Tecnam P92 Echo Super

The P92-JS and P92 ECHO Super are two-seater side by side, single strut braced, high wing aircraft. The plane's outstanding performance and flying qualities together with low operating cost, easy piloting and maintenance, make these aircraft an excellent solution for flying school and training activity, and also for many other missions, such as touring, property inspection, surveillance patrols, etc.
Long experience in this field has allowed Tecnam to create a simple and light structure, easy to inspect and repair, by using many original design solutions, manufacturing methods and tooling.
The wing structure consists of a single spar metal torsion box with an easily detachable leading edge of conventional metal structure.
An integral fuel tank is located in the leading edge section of each half wing, distant from the cabin.

The leading edge tapering near the wing root improves visibility, also in a steep turn. A rear window completes the 360-degree vision. The cabin, which features extra large doors, is 45" wide. This, combined with all surrounding windows, makes the aeroplane seem very roomy. A large luggage area is placed behind the seats.
The dual control sticks come up forward, between pilot's leg, in the conventional manner. The dual rudder pedals, of conventional type, also control the nose wheel steering. The all-moving tailplane provides remarkable longitudinal hands-off stability and control with a minimum drag and weight penalty. A wide control trim-tab also accomplishes the anti-tab function.
The fin has a cantilever structure of light alloy, except for a glass fibre tip. Fin and rudder have ribbed light alloy skins. A push-button switch, on the stick grip, controls the pitch trim. The position indicator is on the instrument panel. The wide slotted flaps, electrically activated, allow stall speeds under 38 kts. With flaps deployed, a steep approach is possible: a very short flare and roll out will result. The ailerons are very effective, allowing an aggressive roll rate. The flaps and aileron are made of light alloy structure.
The wide instrument panel is designed to accommodate standard and optional instrument configuration up to full IFR. The fast opening cowling allow complete and easy access to the engine and equipment. The engine is set low and the cowling slopes down from the windshield, so forward visibility is excellent. The engine is connected to the airframe through a Cr-Mo steel-tube engine mount and by vibration isolating suspension. The firewall is soundproofed.
One 73 kW (100hp) Rotax 912S four cylinder four-stroke liquid/air cooled engine, integrated reduction gear (1:2.415) driving two-blade wooden propeller (Hoffman HO17GHM-174 177C) is installed. Independent fuel valves are located on each side of the cockpit. The gascolator is installed in the engine bay. A back-up electrical pump engages if the mechanical fuel pump malfunctions. Engine is equipped with a 21A 14V generator, 18 Ah battery. All the circuits are breaker protected.
The steel leaf main gear legs provide excellent shock absorption, are trouble free and require no maintenance. The levered suspension nose gear with rubber shock absorber has been designed to resist high impact loading in basic training use. Wheel and hydraulic disc brakes are of standard aircraft type (5.00x5) The brake lever control is located forward between the seats. An hydraulic valve provides the parking brake control.
