Tecnam and Mermoz Academy announced today, during Pilot Expo Berlin, the signature of a contract for 10 Tecnam’s P-Mentor for its fleet expansion program. The aircraft will be used for both PPL – Private Pilot License – as well as the MPL – Multi Pilot License – courses. One of the reasons for this choice, beyond the great fuel consumption rates, is the lowest CO2 emissions, which makes the P-Mentor the aircraft of choice for students and Flight Schools. The P-Mentor is a two-seat single-engine piston aircraft fully IFR – is compliant with the latest CS-23 EASA & FAA requirements, allowing PBN/RNAV/AFCS capabilities. The modern flight school have today one platform to train students from their first flight up to CPL- IR, including Variable Pitch Propeller, Simulated Retractable Landing Gear and UPRT. The Mermoz Academy is a reference ATO in Europe since 1957, which operates a modern fleet of airplanes and the biggest Tecnam fleets in Europe. The academy trains 150 students a year on different bases South of France, (Nimes), near Paris (Tours), in the USA and Canada.
