Mount Royal University in Calgary, Canada, has placed an order for three Tecnam P2006T twin aircraft for its professional aviation program.
Within days of Transport Canada’s certification on the Tecnam P2006T twin, Canada’s Mount Royal University placed the order for its flight training fleet. All three Tecnam P2006T twins will be shipped to Calgary during December and will be available to train the next generation of professional commercial pilots in early 2012.
Mount Royal University’s Tecnam P2006T fleet will be equipped with the Garmin 950 suite, ADF and S-Tec 55X autopilots.
When Mount Royal first opened its doors more than 100 years ago in September 1911, it welcomed 179 students. Today, some 12,000 students take a variety of programs. For more than 40 years, MRU has also offered an integrated aviation program.
“MRU is looking forward to incorporating the three Tecnam P2006T aircraft into our fleet,’’ said Dr. Kori Street, chair of Aviation. “We believe that the addition of the Tecnams into our program will enhance the aviation education we provide and better prepare our students for a successful future in the aviation industry.”
