09/04/2013 : Tecnam to showcase new aircraft and deliver a series of special General Aviation seminars at Aero 2013, Friedrichshafen
 Tecnam is especially proud to kick-off its 65th anniversary celebrations at Aero 2013, where the star of the Tecnam static display will undoubtedly be the eagerly anticipated revealing of the Tecnam ‘Astore’ next-generation Light Sports Aircraft (LSA).
 
For 65 years Tecnam has built its reputation through the development of innovative, stylish and affordable aeroplanes for all aspects of General Aviation flying. What could be more fitting in this special anniversary year, than for Professor Luigi Pascale, Tecnam’s legendary Head of Aircraft Design, to name his new creation in honour of his and Tecnam’s first production aircraft, The P48 Astore.
 
The Tecnam ‘Astore’ is an all new two seat, low wing aircraft that will be revealed on Wednesday 24 April at 13.00.
 
Another aircraft that Tecnam anticipates will be of great interest to Aero 2013 visitors is the Tecnam ‘Snap’ single seat, aerobatic LSA. Designed as both a fun and sporty plane, pilots of the Tecnam ‘Snap’ enjoy an aerobatic aircraft with a high power to weight ratio (comparable with unlimited aerobatic category airplanes), coupled with low purchasing and operating costs.
 
AERO 2013 Friedrichshafen will see Tecnam display 13 aircraft. These will include an updated version of the Tecnam P2002JF CS/VLA, new offerings of the Tecnam P Twenty-Ten in association with Garmin, a Rotax 912iS powered P2008 as well as the latest version of Tecnam’s best selling twin the P2006T.
 
Also on display will be four versions of the Tecnam P92 including the P92 Classic Light, the 7th generation in the timeless Tecnam P92 range. In over 20 years of service, the Tecnam P92 worldwide fleet now stands at over 2,500 aircraft in both ULM/LSA and VLA categories, with over 200,000 flown hours.
 
Over 35 of Tecnam 60 worldwide dealers will be on site to host visitors and extol the virtues of all things Tecnam.
