July 27, 2009 - Oshkosh, WisconsinTecnam Aircraft introduced its newest aircraft - the twin-engine P2006T - to the U.S. market today on AeroShell Square.

The P2006T is a high-wing, four-seat, light twin-engine airplane with retractable landing gear, full feathering constant speed propellers, and an optional all glass avionics cockpit. Powered by FAR 33 certified Rotax 912S engines, the aircraft can operate on auto fuel and has a fuel burn at cruise of 10 gph.

Lynne Bermingham of Tecnam Aircraft (Marietta, Georgia), the U.S. distributor for the parent Italian company, said Tecnam believes the P2006T will energize the flight training market. "This airplane is economical to fly and economical to maintain. It's all aluminum to make maintenance easier. And, its single-engine performance characteristics are significant."

The aircraft has been flying in the European marketplace for the past year, and Bermingham said Tecnam will be ready to make U.S. deliveries in six to eight months. Price ranges from just over $400,000 for an analog panel to $500,000 for an all-glass Garmin suite.

You can see the P2006T fly at about 3 p.m. today, following the arrival of WhiteKnightTwo.
