s appreciation of our commitment to the quality of our products and service.”
Diego Cardama, AEROTEC ARGENTINA Director. “This contract with Air Force is further proof of how well the low maintenance and operational costs and excellent handling and the many other Tecnam benefits are valued by our customers in Argentina.”
Tecnam Installs Lycoming iE2s on P2012 Traveller
Capua – 25 November 2015 – Tecnam announces the successful installation of two Integrated Electronic Engines (iE2) built by Lycoming Engines on its P2012 Traveller test aircraft. Roll-out of this next generation, 11-seats, twin piston engine aircraft is due in February 2016, and its first flight is scheduled for June 2016.
Lycoming’s iE2 engine is the company’s flagship technology. It is an engine and engine control concept designed from the ground up to be electronically controlled. The iE2 system features a continuously optimizing multi-port fuel injection system for optimum power and fuel consumption performance. The electronically controlled system enables operators to realize reduced maintenance costs and increased availability while simultaneously reducing pilot workload. Added to this is the ability of the engine control unit to continuously monitor and report engine performance.
Tecnam has selected a single turbo, non-intercooled configuration of the iE2, designated the TEO-540-C1A. “This configuration provides the P2012 Traveller with the power, durability and efficiency necessary for our first intended use as a passenger airplane,” stated Paolo Pascale, Tecnam Managing Director. “We are pleased with the partnership that has been built between Lycoming and Tecnam to move this project forward,” Pascale said.
“Lycoming’s iE2 was a great fit for Tecnam of Italy’s P2012 application. The selection of iE2 not only assists the P2012 in meeting its performance objectives, but should also prove to be an easier engine to integrate into a modern aircraft. We look forward to supporting Tecnam in bringing the airplane to market,” stated Michael Kraft, Senior Vice President and General Manager of Lycoming Engines.
The Lycoming-powered Tecnam P2012 Traveller is designed to comply with both FAR part 23 and EASA CS-23. The aircraft is currently undergoing extensive testing of its fuselage, wings and empennages.

Garmin G500 flight display system fully certified for Tecnam P Twenty Ten
Tecnam announced today that EASA has fully certified an alternative avionic system for the Tecnam P Twenty Ten based on Garmin G500 glass cockpit suite.
The state of the art Tecnam P Twenty Ten is the first new single engine, high wing, four-seat, Part 23 certified aircraft in many decades as in now in service with Flight Training Organizations in the Czech Republic, France and Poland as well as private owners in the UK and Spain..
The new configuration mainly based on Garmin G500 IFR Suite is the latest cockpit avionics option for the Tecnam P Twenty Ten to be EASA certified, affording customers even more choices and options.
Its enhanced capabilities and expanded features set the G500 glass flight display system ahead of its competitors. Tecnam pilots will experience a faster, more responsive and modernized mapping display, complete with a number of enhancements that bring new capabilities to the P Twenty Ten flight display.
This new configuration includes alongside the Garmin G500 suite an EIS System based on EDM930 unit. Primary Garmin COM/NAV/GPS unit is GTN 650 touchscreen navigator while the secondary COM/NAV source is provided by Garmin GNC 255. GTX 33 remote mode-S XPDR is controlled via GTN 650 touchscreen display. ADF and DME are available as optional NAV aids.
The P Twenty Ten has been extensively flight tested and validated by many independent GA pilots.
Peter Collins, Test Pilot from Flightglobal said “The P2010 impressed me from the outset. It looks, feels and flies like a modern aircraft and does represent a step change in this type of four-seat GA aircraft design. I believe the Tecnam P2010 significantly exceeds the “flyability”, “useability” and “survivability” of the Cessna Skyhawks and Skylanes and equals them on affordability.
The P2010 was genuinely a real pleasure to fly and future owners will be inspired by the aircraft’s combination of advanced avionics, very short field performance, exceptional useful load capability and excellent cross-country range. With new powerplant and propeller options planned after certification, the P2010 has a glittering future ahead of it and is likely to become a best seller in its class and within the Tecnam product range. If I could trade my own Piper Arrow IV Turbo, the P2010 is the aircraft I would buy”.
