Italian manufacturer Tecnam has announced that Sevenair Academy, one of Portugal’s leading flight training organisations (FTO), has ordered 10 Tecnam P2008JC Mk II aeroplanes.
Sevenair currently operates a training fleet of 20 aircraft, which includes both the Tecnam P2010 and P2006T Twin.
This new and significant investment is part of Sevenair’s commitment to become one of Europe best and largest FTOs and ensure student pilots are trained on state-of-the-art aircraft.
Alexandre Alves, Chief Commercial Officer of Sevenair Group said: “The Tecnam P2008JC Mk II is without doubt the best replacement for our legacy trainers such as the Cessna 152, due to its design, superlative performance, technology and innovation.
“Our Tecnam aeroplanes have more than proven their value too in terms of operational capability, reliability, training advantages and cost effectiveness.”
