Luigi and Giovanni Pascale, founders of the Italian aircraft manufacturer Tecnam, created the company with the assistance of their passion for flying. They began their quest by constructing paragliders and powering their planes using scrap components.
Their aircraft evolved in the 1950s, thanks to the success of their P48 Astore in 1951, which sparked interest in subsequent types. Their team created a low-wing P52 Tigrotto and a one-seat P53 Aeroscooter, and the P55 Tornado’s success gave them the confidence to go even farther.
They kept inventing and constructing new versions and competing in air races for years. They produced their first twin-engine in the 1970s, which became the most popular European twin-engine in the United States. In 1986, the general aviation pair established the Tecnam after the Italian government acquired Pertenavia.
Tecnam now manufactures parts for other aircraft businesses in Capua, Italy, in addition to creating their models. They currently provide a wide range of single-engine light aircraft for general aviation, twin-engine light aircraft for small airlines, and even special-purpose aircraft for militaries, states, and SAR.
Tecnam P92 Echo MkII
Since its introduction in 1994, the Tecnam P92 has been a popular ultralight aircraft. It has had various variations over the years, and Tecnam now provides the P92 Echo MkII.
Today, the P92 is a single-engine, high-wing, two-seater with advanced technology, glass avionics, and a composite fuselage that retains the same flying qualities as previous models, earning a well-deserved reputation for being safe and simple to fly.
For an aircraft of this type, the interior is pleasant and spacious; leather and premium finishes provide luxury to the cabin, and newly designed seats and seat rails are simple to use. Optional chairs are also available from Tecnam, which provide superior interior comfort. The plane also has a luggage compartment with interior access and amenities such as armrests and USB chargers.
The new P92, on the other hand, is a modern aircraft thanks to its avionics. Tecnam provides a spacious cockpit with revised panels and glass-panel avionics visible even in direct sunlight.
While the aircraft’s base design includes cost-effective analog instrumentation, the aircraft may be outfitted with a variety of upgrades if desired. Garmin G3X touch suite with 10.6-inch displays, GPS, ELT, and other features is one of these alternatives. Two-axis autopilot, which is completely incorporated in the G3X, and ADS-B IN/OUT are two further customized choices.
When we return to the powerplant, we see again that the Italian company enjoys allowing their consumers to pick what they want.
The engine choice includes two types: Rotax 912ULS2 100 hp and Rotax 912 iS Sport Injection, while the propeller comes in variants: two blades or three blades, fixed or adjustable pitch, or variable pitch. It can run on both Mogas and Avgas as fuel.
P92 is available in US/LSA, ULM, and ULM 600 kg (for Germany) classes. P92 offers the convenience of ultra-light or extremely light aircraft, depending on your preference. If desired, a BRS ballistic parachute can be attached to increase its safety. The plane’s estimated price ranges from $160,000 to $200,000.

The Tecnam P2002 was created in 2002, as the model name suggests, and Tecnam presently makes two versions of it. According to Tecnam, it features a streamlined design with a low wing and bubble canopy, giving its clients a sporty and elegant way to the sky.
It almost approaches (117 kts) the maximum speed allowed by the light-sport category, which is 120 knots. The new Tecnam P2002 Sierra MkII is an improved version of the P2002 Sierra that meets customer demand for a more luxury aircraft.
The Sierra MkII includes a Garmin G3X avionics system with two screens that can display information as a complete EFIS panel or as an analog mimic panel; transitioning from one avionic configuration to another requires only a few screen taps.
With the glass canopy that gives exceptional vision surrounding the pilot, Tecnam offers leather and luxury finishes in the cabin, making the aircraft a “room with a view.” The seats and harnesses are designed to make the cabin easily accessible, and the owners will like the large luggage with internal access. It also comes with a BRS ballistic parachute.
There are two engine options: the Rotax 912ULS2 100 horsepower or the Rotax 912 iS Sport Injection. Different propellers, both fixed and variable pitch, can also be selected.
The starting price for a Sierra with Garmin G3X Touch avionics and two 10.6-inch displays varies from $150,000 to $160,000. The Tecnam P2002 Sierra is the company’s best-selling aircraft. It comes in three weight classes: US/LSA, ULM, and ULM 600 KG.
Another model is the P2002JF, which was approved later with a variable pitch propeller that gives a 5 to 7-knot improvement in cruising speed and an extra 150 to 200 fpm in climb performance. Because of the increased weight, the P2002JF variant is unlikely to be introduced in the United States, although it can be operated in Europe under the EASA CS-VLA category.

Astore is a low-wing, two-seat, bubble canopy, and all-metal airframe aircraft at a price point that makes it ideal for light sports ownership. Luigi Pascale, an Italian aircraft designer, gave the aircraft the name Astore.
Even though they are both low-wing aircrafts in the Tecnam P2002 Sierra and Astore portfolios, they have fewer commonalities than one might anticipate, such as their price range and wings.
The Astore features a larger and broader fuselage to give greater headroom, and while it is made of metal, the top is made of composite materials to provide a more aerodynamic form.
Astore is a true sport aircraft in terms of appearance, handling, and performance. External luggage is accessible from the interior in Astore, as it is in the company’s other single-engine aircraft. For the aircraft, a Garmin G3X avionics outfit is available.
Astore features a spacious cabin with two USB outlets and an iPad mini included in the purchasing price. Rotax 912 ULS2 100 hp, Rotax 912 iS Sport Injection, or Rotax 914 Turbo engines are available. The Tecnam Astore is available in two classes: US/LSA and ULM.
