Stapleford Flight Centre has taken delivery of its first Tecnam P2008JC; appropriately registered G-JSFC.

The delivery begins an evaluation period which, if successful, will result in SFC continuing to upgrade its single-engine fleet with Tecnam single engine aircraft.


The newest model in the Tecnam two-seat range was flown from Capua Italy by two of SFC's senior Flight Instructors, using only France for tech-stops. The pilots were delighted with the new type and are looking forward to begining their teaching role in the exciting, modern, glass cockpit trainer / tourer.

CAA took only hours to Certify the aeroplane and it was thus available for flight instructing service within a day of arriving at the maintenance facility in UK.
