Italian manufacturer Tecnam has celebrated the roll out and engine start of the first Tecnam P Twenty-Ten.
The Tecnam P Twenty-Ten, or P2010, is an all-new high wing four-seater that will compete head to head with the ever-popular Cessna C172.
Late last week, with Tecnam Managing Director Paolo Pascale at the controls, the very first Tecnam P Twenty-Ten successfully underwent its first engine start.
As seen in the below video, Pascale engages the Lycoming IO-360-M1a ‘Lycoming Light’ engine and the engine comes to life.
Tecnam says it has already taken deposits for, “many P Twenty Ten slots, even before first flight” and that “a very bright future is assured” for this new Tecnam.
