As part of its 65th anniversary celebrations, Tecnam debuted the Tecnam Astore next-generation Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) at AERO 2013 in Friedrichshafen, Germany.
The Tecnam Astore is an all-new two-seat, low-wing airplane developed by Tecnam’s renowned Head of Aircraft Design, Professor Luigi Pascale.
Pascale has named his latest creation in honor of his first production aircraft, The P48 Astore.
The Tecnam ‘Astore’ design includes innovations such as an Apple iPad mini supplied with each aircraft as standard. The Levil G Mini, using its WiFi connection, provides a full Primary Flight Display on the iPad mini using compatible third party applications such as Air Navigation Pro or similar. Additionally, the pre-installed dedicated app will compute the actual Weight and Balance, provide checklists and include all the Pilot Operating Handbook sections.
Customers have a choice of powerplants among the Rotax 912ULS, the all new 912iS or the Rotax 914 engine. Operators may choose both mogas and avgas to fuel their Astore.
