On June 27th 2017 EASA issued its Major Change approval for the G1000Nxi avionics suite in the P2006T. The G1000Nxi is available in the MkII version of the P2006T and is now available for delivery in EASA countries.  The FAA validation of this major change is now underway and will be completed in the coming weeks.

EASA Major Change Certificate:

This year at AERO Friedrichshafen Tecnam announced a major upgrade to its best- selling P2006T next-generationTwin. With P2006T Twin’s operating in 40 countries worldwide, it is already firmly established as the twin aircraft of choice by both leading Flight Training Organizations and private owners alike. The P2006T Twin MkII offers unbeatable value, coupled with low operating and ownership costs, innovative design and Italian styling. The Rotax ‘912S3’ allows the Tecnam P2006T to lead with respect to the environment too. With both a remarkable fuel saving offering and much lower noise emissions, it has redefined both the flight training and aircraft ownership experience in one step.

The P2006T Twin MkII features a number of significant enhancements including the introduction of the Garmin G1000 NxiNext Generation Flight Deck and improved levels of comfort for passengers and pilots alike. Garmin’s innovative G1000 Nxi state-of-the-art avionics platform features wireless cockpit connectivity, including wireless database updates using Garmin Flight Stream, enhanced situational awareness with ‘SurfaceWatch’, visual approaches, map overlay on the HSI and more. Pilots will appreciate the G1000 Nxi’s processing power that supports even faster map rendering and smoother panning throughout the displays. Garmin has focused on saving valuable time in the cockpit with the displays initializing within seconds after start-up, thereby providing immediate access to flight plan data and frequencies.

As a further safety enhancement Tecnam have now included the provision ADS-B In and Out as standard on all P2006T aircraft. Cabin upgrades include a new seat design, with electronic switches to control height and comfort and an improved lighting system featuring both ambient light and dimmer switches.

“Be it major enhancements such as the introduction of Garmin’s state-of-the-art avionics suite or even down to the provision of ADS-B In and out along with USB ports, Tecnam is committed to constantly evolving and improving its product offering, to ensure our customers always have the benefit of all the latest innovations the GA world has to offer” said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s CEO.

The Tecnam P2006T Twin MkII is available in EASA countries now and preorder is available for the U.S.
