ARGENTINA AIR FESTIVAL ‘MENDOZA VUELA’ 2017 SEES LARGEST GATHERING ON TECNAM AIRCRAFT IN THE AMERICAS
A record 43 Argentine based Tecnam aeroplanes participated in this year’s Mendoza Vuela.
Held at the “Mario Cardama Aerodrome” in Medoza, Tecnam’s Argentina based commercial representative Aerotec Argentina SA played host to the First Annual Convention of Argentina Tecnam Owners.
The festival welcomed over 100,000 guests and Tecnam was especially proud to be able to facilitate over 100 children taking to the air for the first time.
Show highlights included the handing over of three Tecnam aircraft. A P2008, P2006T Twin and an Astore to new owners, bringing the total of Argentina based Tecnam aircraft to 70. All three aircraft were assembled at Aerotec’s state-of-the-art aircraft maintenance support and service facility.
Diego Cardama, Director, Aerotec Argentina SA said “We are extremely grateful for the support given to Mendoza Vuela by both the Argentine Civil Aviation Authority and also the Argentine Air Force, who displayed five of their eight Tecnam P2002JF aeroplanes, currently based 800km from Mendoza at the School of Military Aviation in Cordoba. We very much look forward to staging Aviation Festival again in 2018”
Walter Da Costa, Tecnam’s Global Sales and Marketing Director said “Aerotecs organisation and staging of the Mendoza Vuela was impeccable. It was a special honour to meet with so many of our locally based Tecnam customers and operators. It’s good to see that Tecnam is now firmly established as the aircraft of choice amongst the GA community in Argentina”
