Aero-TV: The Tecnam P2006T -- Energizing The Flight Training Market

Rotax Powered Twin Proves Multi-Engine A/C CAN BE Cost-Effective

Mostly known for their efforts in the LSA aircraft game, Tecnam (which has been building planes since 1948, by the way), has been building serious buzz for a new program for a few years -- a light twin that could shake up the business a fair amount. Built around the highly-regarded Rotax 912S, the P2006T is destined to do something that few twins have been able to do over the years... entice owners looking for a cost-effective flyer.

With only 100 hp per side, the 200 hp P2006T, with constant-speed/full-feathering props, will have a cruise speed (at 75%) of 140 kts. The bird is a four seater, with high wing and retractable gear. The cockpit is currently scheduled to be filled by the buyer's choice of a Garmin G1000 or standard gauges. Stall speed (Vso) is 49 knots, while the M/E climb rate is 1140 fpm and in single engine mode, still manages to eke out 230 fpm.

With 880 pounds of useful load, the P2006T needs 898 feet for takeoff (with 1213 feet to clear the stereotypical 50 foot obstacle), and 656 feet for landing roll out (a total of 1279 feet over the 50 foot obstacle). The retractable gear system is electric. The P2006T has a 400 liter fuel capacity (about 105 gallons) and offers 620 nm range.

In addition to the fact that the Rotax 912S is fairly easy on the fuel flows, this is an engine that can burn auto-gas without issue... offering even greater economies.

As the first all-new twin on the GA Market since the Diamond DA42, with obvious attractions for the most economical buyers and flight schools, the P2006T is sure to find a ready market among those with a need for that extra engine... without killing their wallets in the process.
