Certified: P2010 TDI Gets The Nod From EASA

Fuel Burns Range From 4.5 USG/HR At 55% Power, To 7 USG/HR At 75% Power

TECNAM has received a Type Certificate for the P2010 TDI from EASA. The P2010 TDI certification adds the Diesel/JetA1 engine to the family of Avgas and Mogas-powered TECNAM aircraft.

The P2010 airframe, with its composite fuselage design and the all-metal wing and stabilator, has proven to be a good match for the Diesel engine. The "P Twenty-Ten" now offers the flexibility offered by the use of Diesel/JetA1 fuel and the low operating costs provided by the dual FADEC-controlled Continental engine.

Along with the 180 hp Avgas/Mogas and 215 hp Avgas engines, certification of the 170 hp TDI widens the range of choice for P2010 customers. This latest engine development brings the aviation market fuel efficiency and performance: the turbo Diesel/JetA1 powerplant offers the following: excellent fuel burns ranging from 4.5 USG/hr at 55% power, to 7 USG/hr at 75% power. This provides consistent performance up to 8,000ft and allows operations up to 18,000ft. Moreover, the standard P2010 fuel tanks allow a range in excess of 1,000nm and endurance of up to 15 hours, all monitored via the standard G1000NXI avionics package.

Some of the many options available include Premium leather interiors with electric seats; the GFC-700 autopilot, and the GTS-800 TAS system.

The P2010 TDI 's fuselage and vertical fin, entirely made of pre-peg carbon fibers, provide the best use of space, while wings, horizontal tail and rudder, as well as all the load-carrying structures, are built with 70 years' experience of light alloy structures.

Electrically operated, adjustable-height seats with 26G-capable crashworthiness offer additional safety enhancements. Continental's JetA1/Diesel-powered 170 HP engine utilizes single-lever control, full FADEC, electronic engine monitoring and redundant safety features. The CD-170 is the newest design and also the highest-horsepower engine in the CD-100 series, with more than 6,000 engines delivered and over 7.1 million service flight hours.

"The certification of a new aircraft is always a great achievement for us and for the aviation community, especially when it involves the best professionals of the Authority and from our company, setting the latest standard for safety and innovation," says Paolo Pascale, TECNAM CEO. "The P Twenty-Ten remains a modern aircraft for flight schools and private owners. And now, with the Continental JetA1/Diesel engine, the P2010 TDI is simply the 'ideal aircraft', combining a modern, sleek, 'green' design with consistent, robust power."

"The type certification for the Tecnam P2010 TDI is a significant milestone for the commercial use of JetA1/Diesel engines for flight schools and private owners," said Jurgen Schwarz, Executive Vice President of Commercial Business for Continental Aerospace Technologies.
