The Fleet

Tecnam P2002-JF Sierra

Acquired thanks to a generous grant from the RAF Sports Board and the RAF Benevolent Fund, the Tecnam P2002-JF Sierra is the clubs newest aircraft. The purchase of this aircraft signals the clubs intent to gradually modernise its training fleet so that it can continue to improve efficiency by keeping operating costs to a minimum, in keeping with the clubs mission statement.

Built in Italy, the Tecnam is a single-engined light sports aircraft that combines style with low operating costs. It represents an ideal platform for students, with benign handling, excellent visibility and good performance. The Rotax engine offers comparative efficiency whilst minimising, through a significantly reduced noise footprint, disruption to the local community in the vicinity of RAF Halton.
