African and South American buyers sign up for Travellers
Tecnam says that the arrival of the P2012 Traveller is highly anticipated by buyers around the world who have been demanding a replacement for 'heritage' aeroplanes in the FAR23/CS23 category.
Tecnam achieved 11 sales in two days when it debuted the Traveller in Las Vegas.

Tecnam has announced several sales on the back of the first public appearance of its twin engine 11-seat piston P2012 Traveller at NBAA-BACE.

Contracts were signed between the OEM and Naseer Ismail, CEO of Tamfield, a member of the AMRHO Group from South Africa who has ordered six P2012s with the option of an additional 12. Alfredo Andres Ortiz Osoria, CEO of Charter Express SAS from Colombia, also ordered five P2012s with the option of an additional five.

Tecnam global sales and marketing director Walter Da Costa says: “We were thrilled to present the new P2012 Traveller in Vegas. The impressive number of sales signed here at NBAA confirms the P2012's leadership in the general aviation marketplace.”

The first few P2012 Travellers left Tecnam's headquarters in Capua, Italy and arrived at Cape Air's base in Hyannis, Massachusetts at the end of September. This delivery was led by Giovanni Pascale, grandson of the two founders, Luigi and Giovanni Pascale. They arrived in time to celebrate the company's 30-year anniversary.

The Tecnam P2012 is powered by two 375 HP turbo-charged Lycoming engines and allows single-pilot operations depending on individual country regulations. This aircraft offers high efficiency and low maintenance costs by design with its simple and easily accessed airframe and systems, such as fixed landing gear, robust interiors and easy-to-replace parts.

To ensure maximum customer service, Tecnam has signed an agreement with Boeing that will assume the P2012 Traveller replacement parts distribution responsibilities. This will include forecasting, ordering and delivering of all OEM genuine parts through Boeing's Aviall distribution network.

“High-frequency is where this aircraft really shines. The P2012 excels at transporting executives on short flights or routes involving multiple stops,” says Tecnam MD Giovanni Pascale.

Cape Air has already received three P2012s and is planning to put them in service for revenue flights starting December 2019. It has an additional 20 on order with options for another 90.
