Austro-German engineering and surveying company AirborneHydroMapping has ordered the first special mission platform-configured (SMP) P2012 from Tecnam. This 11-seat aircraft will enable the company to extend its fleet and survey possibilities for aerial mapping.

“The P2012 Traveller will increase our range of operations and raise the level of quality of service to offer to our customers,” says airborne mapping director Frank Steinbacher.

The company already owns a twin engine P2006T SMP that has proven to be a great success, and the new P2012 Traveller SMP will offer operational flexibility and fulfil seasonal independent mobilisation for survey missions all over Europe, eastern Europe and northern Africa.

Tecnam global sales and market director Walter Da Costa adds: “Tecnam is very proud to be associated with such an environmentally-friendly company. We feel honoured that our aircraft are contributing to this highly essential and important work.”
