The P2002 Sierra (JF mean the certified version) is a two-seater side by side, low wing aircraft. The P2002 features superlative performance and flying qualities, now confirmed by hundreds of P2002 sold throughout the world and validated in 15 countries other than Europe.
The ease of piloting and maintenance make this aircraft an excellent solution for training in flight schools. It is also an ideal platform for surveillance and as well as, of course, for pure recreational and private use.
The Tecnam P2002 structure is based on a steel tubing cabin truss covered by aluminium sheets. The wing is all aluminium made and built with a single spar and full metal torsion box. The wing's leading edges incorporate the fuel tanks (50 Lt - 13.2 gal each). The sliding canopy allows 360° of vision in the cockpit and the wide slotted flaps, electrically activated, allow stall speed lower than 40 Kts and allows the aircraft to perform steep approaches and easier landings. The all aluminium ailerons are effective and ensure a quick roll rate without being overly sensitive.
