Australia largest flight training organizations, with more than 30 aircraft, The Royal Aero Club of Western Australia, which will celebrate its 95 year anniversary in August, will add Tecnam P-Mentors to its fleet via a long term cross hire agreement. Deliveries will commence with two of the IFR certified, auto pilot equipped, two-seat, Rotax powered, aircraft commencing in July of 2024, which will accelerate the modernization program of the club’s training fleet.

Walter De Costa, Tecnam Global Sales & Marketing Director, commented: “Since its launch in 2022, the P-Mentor has, for good reason, been a huge seller. Flight schools can conduct ab initio, private, commercial, and instrument training all in the one aircraft, while enjoying exceptionally low operating costs. We are delighted that RACWA chose Tecnam, this is the second leading flight school in Australia to choose the P-Mentor, and more will surely follow.”

Alan Wilson, CEO, RACWA, stated: RACWA is going through an exciting period of fleet renewal and having an efficient, contemporary and sophisticated aircraft such as the Tecnam P-Mentor is a welcome addition to our fleet.  The P-Mentor will complement our flying program for students and members alike and is directly aligned with our journey of lessening our carbon footprint.  We were impressed by the support we received from Tecnam and the strong local teams’ expertise in parts and technical support.”

Michael Loccisano, CEO of Hallmarc Aviation, added: From the moment Tecnam announced the FAA / EASA IFR-certified P-Mentor, we knew it would be the perfect replacement for aging legacy training fleets in Australia. No other certified training aircraft can match its technological advancement, low acquisition costs, low operation cost; safety features, ease of flight, attractive design, short order to delivery times, and local support. The ability for students to seamlessly step up through the Tecnam fleet – all the way to an 11-seat commuter airliner, is a major advantage for flight schools, and their students with a commercial or airline career in mind.”
