This course prepares Private, Commercial, and Airline Transport (ATP) pilots to add multi-engine privileges to their certificate in the Tecnam P2006T, in conjunction with our Multi-Engine Course. The content in this course is specific to operating the P2006T. It’s divided into four sections: an intro and comparrison with other light twins, systems, performance, and maneuvers.
Please note that this course assumes a knowledge base appropriate to your level of certification. In other words, if you are a Private Pilot, you are expected to start this course with the knowledge level expected of a single-engine Private Pilot; Likewise for Commercial and Instrument Rated pilots. The reason for this is simple — When you take your oral and practical exams, you are adding multi-engine privileges to your highest level of certification and rating, and your examiner will evaluate you with that in mind.
In some ways the Tecnam P2006T is very similar to other light twins. It has a few notable differences however, including a high-wing, liquid-cooled engines, and a geared propeller system. It is also manufactured in Italy, and the operating handbook prioritizes metric units. Exercise care that you use the correct units when calculating performance and remembering limitations.
In addition to the following resources, this course includes access to the full access to the resources directory, which includes dozens of handouts and study guides of various topics. It can be a great resource for knocking off rust in other areas of flying! You will also probably want to regularly refer back to the following resources:
- Retractable Gear Schematic
- Electrical Schematic
- Engine Schematic
- Weight and Balance Chart
- Takeoff Performance Table
- Cruise Performance Table
- Landing Performance Table
- Course Study Guide
- Course Study Guide (with answers)
Explaining the H Out of It
Lastly, you may notice that we misspelled Tecnam in some of the videos. There’s no H in Tecnam. We’re in the slow process of going back and fixing it. In the meantime, count on us to “explain the H out of it” throughout the course 😉 Thanks for your understanding!
