Tecnam Appoints Oriens as Sales and Service Agent for UK and Ireland
Tecnam aircraft has announced that Oriens Aviation is to become their sales and service agent for the UK and Ireland. They will offer service on the full Tecnam range from the small P92 to the P2012. From their base at London Biggin Hill Airport (EGKB), Oriens Aviation will offer a full range of services to private aircraft owners and operators, including aircraft sales, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance, warranty work, aircraft management, AOC advisory, pilot training, operations and handling for its customers. The company holds the EASA Part 145 approval, alongside its UK CAA 145 and FAA Service Station approvals.
Tecnam has been serving the General Aviation community for over 70 years. From the latest generation of the Tecnam P92 to the best-selling P2002 and the P2006T Twin, Tecnam’s aircraft is firmly established as the aircraft of choice for General Aviation’s customers and operators. Using metal and composite with a mixed advanced technology, Tecnam developed the P2008 two-seater and then the four-seater single-engine P2010 Twenty Ten, now also available with Diesel-powered engine. Tecnam is one of the few manufacturers able to offer such a wide choice for the General Aviation market. With a large choice of power plants (Continental, Lycoming, Rotax), including Diesel, all aircraft are equipped with the most modern avionics by Garmin.
With the TECNAM P2012 Oriens Aviation will benefit from the unique specifications of the aircraft, widening and enriching its offer to potential customers. The aircraft can comfortably accommodate nine passengers with one or two crew members, the Traveller is a new-generation, piston-powered, twin-engine, high-wing, fixed-landing-gear aircraft. The P2012 series offers also Special Mission, full cargo, Combi and Air Ambulance configurations.
Commenting on the new partnership, CEO of Oriens Aviation, Edwin Brenninkmeyer said, “Oriens Aviation is delighted to be appointed the exclusive Tecnam distributor for the British Isles. We are at the dawn of a new era of aviation with the need to seek alternative, greener and more sustainable forms of flight, where evolution will be driven from the light end of the market. Tecnam uses its strong foundation of 73 years’ designing and building aircraft as a springboard for a highly innovative and forward-thinking approach that will give them an edge. We greatly value the opportunity to introduce new people to the joys of aviation through Tecnam and thereby build a strong pipeline of customers for the complete Oriens Aviation offering in the British Isles market.”
Also commenting was the CEO of Tecnam, Paolo Pascale Langer who added, “We are very pleased to have Oriens Aviation join the Tecnam family. At Tecnam, we feel strongly that the dealership sales and service model provides the highest level of local and personal service to British customers. We are confident that Tecnam customers and operators in the British Isles will be well served by Oriens Aviation to the highest standards that they deserve”
