Tecnam Aircraft as appointed Aviation Unlimited as exclusive dealer for sales and service for Canada.
With facilities at both Toronto Buttonville airport and Oshawa Executive airport in Ontario, Aviation Unlimited offers Tecnam's complete product line of light sport, as well as the certified single and twin engine aircraft. The Tecnam fleet is perfect for Canada as its aircraft offer the best efficiency, performance and value while meeting the latest certification standards with a unique feature as 'the greenest fleet on the market'.
Canada is an important market for Tecnam and, with Aviation Unlimited, new customers and owners can expect a high level of service. The first aircraft to be marketed will be the P2006T MkII.
The P2006T MkII is a twin engine, four seat aircraft with fully retractable landing gear. Its simplicity, great performance, efficiency and ergonomics are what make this aircraft ideal for multi-engine training as well as cross-country flying. It offers unbeatable value and innovative design with 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, the P2006T exhibits remarkable fuel savings and can be operated on Avgas and Mogas 95 octane fuel, leading to huge cost reductions.
The P2006T is ideal for flight training, as the aircraft has proved to be very unstressful to fly, the controls are light to operate, and it can compete even with a single engine aircraft on consumption allowing, with just one platform, different ratings such as multi-engine piston (MEP), variable pitch propeller, EFIS and retractable landing gear.
Based on recent data and industry benchmarks, Italy-based aircraft manufacturer Tecnam has revealed that flight schools operating Tecnam's single and twin engine fleets can save as much as 10 tones of CO2 emissions for every single student graduated with a commercial pilot licence, a 60 per cent reduction compared to fleets using 100LL fuel on a journey of 155 flight hours, 30 hours of which are on twins.
“Aviation Unlimited prides itself on being a family company that specialises in high performance, technically advanced, owner flown aircraft. The Tecnam brand embodies all of these characteristics, and it is one of the most innovative on the market. We believe that the time is right to align incentives and re-capture the Canadian market,” says vice president Isaac Capua.
“Having Aviation Unlimited on board is the key to supporting our growth in Canada and North America, supporting of our existing customers and expanding the awareness of our aircraft,” adds Tecnam US director of sales David Copeland.
