This twin-piston-engine might not be the fastest, but it does definitely belong to the list of the most interesting/good looking general aviation aircraft. The engines used to power this aircraft are also often to find in ultralight airplanes. That does mean it is very fuel efficient, wich is today even more important then ever before. Another reason to add this aircraft is that it is today the cheapest twin-engine aircraft you can buy brand new.
But my personal favorite feature is the fact that it is a small, twin engine, high-wing GA with retractable landing gear. By that it does perfectly fill the lack of GA in IF. #makeGAgreatagain
Description of the aircraft by the manufacturer
Flexible, economical light twin.
The Tecnam P2006T Twin has established itself as the aircraft of choice for not only the world’s most reputable Flight Training Organisations but private owners alike. A firm favorite with leading General Aviation fight-test journalists who praise its styling, handling and very low operating costs.
Tecnam P2006T is a twin-engine four-seat aircraft with fully retractable landing gear. The superior high-wing configuration offers stability, superior cabin visibility and easy access for passengers and luggage. Tecnam has used its extensive experience with aluminum airframes to create in the Tecnam P2006 a robust yet very light airframe, resulting in an outstanding payload-to-total weight ratio.
The wings are of traditional construction, that is essentially a mono spar configuration. Integral fuel tanks are located outboard of the engines, holding 100 litres each for a total of 200 litres.
Particular attention has been paid to the cabin’s structural design in order to ensure the required crashworthiness as prescribed in recent amendments to the FAA-FAR23 and EASA-CS23 codes.
The generous interior dimensions of the Tecnam P2006T allow maximum space for pilots and passengers alike. With its two doors, its upholstered seats complete with headrests and vertical adjustment, the cabin provides great flexibility for pilots of varying physical size to optimise their comfort.
Specific care has been given to cabin interiors and acoustic comfort. The ventilation system features one vent outlet for each occupant. The heating system uniformly warms the cabin and a defrost manifold prevents the windshield from fogging up even while taxiing.
Large windows, together with the high wings, provide excellent visibility for a very pleasant flight, as well as for safe ground operations. The cabin has a spacious luggage compartment of 350 litres, which is easily accessible.
Premium option makes your aircraft more precious: Alcantara leather and a dark ceiling improve your flying experience with unique ingredients. Your aircraft interiors is now more exclusive and comfortable while guaranteeing absolute compliance with the industry’s strictest standards.
