Tecnam Aircraft began customer deliveries for P-Mentor Single Engine IFR Part 23 certified two seat platform. This aircraft is equipped with the latest Garmin G3X Touch Screen avionics suite, providing students and instructors with a modern and intuitive interface to enhance the flight training experience. The P-Mentor offers a very low fuel consumption of (3.7 GPH) while delivering a high level of cost efficiency allowing for all day training without having to stop for re fueling thus reducing costs as well as ground and operational interruptions. Along with the delivery of the aircraft, a maintenance and familiarization course was also provided to the technicians and pilots.

Giovanni Pascale Langer, Managing Director, Tecnam Aircraft commented: “Beginning P-Mentor customer deliveries less than one month after achieving Federal Aviation Administration Type Certification marks another incredible milestone of raising the bar for the General Aviation Marketplace.The P-Mentor has already begun to transform the training marketplace around the world as Flight Schools recognize that they cannot continue to operate legacy aircraft. The P-Mentor offers a unique combination of unparalleled safety, performance and cost-effectiveness.”

David Copeland, Director of Sales said: “Since 1948, Tecnam has always been at the forefront of aviation innovation. With the P-Mentor, we are setting a new standard in the IFR training environment, offering a aircraft that not only meets but exceeds the rigorous demands of the aviation training community.”

Kristen Conklin, President; HCH Aviation stated: “Today marks not only a monumental day for Tecnam but also for our Flight Program in partnership with Stephen F. Austin University. The delivery of the P-Mentor caps off our conversion of our fleet to an all inclusive Tecnam Flight Program. The innovation, low operational cost and aerodynamics of this platform are perfect for our Students and our operations. This combined with the reliability of the Tecnam Aircraft made it a very easy decision to choose the P-Mentor.”
