Production of first P2012 Traveller for Cape Air underway

Slated for delivery to launch customer Cape Air in early 2019, key members of its leadership team including Dan Wolf, Founder & CEO and Jim Goddard, SVP Fleet & Technical Operations, recently visited Tecnam to inspect the significant progress made on the first P2012 Travellers to be delivered.



The next-generation 11 seat P2012 Traveller has been much anticipated by many airlines around the globe.

The next-generation 11 seat P2012 Traveller has been much anticipated by many airlines, who have been demanding a replacement for the hundreds of ‘heritage’ airplanes in the FAR23/CS23 category currently in service around the world.

Cape Air will be the world’s first airline to place the P2012 into commercial service.

The P2012 test and certification is at an advanced stage. The first two prototypes have completed over 80% of the introduction to service programme and have achieved nearly 400 flight test hours.

“We are very proud to have Cape Air as our launch customer. The P2012 Traveller is undoubtedly set to open a new chapter in aviation. We could have no better ambassador for this game changing aeroplane then regional aviation leaders Cape Air.” said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam CEO.



Key members of Cape Air recently visited Tecnam to inspect the significant progress made on the first P2012 Travellers to be delivered.

Cape Air has been a key partner in the development of the Traveller, along with Lycoming engines and Garmin avionics. EASA and FAA certification is on track for 2018, with an initial delivery of the first 20 airplanes beginning in January 2019.

About TECNAM; “Quality Aircraft since 1948”

TECNAM's roots go all the way back to the Italian brothers Luigi and Giovanni Pascale who began to develop and produce innovative aircraft soon after the end of WWII. Since those early beginnings, the family has continued to create original models, first gaining worldwide recognition under the name Partenavia, which translates as " Naples Aviation".

Costruzioni Aeronautiche TECNAM was established in March 1986 and now operates in three production facilities. The Casoria facility is located adjacent to Naples' Capodichino Airport while the main factory is next to the “Oreste Salomone” Airport in Capua. Recently a new facility was established in Sebring, Florida, USA and in Australia to serve and support the needs of Tecnam's local owners and operators.
