Technam P2012 STOL achieves EASA-Certification

The Short TakeOff and Landing variant of the P2012 Traveller is designed to operate in the world’s most demanding commercial airports. Tecnam announced that the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has awarded full-type certification to the P2012 Traveller in its STOL variant. The P2012 STOL aircraft, specifically designed for short take-off and Landing operations, is engineered and tailored to operate from airports and airstrips characterized by extremely short runways and extreme operational constraints. The 18-month extensive certification campaign ensured impressive Takeoff and Landing performance, while still maintaining a 99% commonality of parts with the standard P2012 Traveller series aircraft to enhance the P2012 STOL supportability and to provide a “fleet” option.

Addressing the needs of a niche market that has been underdeveloped and unsupported for decades, the P2012 STOL Tecnam once again provides a solution for operators seeking a modern, spacious, comfortable, safe yet stylish aircraft with outstanding STOL capabilities for their business. With the production aircraft already in the final stage of the assembly line, the P2012 STOL is ready for the first deliveries to customers filling an uncovered gap in commercial aviation.
