EAA AirVenture Oshkosh RSS FeedTecnam rolls out new flight center program
 
Gone are the days when 30-year-old, “steam-gauge” aircraft on a flightline will attract new students. Instead, the light-sport aircraft certification rules and the sport pilot certificate have revolutionized initial training while enabling older pilots to remain active in aviation. In the long run, however, general aviation will depend on a younger, mobile, computer-savvy generation of students learning to fly. In response, Tecnam, which says it is the world’s largest manufacturer of light aircraft, is providing ground school and flight lesson courseware via interactive, mobile data platforms such as the Apple iPad.

Through the newly announced Tecnam Flight Centers, schools can gain access to innovative, patented and integrated flight training and navigation technology, ease of access to aircraft through purchase, and leasing options and incentives to move aircraft from the flightline into the hands of students. Tecnam Flight Centers are now being set up across the country to bring the best available training fleet and educational programs together in a turn-key package.

Tecnam, in collaboration with MS Aviation and Hilton Software, LLC has developed proprietary software for students and instructors to use simultaneously, helping maximize training effectiveness. Flight schools also can monitor the effectiveness of instructors and gain a better, real-time understanding of which teaching methods are the most effective.

Tecnam’s Flight Center program greatly enhances a flight school’s ability to attract a younger generation of students, according to the company, and training aircraft are easier to obtain. Under the program, flight schools are financially rewarded to take advantage of the brand loyalty they generate in their students.
