MEXICAN IFLY UNIVERSITY TAKES DELIVERY OF A P2006T MKII PREMIUM EDITION
The aircraft flew from Tecnam US in Sebring, FL to Merida, Mexico flew around the Gulf of Mexico for a total of 1960 NM.
CAPUA – Tecnam announced today that the P2006T S/N 350 was delivered to iFly Academy in Merida, Mexico. iFly chose this modern twin engine to improve the MEP training and updating their twin fleet “with the most efficient and versatile aircraft of its category for multi – IFR training.”
The Tecnam P2006T MkII is a twin-engine four-seat aircraft with fully retractable landing gear. Its simplicity, great performance, efficiency and ergonomics are what make this aircraft ideal for multi-engine training, as well as cross-country flying. The P2006T offers unbeatable value and innovative design with a modern Garmin avionics suite, integrating all primary flight, navigation, communication and terrain data on two high-definition LCDs. The aircraft is also equipped with an S-Tec 55x high-performance, two-axis autopilot, with advanced features.
Fitted with two Rotax 912S3 engines, the Tecnam P2006T exhibits remarkable fuel saving and can be operated on AVGAS and MOGAS 95 octane fuel, leading to huge cost reductions.
Acquiring the P2006T will allow iFly to offer more flight time and a quicker way to move through multi-engine ratings. The P2006T is ideal for flight training, as the aircraft has proved to be very unstressful to fly, the controls are light to operate, and even with one inoperative engine, the pressure needed to cope with the asymmetric thrust is very low.
The P2006T MkII can compete even with a single engine aircraft on consumption, allowing, with just one platform, different ratings as Multi Engine Piston (MEP), Variable Pitch Propeller, EFIS, and retractable landing gear.
iFly looks forward to continuing its relationship with TECNAM Aircraft to further expand its single and multi-engine fleet.
“We are so delighted to have another Tecnam flying in Mexico. We see a great potential for aviation, and we are proud that flight students would benefit of a modern and smart aircraft” says Tecnam’s Chief Sales Officer, Walter Da Costa.
iFly Ceo and Founder, Julian Esquivel says: “We are proud of building from scratch a new relationship with TECNAM and we are even more proud of the hands and legacy that built our airplane. TECNAM is a beautiful Aviation Family and we are honoured to work with and connect Mexico to Italy in our industry.
