TECNAM announced their partnership with Mach 1 Aviation to market the whole Tecnam fleet for the sales territories in South Africa. Mach 1, an innovative flight school  will not only be marketing the aircraft, but will be using the Tecnam aircraft for training. The flight school will be a trusty testimonial showcasing the advantages in having Tecnam aircraft in the fleet.

A P92 MkII will be touring South Africa to showcase it’s features and benefits. Furthermore a second aircraft will be used for initial training and an additional twin engine P2006T will follow by the end of the year.

Tecnam’s “Fleet Solution”, is the process in which a Flight School can offer different models to cover all the flight training requirements, from initial training to Complex (Multi engine, Variable Pitch Propeller and Retractable Landing Gear). With incredibly low operating costs, and competitive rates for students, the school has Tecnam as a single source for all needs. The Tecnam platforms for training is based on very modern aircraft models, that exceed a very strict and high level certification process, that, 1950’s design aircraft on the training market cannot meet.

Mach 1 will be utilizing the high wing P92 MkII LSA for initial training equipped with the Garmin G3X dual screen system. Students will then move to the P2006T light twin with Garmin G1000 NXi to complete their Multi-Commercial and Multi-Engine Instructor Certificates.

Chief Sales Officer Mubi Manaf says, “Our dream is to be able to provide a safe aviator training academy where students can earn a pilot’s license whilst owning their own aircraft. It makes sense for us to partner with an aircraft company that has high safety standards and whose aircrafts are compliant with the latest certifications, as customer safety is important to us. We are excited to be able to offer state-of-the-art Tecnam aeroplanes to customers in Africa. They are well-known amongst aviators for their easy  operating and cost effective features.”

 “We are very pleased to have Mach 1 Aviation join the Tecnam family. We consider South Africa an important market with a strong legacy in aviation and with a big potential for new innovative aircrafts.  We are confident that Tecnam customers and operators in South Africa will be well served by Mach 1 Aviation to the highest standards that they deserve” said Walter Da Costa, Chief Sales Officer.
