These aircraft will also start to serve international routes of the airline this year. Aeroflot’s operations confirm that the aircraft is able to serve efficiently regional routes with the high frequency of departure.

“The Tecnam P2006T Next-Generation twin has established itself as a real game changer’’ said Phil Solomon, CEO of Tecnam North America. ‘’We have a number of potential Canadian customers eagerly anticipating Transport Canada’s certification of the Tecnam Twin, so we expect to announce our first orders very soon.’’

‘’I am delighted that Transport Canada certification of the Tecnam P2006T Next-Generation twin results in this wonderful aircraft now being available for sale through all our 50 worldwide distributors’’ said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam’s Managing Director. ‘’I am especially grateful to the Tecnam certification and production teams. It’s a remarkable achievement. We have delivered nearly 100 Tecnam P2006T Next-Generation twins and with many more on order, we have now accelerated production to meet this unprecedented demand, resulting in our delivering a Tecnam P2006T every 5 days, firmly establishing Tecnam as the world’s Number 1 for light twin aircraft deliveries’’.
