29/01/2014 : Tecnam Records Two Sales During the US Sport Aviation Expo 2014
  It was a cold weekend in Sebring, Florida, but that did not keep the sales from heating up in the Tecnam booth last weekend! On Friday, Tecnam signed contracts and took deposits on two P2008 TC aircraft, with the first delivery slated for the end of January, and the second one coming just 90 days later. The first aircraft will be delivered to its new home in Georgia, with the second staying in southern Florida.

 

 The P2008 TC is the turbo charged version of the P2008 LSA, featuring the Rotax 914. This option for the P2008 increases the horsepower to 115hp, and brings the aircraft to a true 120kt cruise speed. It also gives the ability to maintain a true 120kt indicated air speed at higher altitudes, where thinner air will lead to faster ground speeds, making this aircraft the ideal touring LSA!

 

 The two buyers were very impressed with the sleek lines of the P2008, the roomy cabin, and the loaded Garmin glass panel that the demo model was showing off. The leather seats, beautiful Ferrari red paint scheme, and ground adjustable three-blade Sensenich prop finished off the spectacular look of this loaded model, making it the best looking, and one of the best equipped LSAs at the entire show.

 

 Tecnam had a strong showing at the Expo this year, with four aircraft on display, including the P2008 TC, a standard P2008, the P92 Echo Light, and the P92 SeaSky amphibious float plane. A daily siminar was offered showcasing the history of Tecnam in the world of aviation, as well as several manufacturers showcase flights showing off the wonderful flying capabilities of the Tecnam models. Multiple demo rides were completed, with several more sales expected to follow in the weeks following the event. Tecnam will be showing off its full line of aircraft next at the 40th Annual Sun ‘n Fun Fly-In in Lakeland, Florida, the first week in April.
