Tecnam has secured European validation for the second-generation version of its P2008JC piston single, 10 years after the two-seat, high-wing type was launched.

The Italian airframer is now preparing to deliver the first example to Polish flight training academy and long-time customer Bartolini Air.



The P2008JC MkII was launched in 2017 and features a number of enhancements, including a Garmin G3X Touch flightdeck equipped with synthetic vision; an improved interior lighting system featuring both ambient light and dimmer switches; enhanced seating; redesigned doors and the choice of a two- or three-blade propeller. The latter offering is likely to appeal to those owners who operate into noise-controlled airfields, says Tecnam.

Bartolini has an order for seven P2008JC MkIIs, which will be added to its fleet of eight piston singles – including six two-seat P2002JFs and a four-seat P2010 – and three P2006T piston twins.
