Cessna 402 vs Tecnam P2012 Cabin Comparison


The easier cabin access is given by the high-wing configuration which also allows the propellers and engines to have high clearance from the ground and so no damages on semi prepared surfaces. Due to the high wing configuration is also possible to always guarantee a small CoG travel for various payload combinations.
Easy cabin access and high level of cabin comfort leads to an internal design also for some alternative internal arrangements such as cargo, medivac, VIP, etc.. which will guarantee the commercial success of the aircraft through easy reconfiguration for different possible applications. A spacious luggage compartment has been considered by Tecnam and placed in the rear part of the cabin (see figure) in addition with the front radome luggage compartment.
