Tecnam announced today that the Argentinian Air Force has ordered eight (8) Tecnam P2002JF single seat training aircraft for its Military Aviation Academy.
Local Tecnam distributor AEROTEC ARGENTINA SA was awarded the contract to supply the Tecnam fleet to the Argentinian Air Force under a lease purchase agreement. The aircraft will be assembled at AEROTEC ARGENTINA S.A’s Rivadavia, Mendoza Province facility under agreement with COSTRUZIONI AERONÁUTICHE TECNAM SRL.
During the first quarter of 2016, the Argentinian Air Force initiated technical studies to incorporate a new simple trainer “screener” aircraft as the first flying step of its Military Aviation Academy.
With all Tecnam models already certified by the Argentina Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC), and with more than 30 brand new Tecnam aircrafts already delivered to private owners, aero clubs and flight schools, the Argentinian Air Force selected the glass cockpit, night VFR version of the P2002JF.
