FlyBy Aviation Academy, launch customer for the P2006T NG, has placed an order for an additional two new P2006T NG and 10 Tecnam P2008JC aircraft. These will supplement its existing fleet of 31 aircraft. It is actually the largest order from the Spanish ATO and it keeps growing steadily; in fact new orders are scheduled for 2025.

FlyBy's current fleet includes three P2006T, eight P2008JC, three P2002JF and two P Mentors.

The Burgos, Spain-based training organisation offers an all-inclusive integrated flight training programme with accommodation, meals, iPad, ground school and flight simulators. Course duration is just 14 months, with students combining ATPL ground school with Visual Flight Rating (VFR), Instrument Flight Rating (IFR) and then completing a Multi-Engine and APS Multi Crew Cooperation module.

In 2023 the ATO logged 23,000 flight hours and the forecast for 2024 is even more. FlyBy has recently opened a new base in Logroño, Spain and will receive a total of 16 more Tecnams in 2024.

CEO Alex Alvarez says: "We have chosen Tecnam for our fleet for its modern design and low operational costs. There is nothing comparable to the P2006T in the market. Its quality, capabilities and total cost of ownership, including acquisition and operational cost, are second to none."

Walter da Costa, Tecnam chief sales officer, adds: "We are pleased to support the growth of modern flight schools such as FlyBy. Commercial operators urgently need pilots trained on modern aircraft with glass cockpits and the latest instrumental procedures."
