Italian aircraft manufacturer Tecnam has kicked off the New Year by launching its new Tecnam P92 Sea-Sky Hydroplane.
The P92 Sea-Sky Hydroplane is the sixth generation model of the Tecnam P92 Echo Classic and Eaglet range of aeroplanes. Tecnam said this new generation development builds on the success of its predecessors to offer an innovative, spacious and cost effective seaplane.
Powered by a 100hp engine and requiring a take-off run of less than 200 metres, Tecnam said the P92 Sea-Sky Hydroplane offers ease of operation on the water and in the air.
Tecnam is producing the P92 Sea-Sky Hydroplane at its new composites production facility in Capua, Italy, where it also builds the two-place Tecnam P2008 and the forthcoming four-place Tecnam P Twenty-Ten.
“Our Tecnam P92 Sea-Sky Hydroplane offers the pleasure of enjoying both blue waters and blue skies,” Tecnam Managing Director Paolo Pascale said. “[It’s] not just designed to perform superbly on water, but also on the remaining 29 per cent of the worlds surface, land, by using our innovative four wheels retractable landing gear.”
In making this announcement, Tecnam did not specify a price point for the P92 Sea-Sky Hydroplane, nor did they say when they expect it to reach the market.
