Spanish ONE AIR flight school acquired  five additional Tecnam P2008JC MkII Premium. ONE AIR was the first Spanish flight school to introduce and offer the P2008JC with premium equipment to their students. The single-engine Tecnam P2008’s versatility and ease of use has firmly established it as the aircraft of choice for Flight Training Organisations worldwide. With this acquisition Grupo One Air will have today 8 Tecnam P2008JC MkII and one P2006T MkII.

With its carbon-fibre fuselage, metal wings and stabilator, the Tecnam P2008JC has a vast number of advantages over traditional aircraft. This combination of both composite material and metal has resulted in a more fuel-efficient and much quieter aircraft. The Tecnam P2008JC MkII version features a number of significant enhancements. Among these are a new avionics suite, including a new design of both the dashboard and glare shield, thereby enabling the introduction of the Garmin’s innovative G3X Touch display with a MD302 attitude instrument, also available as VFR Night.

Grupo One Air General Manager, Agustín Cabanillas , commented:"We are very happy to collaborate with Tecnam again and expand our fleet so that our students can enjoy and carry out their training on new generation aircraft.” 

Tecnam Chief Sales Officer, Walter Da Costa, said: “We are honoured that One Air is expanding its fleet with our aircraft. We are also proud to partner with One Air and be a part of their growth and excellence.” 

Tradition, innovation and vision. Those factors are spearheading Tecnam to wider horizons. Based on recent data and industry benchmarks, Tecnam is offering the greenest training fleet in the world. Flight schools operating Tecanm’s single- and twin-engine fleet can save as much as 10 tonnes of CO2 emissions for every single student graduating with a Commercial Pilot License – a 60% reduction compared to fleet using 100LL fuel on a journey of 155 flight hours, 30h of which on twin.
