Here is a video of a youtube channel I watch (Steveo1kinevo) where the one Engine is turned off on the Tecnam P2006T.

Thanks GBC .Always good to have possitive people out there. Proper answer on the question about maintaing or not on the P2006T.
This is a magnifiscent aircraft. Expensive to puchase but on the other hand its a money maker. Difficult descision wheter I should keep her or sell.
New list price ZAR 7,5000.00 plus import cost Two x40ft containers and Vat upon all.
THEN..........be carefull who you appoint to re-assemble the wing assy.Apparently only one AMO that is qualified)...one is in for the surpricse of your lifetime!!
Enginesd are Rotax 912 S3(that is certified)914 cannot run continiuos long enough on full RPM to keep the craft in the air tahs why 912 was the option. Agree If 915 can be added!! Well thas another story for the facrtory for it runs into millions of Euro,s to get Certification on an engine swop( mod)
Sure Tecnam will bring out another one at a later stage with 915 for a hack of a price ( it will be called something else.)However the Turbo is still a problem for maintaing full power and RPM.
Tecnam make facelift aircraft and sell those for much more than the former model.

Hi Everyone

I would like to add my opinion to this forum, it may be longwinded but it may also give a little unbiased view.

I have recently flown a number of hours on this specific aircraft as I needed to re-do my ME rating having not flown twins for many years.

This ac may seem expensive but lets compare it to a recent model C182 which will give similar payloads and speeds (I dont say performance because you cant compare apples and peaches)

A newish 182 will set you back maybe $250 000 to $300 000 ex VAT so about R4.5 to R5mil. So I think its a bargain at this price.

Come overhaul time, you will spend much less on the Rotaxes than on Conti's or Lyco's.

The aircraft is not huge inside but I was quite comfortable in the cockpit (I am 6'3" and 105kg) enough space in the back. You would not load 4 adults and full fuel though. But as a family tourer its a safe and handy little AC.

The aircraft is reasonably uncomplicated and if you follow the checklists (as you should) there is no drama. The Rotaxes are easy to manage and start with a quick push of the starter.

I was a little sceptical at first but once I had done and hour or two I really warmed up to the the little plane. She climbs well here at altitude, cruises in a respectable 135 to 140kt range (maybe a kt or 2 slower than a 182) and uses very little fuel. This is where the big plus is, she uses just over 10gph, even less than a 182. (@12gph)

In the GF she is easy to handle and stable in all the required manoeuvres, turns well, she is quite responsive and stalls are docile and easy to manage and recover, even in single engine, dirty configuration.

Single engine ops (someone asked in a previous post about performance, if any) I can tell you it is a very capable aircraft both at altitude and after take off here on the highveld. She remains responsive and even at 7000ft she will maintain ok with full fuel and 3 adults. At the coast she will jump!

We did not simulate EFATO with 3 up but with full fuel and 2 up, she climbed away quite capably, one has to clean up quickly though. She never frightened me one bit, all smooth and no drama.

So my conclusion is that it is good bang for the buck, its a safe light twin and is reasonably easy to operate, so certainly a good option for a new-to-twins pilot. I guess thats what makes it a good lead-in trainer on ME, but it will be a step up to Baron or similar more complex hot ship.

To all the light twin detractors out there who are on about light twins and maintaining at altitude, this ac has a better maintain or descend ratio than a 182 with one engine out. :)
