Certification of the Variable Pitch Propeller version of the P2002JF results in a more efficient and cost effective single engine aeroplane

Tecnam P2002JF Variable Pitch Propeller aircraft certified by EASA

Tecnam today announced that the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) has issued Major Change Approval 10045205 certifying the Tecnam P2002JF Variable Pitch Propeller version of Tecnam's best-selling single.

EASA's certification of the Tecnam P2002JF Variable Pitch Propeller model builds on Tecnam's aspiration to afford customers and operators even more options that offer safer, smoother and more cost efficient flying experiences.

Key advantages of the Tecnam P2002JF Variable Pitch Propeller include;

• Better cruise and climb performances: maximum horizontal speed at maximum continuous power is increased of about 5-7 kias, VS increase of 150-200 ft/min;

• Better cruise comfort: regulation of propeller RPM at maximum power, lower noise and improved fuel consumption control;

• Availability of all the maximum deliverable power, at all speeds as a function of density altitude;

Flight Schools will be able to offer lower cost "complex type" aircraft RPM management training on the Tecnam P2002JF VP Propeller.

The Tecnam P2002JF VP version adds just 5 more kilos of basic empty weight, in comparison to a traditional fixed pitch propeller aircraft. With more weight in the nose (Jostroy rpm regulator, heavier propeller etc.) flying qualities are improved with front CG, rather than tail CG. Any performance loss due to this modest CG nose shift is risible and is compensated by better propeller power ratio.

The Tecnam P2002JF is a two seat low wing aeroplane that offers superlative performance. Tecnam's history of innovative design and Italian styling, coupled with its association with Rotax engines has resulted in aeroplanes of unbeatable value making them the fastest selling EASA CS-VLA certified aeroplanes in the sky!
