LSA
P2008
All information applies to the Tecnam model P2008 equipped with the engine Rotax 912 ULS2, 912 IS and 914 ULS2.
The sleek and beautiful lines of the single-engine Tecnam P2008 incorporate a level of comfort, quality and efficiency that have made it the ideal touring aircraft. With its carbon-fiber fuselage, metals wings and stabilator, the Tecnam P2008 has a vast number of advantages over traditional aircraft.
This combination of both composite material and metal has resulted in a more fuel efficient and much quieter aircraft. Pilots appreciate the quality and security built into this popular Tecnam design.
In service with many Flight Schools around the globe the P2008 is recognised as a stateof- the-art flight trainer too.
With a choice of 3 engines, the Rotax 912ULS, 914 Turbo and the 912iS, the P2008 enjoys low operating costs. The P2008, Tecnam's most cost effective and environmentally friendly aircraft.
The Tecnam P2008 is the first Tecnam aircraft fitted with the all new Rotax 912iS engine. Delivering significantly better fuel efficiency and lower operating costs than comparable light sport and ultra-light aircraft, the Tecnam P2008 is powered by the all new Rotax 912iS, reducing fuel costs, be it Mogas or Avgas, by up to a remarkable 20%.
The single-engine Tecnam P2008's versatility and ease of use has established it as both the aircraft of choice for Flight Training Organizations worldwide as well as recreational flyers.
Construction
top document
 
The P2008 LSA has metal Wings and a metal stabilator. Tecnam chose metal wings and stabilator structures for strength, reliability, and ability to flex in flight providing a more comfortable ride. To produce the desired increase in cabin width and greater aerodynamic efficiency, Tecnam chose carbon fiber.

The decision to utilize both materials was for the optimization of aerodynamic qualities, flight characteristics, and reliability. This addition allows Tecnam to make decisions to be based on design and structural integrity rather than purely the cost of production. The wing is based on the well-known NACA63A airfoil, and through partial tapering, it is brought close to the optimal lift distribution (elliptical). The Single-slot flaps extend along much of the wing span. The Frise type aileron along with the taper design provides a high rate of roll. The all movable type (stabilator) horizontal tail, traditional on Tecnam aircraft, allows excellent controllability and excellent ???hands off??? longitudinal stability.
 
Landing Gear

The main springleaf landing gear, including wheels, tires and fairings, are the same as all of the other non-retractable Tecnam models. This design has withstood the test of time and extensive use in flight training environments. The newly designed nose gear is free castoring and consists of a tubular steel leg, connected to the lower engine mount attachments and is braced by an oleo pneumatic shock absorber that provides excellent ground load absorption. The steerable nose wheel is also available. All of the landing gear is faired to minimize drag. Ground steering is by differential braking.
 
Engine And Propeller

The powerplant and associated cowlings are similar to all of the existing Tecnam line with few modifications. The P2008 LSA has higher fuel capacity than the existing line (55x2 lt - 14.5x2 Gal) and tanks are installed in the wing box, behind the main spar. This is to preserve their integrity in case of a crash landing and to minimize fire potential. The instrument panel size is increased to match the additional cabin Width. It is modular in design and can accommodate the most complete instrumentation, analogical or digital type.
