Rotax 912iS is now in service powering the Tecnam P2008

Tecnam delivers first Rotax 912iS powered P2008

Tecnam today celebrated the delivery of the first two production standard Tecnam P2008's fitted with the all new Rotax 912iS (injection) engine.

With the delivery today of a Tecnam P2008 powered by the all news Rotax 912iS engine, to both the USA and Colombia, Tecnam further enhances its reputation for producing and delivering some of the most cost effective and environmentally friendly aeorplanes in the sky.

The single-engined Tecnam P2008 has already established itself a one of Tecnam's best sellers. With its carbon-fibre fuselage, metals wings and stabilator, the Tecnam P2008 is already a popular choice amongst a number of Flight Training Organisations.

The Tecnam P2008 powered by the Rotax 912iS engine is delivering significantly better fuel efficiency than comparable light sport and ultra-light.

Rotax have incorporated technology enhancements such as a modern fuel injection system and digital engine control unit (ECU) to the Rotax 912iS engine to ensure optimal fuel and air mixture at any altitude for longer flight range, lower operating costs and CO2 emission reduction. The development of a 4-stroke, 4-cylinder 100 hp aircraft engine with a redundant electronic fuel injection system is a first in the industry

The injection system ensures the best fuel and air mixture on each cylinder at every possible altitude while delivering the same 100 hp as the traditional Rotax 912 ULS engine and the new Rotax 912 iS engine also provides a time of 2,000 hours between overhauls (TBO); the same TBO as the 912 engine.

"We have built our reputation on producing some of the most innovative, stylish and economical aeroplanes available in the General Aviation marketplace," said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam's Managing Director. "The all new Rotax 912iS should reduce fuel costs (be it Mogas or Avgas) by 20%."
