The success at AERO is due in part to Tecnam’s strategy to offer student pilots the most modern training aircraft which provide a complete solution from ab-initio to a multi-engine rating. Choosing a Tecnam fleet solution for training is also a great deal for the environment. Recent study shows that flight schools operating with TECNAM single and twin-engine fleet can reduce emissions by up to 60%: 10 tons of CO2 for each student by the time they receive their Commercial Pilot License. Introducing the P-Mentor coupled with a P2006T, is a real sustainable and profitable solution for any modern flight school.
