Tecnam announces the launch of the 'Astore' next-generation Light Sport Aircraft

Tecnam today announced that it will reveal the Tecnam 'Astore' next-generation Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) at AERO 2013 Friedrichshafen, Germany on the 24th of April.

The Tecnam Astore is an all new two seat, low wing aeroplane that offers superlative performance.

For 65 years Tecnam has built its reputation through the development of innovative, stylish and affordable aeroplanes for all aspects of General Aviation flying. What could be more fitting in this special anniversary year than for Professor Luigi Pascale, Tecnam's legendary Head of Aircraft Design, to name his new creation in honour of his first production aircraft, The P48 Astore.

The Tecnam 'Astore' design affords the pilot the smoothest and most pleasurable flight with innovations such as an Apple iPad® mini supplied with each aircraft as standard. The Levil G Mini, using its WiFi connection, provides a full Primary Flight Display on the iPad® mini using compatible third party applications such as Air Navigation Pro or similar. Additionally, the pre-installed dedicated app will compute the actual Weight and Balance, provide checklists and include all the Pilot Operating Handbook sections. Everything at his fingertips!

Tecnam's passion to make the flying experience as enjoyable as possible includes a new ergonomically designed interior allowing for enhanced all round visibility, control and switches that can be easily reached and the use of softer materials affording a more comfortable flight.

Low operating costs are assured through Tecnam's close association with Rotax. All of this results in a remarkably efficient aeroplane, with customers being offered a choice of how they want their Tecnam 'Astore' powered, be it with the Rotax 912ULS, the all new 912iS or the Rotax 914 engine.

"We have built our reputation at Tecnam on producing aeroplanes that offer outstanding value, beauty and efficiency" said Paolo Pascale, Tecnam's Managing Director. 'I am delighted we are able to celebrate Tecnam's 65th anniversary by introducing the Tecnam 'Astore' as the new addition to our extensive range of aeroplanes that ensure as wide an audience as possible can enjoy the pleasure of flying a Tecnam aeroplane."
