Lorenzo De Stefano – Experimental Test Pilot
I had a very special feeling about the P2012 Traveller from the very first moment I saw the designs. Since the maiden flight, the Traveller has fully confirmed all the positive peculiarities that are so distinctive of Tecnam aircraft, making me feel at ease in the testing workload that was to follow. The feedback from the many pilots who had the opportunity to both test and fly the P2012 have all been extremely positive: flying this ‘bird’ is very satisfying indeed. The aircrafts outstanding flight characteristics go hand in hand with a very advanced avionic suite and the impressive performance delivered by the two Lycoming 375 HP engines. My activity in Tecnam as a test pilot is by its nature very intense, but at the same time incredibly rewarding: among other things, being on board a prototype at its first flight and having an active role in its development nowadays tends to be a privilege for just a few. For all this and more, I am very grateful to Tecnam, a company with such a proud history. A company that is committed to changing the face of aviation be it in the GA world or now with the P2012, in regional commercial airline service.
