Back in 2020, Apex Aviation decided to purchase a state-of-the-art multi-mission P2012 Sentinel SMP to enhance the organisation’s operational capabilities. Upon joining the company’s fleet in 2021, the first P2012 Sentinel SMP was deployed on multiple missions, including parachute jumping and aerial tours. With Medevac operations on the horizon, Apex Aviation has introduced a second P2012 SMP to join the fleet in 2023. It is now possible to draw a balance with some very impressive figures after a year of emergency medical operations. In 2023, Apex flew 103 missions with the P2012, totalling 333 flight hours, bringing relief and assistance to various areas in Taiwan, and in many cases saving lives. Apex MEDEVAC team consists of 8 pilots, 5 mechanics, for 4 Tecnam P2012s.

In air rescue, nobody and nothing can fail, a principle that both people and aircraft must obey. Apex has expanded its operations with the multi-mission capabilities of the P2012 Sentinel SMP performing: passenger transportation, air ambulance missions, sightseeing tours, parachute jumping, aerial photography and more. Most operations are to/from RCBS Kinnen and RCSS Taipei Songshan Airport.

Italian-made P2012 aircraft is capable of carrying nine passengers and two pilots. The introduction of the aircraft into the Apex fleet provides their customers with cost-effective and various configuration options, while always offering experiences that exceed passenger’s expectation, such as air-conditioning, in-seat power, widest leg-room in its class and under-seat storage space.Cutting-edge avionics by Garmin offers pilots all the information they require for day, night, IFR and PBN operations, making operations to any airfield another key factor in the choice of aircraft.

Giovanni Pascale Langer, Managing Director TECNAM, commented: “APEX is the perfect customer for our P2012. They can take full advantage of the multi-mission capabilities of our 11-seater. This way they can tailor different missions with the same platform”.

Wilson Chien Yu Kao, CEO Apex Aviation said: “We believe it’s the spacious cabin and low operating costs that set the P2012 apart, while advanced avionics provide the pilot with situational awareness not found in other last-generation competitors. In Taiwan the P2012 is the best choice because of its low operating costs. However, we see many potential contracts in Taiwan that make P2012 the only choice for fixed wing operations.”

Apex is the first and only professional flight training organization in Taiwan, headquartered in the metropolitan area of Taipei and our flight training base is located in beautiful sunny Taitung Fengnian (RCFN) Airport.
