Ocean Air Flight Services, a Tecnam Flight Center located at the Watsonville Municipal Airport (WVI) in California, has taken delivery of its first Rotax-powered P2006T.
The Rotax 912S engines in the Italian-made P2006T have a combined fuel burn of around nine gallons an hour, providing a significant savings in fuel cost, school officials note, adding the aircraft will rent for an introductory rate of “under $200 per hour.”
“Our previous twin trainer was a Duchess,” says Dudley Clark, Director of Maintenance at Ocean Air Flight Services, “but the operating expenses for fuel and ongoing maintenance became cost prohibitive.”
The P2006T, built by Costruzioni Aeronautiche TECNAM, has already become the training twin of choice throughout Europe since its EASA certification in July 2009,” says Phil Solomon, C.E.O. of Tecnam North America.
Ocean Air Flight Services is a flight school and aircraft maintenance facility featuring new light sport aircraft (LSA) and offering training toward both the Private Pilot certificate and the Sport Pilot certification.
