Passengers will be accommodated in a cabin whose measures are constant for the whole length of the fuselage extension as opposed to ‘legacy’ aircraft in this class which traditionally feature a tapered fuselage in the back portion, there providing less space and especially disadvantaging passengers seated in the rear rows Tecnam P2012 has the advantage of having a cabin whose measures are constant for its whole extension, so that the ergonomy remains the same for all passengers and seats.
The conclusion is that advantages of the P2012 configuration include:
- P2012 offers additional 0.26ft (80mm) for overhead space compared with its competitors;
- P2012 offers additional 0.15ft (46mm) of cabin width;
- P2012 offers a seats pitch of 32in (0.813m).
Following pictures show the ventilation layout and a preliminary interior configuration.
The access to the cabin is enabled via three doors, two for flight crew and one in the rear side divided in 3 separate hatches for passenger’s access only or for cargo/baggage loading purposes. An integrated handrail allows a comfortable entrance and exit.
