G-ZOOG is the Tecnam UK demonstrator and is operated by the associated Airways Flying Club for MEP ratings/diffrences training, IR renewals, private hire (as it was today at Andrewsfield).

G-TEKK belongs to Aeros at Gloucester - the first of their P2006Ts and is working hard doing CPL/IR stuff as well as MEP ratings and private hire.

There are two other P2006Ts in the UK now as well: G-XVAX and G-TECT.

Incidentally, tail colours on ZOOG are the historic Chatham Dockyard colours and not a registered trade mark of any airline... AFC are no longer part of BA, but the colours look good and also adorn Tecnam UK's P2002-JF, G-TECI as well as the PA28s of AFC..

It's a great machine - 135 KIAS on 38 LPH total fuel burn - and it isn't scared of 500m grass strips. Long live the mighty Rotax...!

And, yes, it climbs well on one engine (either engine).... :)

I just read it is two hundred to hire per hour solo. Is that correct?

Some answers...

G-ZOOG is £200 hr + vat solo, £235 dual with Airways Flying Club. That's all in - no fuel surcharge or home landing fees at Wycombe Air Park. Bit of a bargain for a new, glass cockpit (Garmin G950) IFR retractable twin.

The design is very similar to the P68 - same designer, Professor Luigi Pascale. Tecnam is run by his nephew Paolo, although the Professor is still there every day.

It isn't really a 'remodel' of the P68. That was a 6 seater (4 in the P2006T) and powered by two 200hp Lycomings.

The P2006T works because of the Rotax 912S motors - and an added bonus is that the aircraft is EASA certified to run either Avgas or Mogas with up to 10% Ethanol.

In reality it'll do everything an SR20 does (same real world cruise speed, plus a bit better load carrying, better fuel burn with the Tecnam) - as well as operating of grass with no prop clearance worries.... ;)

I still instruct for Aeros and we do have the said Tecnam (G-TEKK), I am not sure how much it is to hire out though but there is a saving if you do the CPL/IR on that as opposed to the Seneca. The fuel burn figures are excellent.

If you google it, their press release last year said something like £200 hire, £235 for MEIR training. Which is far less than I paid p/h on another taxless-fuel efficient aeroplane (DA42)
