Tecnam conquers Aconcagua

At more nearly 23,000 ft, Aconcagua is the highest mountain in both the Southern and Western hemispheres.

It has been a long held ambition of Mario Cardama, Tecnam’s Argentina based dealer to fly over Mount Aconcagua. On the 24th of May, Mario achieved his lifelong ambition as he powered his Tecnam P92 Tail Dragger up to 22,840 ft and over the summit.

"If I can fly a plane, what else can I do?"

A spectacular sight over the ‘White Cliffs of Dover’ as G-UCAN Aerobility’s first P2002JF is photographed on its delivery flight to the UK.

This specially adapted Tecnam P2002JF is the first worldwide CS-VLA certified aircraft factory built with disabled hand controls (EASA approval certificate No. 10048554) and will
enable Aerobility to to expand its programme to allow disabled people, irrespective of disability, to enjoy the pleasure of flight.

About Aerobility "...the home of disabled flying"
Aerobility is a registered UK based charity founded in 1993 offering disabled people, without exception, the opportunity to fly an aeroplane.
For some, just that amazing first flight is enough to change their outlook on disability forever:

Others, realising that the fantasy of flight is truly in their grasp, decide to continue their training - many all the way to securing a Private Pilot's Licence, some even with an outlook to commercial flying.
Aerobility provides 'experience of a lifetime' trial flying lessons for as many terminally ill and disabled people as possible.

Tecnam P2002 offers you even lower operating costs

The P2002 powered by the Rotax 912 iS engine is now available.

Why fly a single that burns 15lt/hr of fuel when the new Rotax 912 iS powered P2002 only burns 12 lt/hr! 

Oh yes and it’s even quieter too!
