Tecnam announced today that the Polish Medical Air Rescue (PMAR) has placed an order for three Tecnam P2008JC Mk II aeroplanes.
PMAR have transferred over 116,000 patients since its inception in 2000, utilising its fleet of 2 aircrafts and 27 helicopters, performing nearly 10,000 flights this year alone.
The introduction of the Tecnam P2008JC MkII will enable PMAR to meet internally its growing training needs as it attracts more pilots to its operation.
The single-engine Tecnam P2008’s versatility and ease of use has established it as both the aircraft of choice for Flight Training Organisations worldwide.
With its carbon-fibre fuselage, metals wings and stabilator, the Tecnam P2008 JC has a vast number of advantages over traditional aircraft. This combination of both composite material and metal has resulted in a more fuel efficient and much quieter aircraft.
The Tecnam P2008JC MkII version features a number of significant enhancements. These include a new avionic suite, including a new design of both the dashboard and glare shield, thereby enabling the introduction of the Garmin’s innovative G3X Touch display with a MD302 attitude instrument and is also available as VFR Night.
Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s CEO said, “We were delighted to be invited to participate in Polish Medical Air Rescue’s rigorous selection and evaluation process and we are delighted to that we were selected above a number of other competitors. PMAR not only valued the overall benefits the P2008JC MkII affords them as a training aircraft, but particularly appreciated the on-going services and support that Tecnam have firmly established a great reputation for”.
