Keeping customers happy

As we read in Issue 146, Tecnam is an Italian aircraft manufacturer that has produced the increasingly popular P2006T four-seat light twin. The type is commonly used as a private aircraft and twin-engine trainer. Within a couple of years of the maiden flight of the P2006T, Tecnam was approached by Massachusetts commuter airline Cape Air to see if it could design and build a new aircraft to replace its ageing fleet of 83 Cessna 402s. Cape Air needed an aircraft that would ideally accommodate up to 10 passengers for its New England routes, while also being cheap to operate and maintain.
