Tecnam has launched a new edition of the P2006T, after carefully listening to customer suggestions. It improves on the best features of the well-known P2006T, of which 400 units have now been built. The Tecnam P2006T NG (Next Generation) is the result of more than 300 improvements to the current P2006T MkII; pilots now benefit from an additional front door for the co-pilot and external access to the baggage compartment. Windows have also been redesigned and made larger to improve visibility.

The powerplant is now provided by twin fuel injected Rotax 912 1Sc3 engines, offering high altitude efficiency and reduced fuel consumption of 14lt/hr (3.7 USG/h) per engine.

The wing position and anti-collision lights are integrated into the winglets and equipped with LED technology. This not only enhances efficiency, style and visibility but also offers a more eco-friendly and durable lighting solution.

The interior has also undergone major improvements, with a central console that houses the FMS GCU477 keyboard for efficient management of all Garmin avionics, including the GFC700 three-axis autopilot and the G1000 NXi, an intuitive pilot interface with total connectivity between the tablet and the cockpit thanks to the Garmin Flight Stream avionics system.

Tecnam also offers a super-premium version: the P2006 NG Sport, that features an all-Italian design and pure luxury on every flight. It has a black leather dashboard with soft LED lights, carbon-look panels, yokes and central console covered in leather, every detail meticulously designed and handcrafted. The cabin features Alcantara headliners, plush moquette seats, leather side walls and side panels with carbon look logos.

The presentation took place at the opening of the 30th edition of Aero Friedrichshafen in Germany, with Tecnam managing director Giovanni Pascale Langer explaining the benefits of this new design to a large audience of media and customers.

The P2006T NG will be launched first within EASA-approved countries. Spain-based FlyBy Aviation Academy becomes the launch operator, to expand its fleet operations and respond to increasing airline demand.

"With the P2006T NG, Tecnam confirms its position as one of the most innovative aircraft manufacturers in the world," says CEO Paolo Pascale Langer. "We certify several new designs each year in order to offer the best possible solutions to our customers."
