Tecnam receives EASA go ahead for steep STOL
The multi mission capability of the aircraft allows operators to exchange STOL configuration from passenger transportation to cargo, combi or air ambulance within minutes, providing healthcare and much more.
The aircraft offers a maximum gross weight of 3,680 kg with a useful load of 1,191 kg while maintaining a modern design, a wide and comfortable cabin and 11 seats.

Tecnam's P2012 STOL has received EASA certification for steep approaches of up to 10 degrees. This important milestone is a significant endorsement of the P2012 design and further expands the aircraft's operability.

The P2012 STOL aircraft, specifically designed for short take-off and landing operations, is designed and tailored to operate from airports and airstrips characterised by extremely short runways and extreme operational constraints.

Francesco Sferra, Tecnam P2012 special mission platforms sales and business development manager says: “With its impressive short field performance and now 10-degree approach certification, there is no inaccessible runway for the latest P2012 STOL.”

The P2012 STOL is the only twin-piston aircraft with short take-off and landing capabilities that complies with the latest certification amendments. It offers a maximum gross weight of 3,680 kg with a useful load of 1,191 kg while maintaining a modern design, a wide and comfortable cabin and 11 seats.

The cabin entrance and accommodation is enhanced by a wide single access door and a central aisle, along with a dedicated window for each of the nine individual passengers, no bench/double seats and the best passenger amenities are provided such as dual USB ports at each seat, cabin air conditioning, individual fresh and hot air outlets, dedicated reading light, seat pockets and cup and mobile phone holders.

The interiors design and the superb view granted by the high wing configuration provide a best-in-class experience for the flights to typical remote STOL destinations.

The multi mission capability of the aircraft allows operators to exchange the STOL configuration from passengers' transportation to cargo, combi or air ambulance within minutes, providing healthcare, assistance and serving communities worldwide.

Mission accomplishment and flight safety enhancement pass through a modern cockpit with latest technology, including as a standard state-of-the-art G1000 NXi avionic system, GFC700 specifically tuned autopilot, and ADS-B In/Out. An active and connected flight deck (Bluetooth, flight stream, Iridium) and a toolbox of modern aids (Wx radar, storm scope, inset map, Synthetic Vision) are provided to reduce workload and fatigue while increasing mission safety and effectiveness. From a comfort perspective the P2012 STOL offers a 34 per cent wider cabin, 24 per cent larger seat pitch, 188 per cent higher luggage weight allowance and 303 per cent better luggage volume when compared to legacy competitors STOL aircraft and all in accordance with the latest certification standards.
