Both Tecnams, after arriving during the summer of 2008, have proved a success with both students and PPLs due to their fuel economy and flight characteristics. The P2002-JF is a 2-seater, low wing aircraft with a Rotax 912S engine, factory built in Italy. The aircraft’s outstanding flying performance and flying qualities, together with low operating costs, easy piloting and maintenance, make this aircraft an excellent solution for flying schools and PPL training as well as for general touring and hour building. In order to use one of the Tecnams primarily for training and the other for existing pilots to fly, the equipment list in each has been tailored to match their purpose. EI-WFD has an ELT, VOR/ILS, Mode S X-ponder while EI-WAT has Garmin 296, VOR/ILS, Mode S X-ponder.
