Tecnam announced today that Sevenair Academy, Portugal’s leading flight training organisation (FTO) has placed and order for 10 Tecnam P2008JC Mk II aeroplanes.
Sevenair currently operates a training fleet of 20 aircraft, which includes both the Tecnam P2010 and P2006T Twin. This new and significant investment is part of Sevenair’s commitment to continue to not only become one of Europe best and largest FTO’s but ensure potential commercial pilots are being trained on state-of-the-art aircraft such as on its wide range of Tecnam models.
2018 sees the Sevenair Academy celebrating 30 years of operations. Throughout this period, it has trained thousands of pilots, aircraft maintenance technicians and flight dispatchers which are now employed by some of the largest airlines in the world
Alexandre Alves, Chief Commercial Officer of Sevenair Group said:
“The Tecnam P2008JC Mk II is, without doubt, the best replacement for our legacy trainers such as the Cessna 152, due to its design, superlative performance, technology and innovation. Our Tecnam aeroplanes have more than proven their value too in terms of operational capability, reliability, training advantages and cost-effectiveness.”
Walter Da Costa, Tecnam Global Sales and Marketing Director said:
“This major acquisition reaffirms the Sevenair Academy endorsement of the superlative range of Tecnam aeroplanes. Their Tecnam fleet enables Sevenair to offer their students the most cost-effective training by employing state of the art aircraft, equipped with advanced avionics.”
