Mach 1 becomes South African dealer for Tecnam
Mach 1 will be offering the entire Tecnam aircraft range, including the P2006T light twin, while using the aircraft for its own training services.
Tecnam says its platforms for training are based on modern aircraft models that exceed a strict and high level certification process that 1950s designed aircraft on the training market cannot meet.

Tecnam has agreed a deal with Mach 1 to market its entire aircraft range in South Africa. Mach 1 will not only market the aircraft but will use the Tecnam aircraft for training at its flight school near Johannesburg.

A Tecnam P92 MkII will be touring South Africa to showcase its features and benefits. A second aircraft will be used for initial training and a twin engine P2006T will follow by the end of the year.

Tecnam's fleet solution allows flight schools to offer different models covering different requirements from initial to advanced flight training. Tecnam says its platforms for training are based on modern aircraft models that exceed a strict and high level certification process that 1950s designed aircraft on the training market cannot meet.

Mach 1 will be utilising the high wing P92 MkII LSA for initial training equipped with the Garmin G3X dual screen system. Students will then move to the P2006T light twin with Garmin G1000 NXi to complete their multi-commercial and multi-engine instructor certificates.

Mach 1 chief sales officer Mubi Manaf says: “Our dream is to be able to provide a safe aviator training academy where students can earn a pilot's licence whilst owning their own aircraft. It makes sense for us to partner with an aircraft company that has high safety standards and whose aircraft are compliant with the latest certifications, as customer safety is important to us. We are excited to be able to offer state-of-the-art Tecnam aeroplanes to customers in Africa.”
