Tecnam has announced it is working with Montreal-based Mechtronix Systems to develop a Tecnam P2006T Twin Procedure Trainer (FNPT II).
The Italian aircraft manufacturer has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Mechtronix, which specialises in the design and manufacturing of Flight Simulation Training Devices for general, business and commercial aviation, to develop and commercialise a Tecnam P2006T FNPT II as well as a P2006T conversion kit for existing simulators.
The new training platform will be marketed as the ‘P2006T Ascent Flight Trainer’ and will comprise a Garmin 1000 avionic suite and all instrumentation necessary for IR training.
Tecnam says it is committed to ensuring that Flight Training Organisations (FTOs) are able to offer their customers the most cost-effective and the very latest flight simulation technology.
“We are intrinsically committed to supporting our FTO customers in as many aspects of their commercial activities as possible,” Tecnam Managing Director Paolo Pascale said. “We believe our co-operation with Mechtronix will benefit greatly the FTO community as we will be providing both a cost-effective and complete solution to meet flying schools training requirements with respect to both aircraft and simulators.”
“Working with one of the world’s largest General Aviation aircraft manufacturers is a real honour for all of us at Mechtronix and we look forward to cooperating with Tecnam’s team,” Mechtronix Senior Director Strategy, Mark Dransfield, added.
The potential price range and likely timeframe for availability of the P2006T Ascent Flight Trainer has not been announced.
