Following its recent EASA certification, Tecnam today announced that first three Tecnam P2008JC CS/VLA single engine aeroplanes have been delivered to launch customer Aero-Club Air France.
Tecnam anticipates immediate delivery of further P2008JC’s to the Czech Republic, Germany, Poland and Switzerland, to customers who had already pre-ordered what will undoubtedly be yet another bestselling Tecnam aeroplane.
Aero-Club Air France ordered 12 Tecnam P2008JC’s which will it aims to distribute amongst four of its affiliated groups:
• Aeroclub Air France Lognes
• Aéroclub Aéroport de Paris
• Aéroclub Marne la Vallée
• Aéroclub Air France Toulouse
The Aeroclub Air France P2008JC CS/VLA VFR night equipped aeroplanes will be used for initial training purposes.
With fuselage and vertical fin made of the latest technology carbon fiber prepeg, its metals wings and stabilator, the Tecnam P2008JC has a vast number of advantages over traditional aircraft. This combination of both composite material and metal has resulted in a more fuel efficient and much quieter aircraft.
The state of the art Tecnam P2008JC CS/VLA is equipped with the Garmin G3X glass cockpit and full electronic flight display screens rather than the traditional knobs and dials seen on typical aircraft instrument panels. Its versatility and ease of use has established it as both the aircraft of choice for Flight Training Organisations worldwide as well as recreational flyers.
“The Tecnam team and I are extremely proud that Aero-Club Air France selected the P2008JC CS/VLA to undertake their initial flight training activities said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s Managing Director. “With the P2008JC now fully EASA certified, we look forward to announcing further significant orders, particularly from Flight Training Organisations soon.”
