TWIN
P2006T
The Tecnam P2006T Next-Generation twin is in a class of its own, bringing affordable multi-engine flying to aero-clubs, flying schools, syndicates and private aircraft owners.

In addition, the P2006T has sparked significant interest on a larger scale for charter/air-taxi usage as well as a platform for surveillance and observation for government usage.

The P2006T offers unbeatable value, coupled with low operating and ownership costs, innovative design and Italian styling.

The Rotax '912S' engine (plus the option of a Garmin glass cockpit) allows the Tecnam P2006T to lead with respect to the environment too. With both a remarkable fuel saving offering and much lower noise emissions, it is redefining both the flight training and aircraft ownership experience in one step.

Deliveries started during AERo 2012 in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
Construction
top document
 
Tecnam P2006T is a twin-engine four-seat aircraft with fully retracting landing gear. The superior high-wing configuration offers stability, superior cabin visibility and easy access for passengers and luggage. Tecnam has used its extensive experience with aluminum airframes to create in the Tecnam P2006T a robust yet very light airframe, resulting in an outstanding payload-to-total-weight ratio.

Wings are of traditional construction, essentially mono spar configuration. Integral fuel tanks are located outboard of the engines holding 100 liters each for a total of 200 liters. A laminar NACA 63A airfoil of moderate thickness has been selected for the semi-tapered wing platform. This offers low drag and good high altitude behavior.

Wide slot aluminum flaps, electrically controlled, allow stall speeds lower than 48 kts. These flaps offer potential for very steep approaches and short landings. Fraise ailerons allow aggressive roll rates with minimal adverse yaw. Aileron control is via internal cabin cable linked to push-rods in the wing leading edges.

Particular attention was paid to the cabin's structural design in order to ensure the required crashworthiness prescribed in recent amendments to the FAA-FAR23 and EASA-CS23 codes. Fuselage structure, seats and seatbelts combine to protect occupants in case of a hard landing. The Tecnam P2006T's conformity to such safety requirements has been proven during dynamic tests (reaching forward load factors up to 26g) carried out by a certified laboratory.

The horizontal tail is an all-moving type, designed for remarkable longitudinal control-free stability and excellent control authority. A wide trim-tab, part of the stabilator trailing edge, doubles as an antitab device. The cable-type pitch trim is controlled by a wheel located between the pilots' seats and is fitted with a position indicator. As with most of the aircraft body, the horizontal stabilator and the vertical fins are metallic. The rudder features an electronically controlled trim-tab with a position indicator situated on the instrument panel
 
Interior And Outdoor

The generous interior dimensions of the Tecnam P2006T allow maximum space for pilots and passengers alike. With its two doors, its upholstered seats complete with headrests and vertical adjustment, the cabin provides great flexibility for pilots of varying physical stature to optimize their comfort.

Each seat is provided with three-point seat belts with inertia reel and the two Pilots' seats are equipped with a central armrest. Specific care has been given to cabin interiors and acoustic comfort.

The ventilation system features one vent outlet for each occupant. The heating system uniformly warms the cabin and a defrost manifold prevents the windshield from fogging even while taxiing. Wide and appropriate windows, together with the high wings, provide excellent visibility for a very pleasant flight, as well as for safe ground operations.

The cabin has a spacious luggage compartment of 350 liters, which is easily accessible from an external door.
 
Landing Gear
top document
 


The retractable landing gear mechanism of the Tecnam P2006T is of an electro-hydraulic type, powered by a reversible pump, which is electrically controlled. The main landing gear is of a trailing link type, completely constructed from high strength aluminum alloys and 15CDV6 high strength steel, and is directly attached to the fuselage main bulkheads. An oleo-pneumatic shock absorber provides excellent ground load absorption. The main landing gear retraction is very simple through a 90° inboard rotation. The gear strut and the wheel are contained in the retracted position by the fuselage centre section baggand a side pod. The main gear of the Tecnam P2006T is held in position by an aluminum side brace, which also serves as the retraction mechanism operated by a hydraulic ram.

The main landing gear is equipped with Cleveland wheels (6.00-6) and rudder pedal activated brakes. The nose landing gear features a 5.00-5 wheel and telescopic strut with an oleo-pneumatic shock absorber. It is linked to the cabin's first bulkhead through a steel truss.

The gear extension of the Tecnam P2006T is speed-wise for higher safety and is operated by a hydraulic ram through the drag brace, which in turn locks it into the down position. When extended, the steering control on the nose gear is actuated by push-rods linked to the rudder pedals.

A system of lights and warning horn informs the pilot of the status of the landing gear's extended/retracted position. A back-up extension system, ensures landing gear extension even in the event of main system failure.
 
Engine And Propeller
top document
 
The Tecnam P2006T is equipped with two four-cylinder four-stroke Rotax 912S engines of 100hp (73kW) each. These are liquid cooled with an integrated reduction gear (1:2.4286) driving constant speed propellers with pitch feathering devices.

Engine mounts are made of high strength Cr-Mo Steel tubes with engine vibration isolators. Very easy and convenient access to the engine compartment allows for fast daily inspections. From an operational point of view, the following benefits of the Tecnam P2006T should be stressed:

  • The option to use either automotive fuel or AVGAS allows operators to dramatically reduce the direct costs, making it possible to fly to locations where AVGAS is difficult to obtain or prohibitively expensive.
  • The twin-engine configuration of the Tecnam P2006T is extremely dependable, enabling the aircraft to travel long over water distances or over rough terrain.
  • The fuel system features two fuel tanks integral with the wings box for a total capacity of 200 liters.
  • Each engine is equipped with a mechanically driven fuel pump and an electric backup pump.
  • Tank selection and cross feeding are controlled by two valves positioned overhead
