Italian aircraft manufacturer Tecnam has introduced a second-generation version of its popular P2002 Sierra light sport aircraft.
Called, the P2002 Sierra MkII, the upgraded model comes 14 years after the first P2002 was launched.
According to Tecnam, the Sierra MkII has the same qualities and capabilties of its predecessor, but with upgraded cabin and instrument panel and a re-designed cowl for the 100-hp Rotax.
“The market is always demanding greater comfort and more features," said Tecnam Managing Director Paolo Pascale, "so improving and updating our product is a must.
"At the same time innovation has always been part of Tecnam's DNA and has been one of the major keys to our success.”
Improved features on the Sierra MkII include:
- Larger cabin, with new premium interior design
- Re-designed canopy with more headroom and new locking mechanism that reduces noise level
- Seats with extra fore and aft adjustment
- Sleeker engine cowling
- State-of-the-art avionics
- Several options for paint colours and interior fabrics
Advances in avionics since the P2002 was introduced has prompted Tecnam to offer a series of options in the MkII, including traditional analogue instruments, twin 10-inch Dynon Skyview displays and Garmin G3X avionics.
The Sierra MkII has a 75% cruise speed of 110 KTAS and a range of 600 nm at a fuel flow of 17 lph.
