Tecnam Racks Up 11 Sales In Two Days For The P2012 Traveller At NBAA-BACE

Great Sales Success For The First Public Appearance Of The Airplane

Tecnam had a successful showing at NBAA-BACE in Las Vegas last week, signing contracts for 11 P2019 Traveller airplanes during the show.

Walter Da Costa, Tecnam’s Global Sales and Marketing Director signed contracts with Naseer Ismail, CEO of TAMIFIELD (Pty) – a member of the AMRHO Group- from South Africa for six P2012’s with the option of an additional twelve. Capt. Alfredo Andres Ortiz Osoria, CEO of Charter Express – SAS – from Columbia, ordered five P2012’s with the option of an additional five.

"We are thrilled to present the new P2012 Traveller in Vegas. The impressive number of sales signed here at NBAA confirms the P2012’s leadership in the general aviation marketplace,” Da Costa said.

The first few P2012 Travellers left Tecnam’s Headquarters in Capua, Italy and arrived at Cape Air’s base in Hyannis, MA the end of September. This delivery was led by Giovanni Pascale, grandson of the two founders, Luigi and Giovanni Pascale. They arrived in time to celebrate the company’s 30-year anniversary.

The Tecnam P2012 is powered by two 375 HP turbo-charged Lycoming engines and features a modern design with state-of-the-art equipment, allowing single-pilot operations depending on individual country regulations. This aircraft offers high efficiency and low maintenance costs by design with its simple and easily accessed airframe and systems. Such as- fixed landing gear, robust interiors and easy-to-replace parts. These attributes and many more, make it the ideal aircraft for regional airlines.

The arrival of the next-generation 11-seat, twin-engine P2012 Traveller is highly anticipated by a large number of airlines around the world who have been demanding a replacement for the many hundreds of ‘heritage’ aeroplanes in the FAR23/CS23 category. This aircraft is set to open many profitable opportunities in Short Haul transportation and is revolutionising the Piston Engines sector. Already established as a leader in both the Flight Training and Private General Aviation sectors, Tecnam’s P2012 Traveller will undoubtedly herald very similar success for Tecnam in the very competitive commuter airline market.

To ensure maximum customer service, Tecnam signed an agreement with Boeing that will assume the P2012 Traveller replacement parts distribution responsibilities. This will include forecasting, ordering and delivering of all original equipment manufacturer (OEM) genuine parts through their Aviall distribution network.  “High-frequency is where this aircraft really shines. The P2012 would excel at transporting executives on short flights or routes involving multiple stops," said Tecnam Managing Director Giovanni Pascale.

Base price of the P2012 in 2020 is $ 2.6million for standard airline configuration. VIP, Cargo, passenger-cargo combination, Medevac and Special Mission are also immediately available as optional configurations. The P2012 is already EASA and FAA certified.

Cape Air has already received three P2012’s and is planning to put them in service for revenue flights starting December, 2019. They have an additional 20 on order with options for another 90.
