LUSY signs for 30 Tecnams destined for ALIFA
Thirty Tecnam P2006T twins and Twenty-Tens will deliver pilot training that is right at the leading edge, and will enable the Anhui Lantian International Flight Academy to progress in its aim to be the world's best.
Chairman and chief pilot of Guizhou Julan Flying Club Mr Hou, LUSY general manager Guo Jing, Tecnam global sales and marketing director Walter Da Costa, Tecnam COO Giovanni Pascale, ALIFA chairman Xie Chungui and head of the CAAC Northeast Mr Hou toast the news.

Tecnam and Liaoning United-Air ShenYan (LUSY) have signed an agreement for a fleet of 30 Tecnam aircraft to join China's Anhui Lantian International Flight Academy (ALIFA). The order was inked at the biannual Zhuhai International Air Show, also known as Airshow China.

ALIFA chairman Xie Chunqui says: “Our company has selected Tecnam P2006T Twins and P2010 P Twenty-Ten models to replace our legacy fleet of training aeroplanes. Our all-new Tecnam aircraft will not only enable us to provide our cadets with the very best training fleet, but they will also support our aspirations to establish ourselves as a world-class flight training organisation.”

The Tecnam P2010 P Twenty-Ten is the first new single engine, high wing, four-seat aircraft from Tecnam that brings together an all carbon fibre fuselage with a metal wing and stabilator.

The P2006T Twin will enable the delivery of complex flight training and will enable ALIFA students to complete multi engine piston training in a faster and more efficient manner.

Tecnam's global sales and marketing director Walter Da Costa adds: “We are so proud to partner with ALIFA. It has a well-earned reputation for delivering flight training to an exceptional standard and we are honoured to be a key partner in the future development of China's next-generation of pilots.”
