Andrew Moon

Andrew is a Gold Seal Flight Instructor, Part 141 Chief Instructor, and corporate jet pilot. He’s also a former flight school Director of Operations, and part-time pilot for a local Sheriff Department. He’s laid back, down-to-earth, and enjoys helping his students keep things simple. And he’s done a lot of that over more than 2,400 hours of instruction. Andrew is the primary instructor for our Instrument and Multi-Engine Ground Schools.

Course Overview

I. History & Overview

Learn about the background of the Tecnam P2006T, how it differs from more common light twins, and the basic design principles.

II. Systems

Super-simple explainations of the major systems of the P2006T with overhauled and simplified visual schematics of the electrical, hydraulic, and engine systems. The manufacturer POH is rather lackluster, but we’ve spent a lot of time improving and clarifying their content to make it more useful to pilots!

III. Performance

Understand how to read Tecnam performance charts, which differ somewhat from U.S. standard systems used by Beechcraft, Cessna, and Piper.

IV. Maneuvers

Walk through common manuevers including pre-flight, takeoffs, landings, steep turns, multi-engine performance maneuvers, and emergency procedures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the Tecnam Course cover all content in the Multi-Engine course?

No! But we do package the Tecnam and Multi-Engine courses for folks looking to earn their multi-engine add-on in the P2006T. The Tecnam course is very Tecnam-specific, while the Multi-Engine course is more focused on general multi-engine operating principles and practical test preparation.

How long should I plan to study?

This is a bit dependent on the individual, but plan on 10 hours of solid study to understand the systems and rehearse the operating procedures.

Can’t I just buy a copy of the POH and study with that?

Absolutely. But the P2006T ground school offers a few advantages over just studying the POH: we offer improved systems diagrams, performance practice problems, focus on differences training, and the ability to study with classmates!

What systems have revised schematics?

We tend to add more as we go, but for now the electrical, retractable gear, engine, and fuel systems have improved, high-resolution, full-color functional schematics!
