NextGen is first to fly P2006T in Benelux
NextGen Aviation Group, of Antwerp, has brought its Tecnam P2006T twin into service, making it the first aircraft of this model to be flown in the Benelux region.

NextGen Aviation Group, of Antwerp, has brought its Tecnam P2006T twin into service, making it the first aircraft of this model to be flown in the Benelux region.

The aircraft is part of NextGen's fractional ownership system, and will be put into the rental market. It is also available for multi engine recurrent training, being pitched at clients who are looking for an affordable multi-engine aircraft. NextGen supports aircraft owners wishing to rent out their machines, offering logistical aid and the P2600T is the latest recruit in this initiative.

NextGen ceo Tim de Meijer believes the twin prop is a new generation of aircraft: “The P2006T is a great aircraft because it can operate at every airfield within Belgium. It's also equipped with the Garmin G950, which is a great experience for the pilots who nowadays prefer to fly with a glass cockpit.”

As for the fractional ownership system, de Meijer adds: “We want to help clients access cheaper private aircraft that can operate to almost every airfield. We are going to perform some recurrent checks on it and place the aircraft on the aerial survey market as a rental aircraft, because we have equipped the aircraft with two camera holes. Because of its low speeds we can also do some high tension pipeline inspections.”
