Professional Aviation boosts Tecnam fleet with P2006T order
The addition of new Tecnam aircraft will allow Professional Aviation to increase and speed up the number of students and their path to ATPL, at a lower cost and with lower emissions.
Two Tecnam P2006Ts will be winging their way to a training academy near Bologna in Italy.

Italy-based ATO Professional Aviation has signed a letter of intent for two Tecnam P2006Ts, the IFR Part 23 certified twin engine with retractable gear, and four two seat P-Mentors. The company already has two P2006Ts within its fleet.

“Continuing to grow our international cadet programme and the size of our fleet, we couldn't avoid choosing the P2006T again,” says Professional Aviation's accountable manager and head of training Vito Preti.

The P2006T offers a modern Garmin avionics suite, integrating all primary flight, navigation, communication and terrain data on two high-definition LCDs. The aircraft is also equipped with an S-Tec 55x high-performance, two-axis autopilot, with advanced features. Fitted with two Rotax 912S3 engines, it can be operated on Avgas and Mogas 95 octane fuel, leading to cost savings, offering training for multi engine, variable pitch and retractable landing gear ratings.

A recent study shows that flight schools operating with Tecnam single and twin engine fleets can reduce emissions by up to 60 per cent: 10 tons of CO2 for each student by the time they receive their commercial pilot licence.
