Tecnam revealed today at AERO Friedrichshafen a substantially upgraded and improved Mark II version of the P2002 Sierra featuring the Rotax 915 iS/ISC engine.
Based on the popular Rotax 912/914 engine series, the Rotax 915 iS/iSC 135hp engine offers the best power-to-weight ratio in its class, with full take-off power up to at least 15,000 feet (4,570 m) and a service ceiling of 23,000 feet (7,010 m).
The introduction of the P2002 Sierra MkII powered by the Rotax 915 iS/iSC engine is in response to Tecnam’s customers demand for a modern, more powerful engine allowing higher payload and shorter take-offs. This 4-stroke, 4- cylinder turbocharged engine with intercooler and a redundant fuel injection system, delivers the most advanced aircraft engine technology resulting in lower operating costs and ease of use.
Available in the LSA category from late 2017, the P2002 Sierra MkII also features a number of other enhancements including;
• Larger cabin, with new premium interior design.
• Re-designed canopy with more headroom.
• A new locking mechanism that reduces noise levels.
• Seats with extra fore and aft adjustment.
• State of art avionics.
• Several options for paint colours and interior fabrics
“Tecnam always strives to continually improve and update its product range” said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s CEO. “Innovation has always been a part of Tecnam’s DNA and we will do all possible to ensure our customers always benefit from operating efficient and cost effective aeroplanes that are a pleasure to fly”.
