Tecnam Delivers First Trainer To Hellenic Air Force

First Of 12 P2002JF Airplanes On Order With The HAF

Tecnam has delivered of the first Tecnam P2002JF aircraft to Hellenic Air Force (HAF). The aircraft was welcomed at the home of Hellenic Air Force Academy at Tatoi/Dekelia (Athens) Air Base by the General Staff of the Hellenic Air Force, in the presence of John Gkontikoulis, the Commander of the HAFA.

This is the first of 12 Tecnam P2002JF low wing trainers due to be delivered to the HAF. The order being the result of a thorough and intensive evaluation process. The HAF selected the Tecnam P2002 JF as its next-generation screening/primary training aircraft.

After a stop in Lecce, the flight continued over Corfu and Oxia, arriving at HAF base of Tatoi LGTT at 2 pm local time.

In addition to the 12 P2002 JF aircraft ordered, Tecnam will provide a SOFTEK simulator and a computer-based integrated training system with ancillary support services.

The Tecnam P2002JF is a two-seat, single engine, low wing aircraft. Powered by the popular ROTAX 912, and with the latest avionic from Garmin, it is firmly established as one of world’s most popular single engine aeroplanes and the aircraft of choice by so many Flight Training Organizations and Air Forces.

In 2016 Tecnam delivered eight P2002JF to Argentina Air Force. This fleet has amassed a total of over 6,000 hours and performed 16,000 landings to date.

"We are very proud that after extensive evaluation the Hellenic Air Force selected Tecnam. With delivery today of the first of 12 P2002JF’s exactly on schedule, we very much look forward to supporting our friends in Greece for many years to come," said Walter De Costa,Tecnam Global Sales & Marketing Director.
