Rolls-Royce motors are set to power Tecnam's all-electric P-Volt
Tecnam rolled out its latest product, the 11-seat P2012 Traveller, whose first customer is the US regional airline Cape Air.
The P2012 Traveller can accomodate up to nine passengers; its two Lycoming TEO-540-C1A engines are controlled electronically and represents the most advanced Lycoming technology.
The first two customer Tecnam P2012 Traveller aircraft have been delivered to the regional airline Cape Air. The 11-seat aircraft (one of which is pictured here) departed the manufacturer's headquarters in Capua, Italy, and transited through Groningen, Inverness, Reykjavik, Narsarsuaq and Goose Bay on their journey to Barnstable Airport in Hyannis, Massachusetts.
The P2012 Traveller’s first flight was on July 21,2016. By July, this prototype, l-PTFC, had logged more than 150 flight hours, with a second prototype due to fly later this year.
