Tecnam P2010

Tecnam P2010

Tecnam is an Italian airplane manufacturer founded in 1986, and was the result of the sale of the original airplane manufacturing company, Partenavia to the Italian government. Partenavia was founded by two aviation enthusiast brothers Luigi “Gino” Pascale, and Giovanni “Nino” Pascale in 1950 after some success with their P55 Tornado aircraft which won the Giro di Sicilia race in 1950. The Pascale’s brothers first aircraft, the P48 Astore, was actually built in their garage in Via Tasso in 1948.

The Tecnam P2010 is a four-seat, high wing, single engine light general aviation aircraft combining composite propeller, metal wings and tail plane on a composite fuselage with integrated fin. The aircraft was first shown in public at the 2011 AERO Friedrichshafen airshow and took its first flight in April of 2012. Tecnam sold 30 units at AERO 2011.
