Spanish academy FlyBy ordered two Tecnam P-Mentors to expand their fleet capabilities to be added at their current fleet of P2002JF and P2006T twin.

The choice of FlyBy is joining and confirming the new philosophy in Flight Training offered by Tecnam. This fleet expansion will improve the quality of training while limiting its cost for students and better preserving the natural 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.

The P-Mentor is the latest design from Tecnam: a IFR single engine two-seat, a simple and sustainable solution to guide student pilots from their first flight up to Instrument Rating, all in one two-seater single piston aircraft: IFR; PBN, RNAV; Variable Pitch, Autopilot, Simulated Retractable Gear Control; BRS.

The entire training syllabus with unprecedented fuel consumption and emissions, further enhancing the renowned profitability of Tecnam-made fleet.

For the first time ever, the extremely fuel efficient and low-emissions Rotax 912iSc becomes the earth of a full IFR-approved aircraft, coupled with an MT constant speed propeller.

Alex Alvarez, FlyBy CEO, commented: "Tecnam’s P-Mentor will allow us to significantly reduce our carbon footprint in IFR training with the added benefit of state-of-the-art instrumentation that will help us propel, even further, into our sustainable double-digit growth”

Tecnam’s Chief Sales Officer, Walter Da Costa, said: “Tecnam has always provided an excellent combination of technical specifications and value for money. With the P-Mentor, Tecnam has taken a huge leap forward with the addition of an affordable and smart IFR trainer. This will change the entire pilot training industry for IFR training.”
