    Exterior photography of the Tecnam P2010. Sebring Regional Airport (SEF) Sebring FL USA


  • the Italian challenger blends a carbon fiber fuselage with an all-metal wing, rudder, and stabilator, and offers specifications similar to those of the Cessna 172. The standard useful load of the P2010 is 992 pounds, better than the standard Cessna 172 useful load of 918 pounds. (The actual useful load of the P2010 flown at Tecnam’s United States headquarters in Sebring, Florida, is 910 pounds.) A new diesel engine option means even more possibilities for worldwide customers.
