Award winning Tecnam P Twenty Ten achieves EASA certification

Today Tecnam is delighted to announce the certification approval by EASA (No. EASA A.576) for the Tecnam P Twenty Ten and the commencement of deliveries to customers throughout Europe.

The Tecnam P Twenty Ten the first new single engine, high wing, four-seat, CS 23 certified aircraft in many decades.

The achievement of EASA cS 23 Certification was the result of extensive investment and dedicated effort of all members of the Tecnam organization.  The certification program included over 200 hours of test flights, more than 100 spin configurations, lightning tests on full scale assemblies and many other technological achievements.

Tecnam is one of only two OEM’s that are capable to produce GA aircraft incorporating both metal and composite components combining a prepeg carbon fiber fuselage with a metal wing and stabilator/rudder, has allowed Tecnam to optimize aerodynamic quality and reliability that can meet the challenge of ensuring all of EASA’s stringent certification tests are met.

The Tecnam P Twenty Ten is the most advanced high wing modern single engine aircraft in the marketplace. The Tecnam P Twenty Ten incorporates an expansive cabin featuring ergonomic forward and rear seats with exceptional legroom, and a large separate third entry door.

The wide composite cabin allows for a large instrument panel with three avionics options; analogue IFR, a Garmin G500 IFR or twin-screen Garmin G1000 IFR with integrated GFC700 autopilot.

Professor Luigi Pascale, Tecnam’s Head of Design and co-founder in 1948, along with his brother Giovanni, said “Finally, today we are happy to have completed all the extensive certification tests with EASA.”

The P Twenty Ten has been extensively flight tested and validated by many independent GA pilots.

Peter Collins, Test Pilot from Flightglobal said “The P2010 impressed me from the outset. It looks, feels and flies like a modern aircraft and does represent a step change in this type of four-seat GA aircraft design. I believe the Tecnam P2010 significantly exceeds the “flyability”, “useability” and “survivability” of the Cessna Skyhawks and Skylanes and equals them on affordability.

The P2010 was genuinely a real pleasure to fly and future owners will be inspired by the aircraft’s combination of advanced avionics, very short field performance, exceptional useful load capability and excellent cross-country range. If I could trade my own Piper Arrow IV Turbo, the P2010 is the aircraft I would buy”.

Deliveries in the Czech Republic, France, Poland, UK and Spain will commence immediately.

Tecnam prides itself on supplying its customers the largest choice of GA aircraft, by offering the most complete range of aircraft models.
