First P2012 Touches Down At Zil Air Base

Will Operate Out Of Seychelles International Airport

The P2012 Tecnam Traveller S7-ADM, commanded by Captains Gerhard Geyer, John Rachel and Anthony Hoareau, departed the Tecnam factory in Italy last week on a 4,500 nautical mile journey to Seychelles.

The delivery flight flew over Italy, Greece, Egypt, Sudan, Kenya and Tanzania to finally reach its destination.

With the delivery, Zil Air becomes the second world-wide operator of the aircraft, and the only one outside the United States, to offer the Tecnam Traveller in Commercial Operations.

Comfortably accommodating nine passengers with two crew, the Traveller is a new-generation, piston-powered, twin-engine, high-wing, fixed-landing-gear aircraft. The introduction into the Zil Air fleet provides their customers with cost-effective and varied configuration options, whilst always offering experiences that discerning travellers expect, such as air-conditioning, in-seat power, decent leg room and under-seat storage space.

Cutting-edge avionics by Garmin offers pilots all the information they require for day and night operations, making night operations to equipped airfields another key factor in the choice of aircraft.

The Traveller offers multi-role opportunities, including Special Mission, VIP, Cargo, Hydro options, parachuting and medevac services, and Zil Air is working closely with Tecnam to implement the latter.

Tecnam embraced Zil Air as a partner from day one, and the two teams worked alongside each other to customise this brand-new aircraft in order to meet Zil Air’s exact requirements.

"We are proud of our team and their tireless efforts to ensure the aircraft landed in Seychelles ready to commence operations in December 2019," said Zil Air’s Executive Director Francis Savy. "Good things take time and the final result is an aircraft answering all Zil Air’s operational requirements and it was purposefully tailored for Seychelles operations.”

"This new delivery is another great achievement for us. After the Atlantic jump in cold climates, the Traveller confirms her qualities in warm, hot countries such as Africa. We are delighted to have Zil Air among our valuable customers,” said Tecnam’s Managing Director Giovanni Pascale.
