Now that the prototype of Tecnam’s P2012 twin-engine Traveller has more than 100 hours of successful flight testing under its wings, the company is taking the next step towards certification. Last week, Tecnam announced that assembly of the second P2012 has been completed.
Tecnam says that the P2012 is on track for FAA and EASA certification in 2018. The Traveller is an 11-seat, piston-twin commuter. With the G1000 NXi-equipped P2012, Tecnam is aiming to produce an aircraft that will do everything from medevac and carrying cargo to parachuting and VIP transport—on both land and water. If all goes according to plan, the first production P2012s are slated to go to Cape Air in early 2019.
