Switzerland’s FGZO Chooses The Tecnam P2008JCThe decision, voted by all 123 members, came out after a very detailed aircraft comparison presentation by Bruno Wettstein, President of FGZO and Philipp Reich, Training Fleet Captain.
The FGZO membership were extremely impressed with the P2008JC’s low noise signature, its comfort, ease of use and its unbeatable operating costs.
Walter Da Costa, Tecnam’s Head of Sales and Marketing said, “We were delighted to be invited to participate in FGZO’s rigorous selection process and especially as following an intensive evaluation, that we were selected above a number of other competitors. FGZO not only valued the overall benefits the P2008JC will bring to their fleet but particularly appreciated the on-going services and support that Tecnam have firmly established a great reputation for”.
The Tecnam P2008JC is a single engine, high wing, two-seater training aircraft built in Italy. It has a carbon-fibre fuselage, metal wings and stabilator and a fixed tricycle undercarriage. It is powered by a Rotax 912 piston engine, utilising both Mogas and Avgas and ensuring exceptional low fuel consumption. FZGO has opted for full electronic flight display screens, with night capability providing conventional standby instruments.
With many Tecnam P2008’s already in service worldwide, including 15 aircraft operating with Aero-Club Air France, the fully EASA certified Tecnam P2008’s versatility and ease of use has established it as both the aircraft of choice for Flight Training Organisations as well as recreational flyers.
